#48HBC: George

Book finished: George by Alex Gino

This is a book getting much buzz (at least in my bloggity teacher/librarian circles) and I was really excited to be sent an ARC. This is a middle-grade story about George, who desperately wants to play Charlotte in her school's production of Charlotte's Web. But Charlotte is a girl part. And George is not sure that they'll let her play Charlotte because George is a girl who is in a boy's body. This is a much-needed addition to our middle-grade shelves and will proudly take its place alongside Ami Polonsky's Gracefully Grayson
