George by Alex Gino
This book shouldn't be dismissed simply because it is being released in the post Caitlin Jenner world and could be accused as jumping on a trendy topic. Gino does a good job of putting the reader in George's brain and making you feel the discord of living in the wrong body. It is a good choice for middle schools and the only thing that could be objected to is just the subject matter in general as there is nothing edgy in it other than that. However, I found George's journey to be a little too simple. I still liked the book but for transgender lit, I prefer Gracefully Grayson for more depth.
