George

 by Alex Gino

 

George knows she looks like a boy. Her mother and everyone else refer to her as a boy. Deep down, however, George knows that she is really a girl. She relishes the stolen moments when she can read fashion magazines and apply lip gloss. As the school play, Charlotte’s Web, approaches, the thing that George wants most in the world is to play Charlotte—a role that she is shut out of because her teacher has decided that only girls can play Charlotte. As George struggles with her desire to be recognized as a girl and her fear of what will happen to her when people find out, she discovers that to the people who love her best the pronoun she uses doesn’t really matter.

The Thing About Jellyfish

 by Ali Benjamin

Suzy knows lots of facts, lots.  But even though she has lots and lots of facts and trivia, she does not have the answer as to why her best friend has passed away. This weights heavily on Suzy, to the point where she stops talking unless it is absolutely necessary.  The Thing About Jellyfish follows Suzy in the months after her friend has passed and shows how one young girl deals with friends, teachers and her parents while trying to figure out how this horrible thing could happen.
