Publisher's Summary

What if who you are on the outside doesn't match who you are on the inside?

Grayson Sender has been holding onto a secret for what seems like forever: "He" is a girl on the inside, stuck in the wrong gender's body. The weight of this secret is crushing, but sharing it would mean facing ridicule, scorn, rejection, or worse. Despite the risks, Grayson's true self itches to break free.

Will new strength from an unexpected friendship and a caring teacher's wisdom be enough to help Grayson step into the spotlight she was born to inhabit?

Debut author Ami Polonsky's moving, beautifully written novel about identity, self-esteem, and friendship shines with the strength of a young person's spirit and the enduring power of acceptance.

Narrator doesn’t work

My 11-year-old was assigned this book for school. I previewed the paper version, and really enjoyed it. In an effort to help him get the book read in time, we tried the Audible version to listen to in the car and in the evenings at home. Unfortunately, the narrator just doesn’t work well with the story. It’s jarring to listen to, and interrupts the flow of the book. A smoother voice without the fall at the end of every word and phrase would sound better.
