Reviews

This is arguably the only male transgender story for younger children and important accordingly. Silverman handles her sensitive material extremely well, with a light, non-didactic touch. The spirit of the story is nicely augmented by Hatam's sprightly cartoon illustrations. A helpful appended author's note offers context for the story, which belongs in every library.--Booklist, STARRED REVIEW
[P]rovides a necessary message of acceptance and representation for transgender boys...--Kirkus Reviews
