I’m Not a Girl
Jessica Verdi | Author and Editor

Nobody seems to understand that Hannah is not a girl.

His parents ask why he won’t wear the cute outfits they pick out. His friend thinks he must be a tomboy. His teacher insists he should be proud to be a girl.

But a birthday wish, a new word, and a stroke of courage might be just what Hannah needs to finally show the world who he really is.

Based on a true transgender identity journey, I’m Not a Girl is an empowering story about a boy who is determined to be himself.

Praise:

 

A 2021 ALA Rainbow List pick!

 

⭐️  “An important book that can serve as a conversation starter with gender-expansive children and as a tool for cis children to build empathy.” ―Bookliststarred review

 

“Lyons, a 12-year-old trans boy, shares his story in clear, relatable language, sensitively assisted by Verdi and capably supported by Simpson’s simple, emotive illustrations: throughout, the protagonist’s green eyes express frustration, anxiety, and, finally, happiness.” ―Publishers Weekly
