If I Was Your Girl
For Amanda, a trans high school student in Tennessee and the protagonist of If I Was Your Girl, going unnoticed is a matter of survival. But her plans to inconspicuously pass the time until graduation are foiled when she attracts the friendship of a spirited group of female students and Grant, a football-playing romantic whose affections force Amanda to consider shedding secrecy, in this powerful YA debut from transgender author Meredith Russo.
