George; Alex Gino

GeorgeGeorge by Alex Gino
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I can see the love for this book: the authentic voice makes you root for George and hope her problems can be resolved. So many of these books are either inauthentic. It's the age that concerns me a little, not George's age but the age of the proposed readers. This is not a book that would be on the shelves of more traditional or conservative schools, but those are precisely the shelves where it needs to be (I know one school that considers itself to be liberal, but is very conservative about what the students read).
