Staff Reviews


Welcome back to Jung Middle School and the students of the Rainbow Spectrum Club! This time, we meet Green Gibson, a nonbinary seventh grader who is struggling with some of the changes happening to their body as well as having their first crush on a boy who is hesitant to identify himself as queer. As Green considers their options with regards to hormone blockers, they also come to understand that everyone must walk their own path. 
Once again, Alex Gino has created an essential work in middle grade queer fiction. When I first read Melissa, I was blown away by the honesty of her story, and it was an eye-opening experience into the difficult reality of someone who is not born in the body that they identify with. With each of their subsequent books, Alex Gino has continued to create safe and heartwarming spaces where not only readers who identify with their characters can see themselves and feel reassured, but also where someone who is not from the LGBTQIA+ community can learn how to be a better ally to their peers

Description


From the bestselling author of MELISSA, a new book putting a non-binary kid named Green at center stage.

CRUSHES ARE CONFUSING.

Green is very lucky. They've got a supportive dad, friendly neighbors, and good friends. They've figured out a lot of things... but they can’t figure out what to do about Ronnie.

Ronnie's a boy who's been in Green's class for awhile. He's sweet. Funny. And lately, Green's heart has raced a little faster whenever he's around.

Green is pretty sure about their own feelings. But when it comes to how Ronnie feels, they have ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA.

When Green doesn't get a part in the school musical -- a very untraditional version of The Wizard of Oz -- they join the crew to work alongside Ronnie.Is this a good idea?Green’s about to find out…
