But Amanda is keeping a secret, and she's determined not to get too close to anyone. But when she meets sweet, easygoing Grant, Amanda can't help but start to let him into her life. As they spend more time together, she realizes just how much she is losing by guarding her heart. She finds herself yearning to share with Grant everything about herself, including her past. But Amanda's terrified that once she tells him the truth, he won't be able to see past it. Because the secret that Amanda's been keeping? It's that at her old school, she used to be Andrew. Will the truth cost Amanda her new life, and her new love? If I Was Your Girl is a universal story about feeling different—and a love story that everyone will root for.

A powerful book that is not for young readers, for 15 and older. (unless you parents read it first).

This book led to many good conversations with my older students, who introduced me to it.

Amanda moves to a small town in Tennessee after a violent encounter in Atlanta. Emotions start at a simmer and soon run to a full boil, as we learn her story. This is a powerful story about a transgender teen, and the emotions, obstacles, and triumphs she encounters through her transformation.

After a break down and attempted suicide, Amanda moves to get a fresh start. In a new home, in a new town, and reintroduced to her (once upon a time) father, she finally has the opportunity to live as her true self. She makes new friends, finds the inner strength she is looking for, and resolves her relationship with her father. Finally, parent angst is pushed aside as she begins the first romance of her life.

This book was a pleasant surprise to me. I read it a few summers ago, and at times it made me cry along with Amanda.
