The unforgettable debut from Stonewall Award Winner Alex Gino.
George joins the Scholastic Gold line, which features award-winning and beloved novels. Includes exclusive bonus content!
When people look at Melissa, they think they see a boy named George. But she knows she's not a boy. She knows she's a girl.
Melissa thinks she’ll have to keep this a secret forever. Then her teacher announces that their class play is going to be Charlotte's Web. Melissa really, really, REALLY wants to play Charlotte. But the teacher says she can't even try out for the part... because she's a boy.
With the help of her best friend, Kelly, Melissa comes up with a plan. Not just so she can be Charlotte but so everyone can know who she is, once and for all.
Alex Gino loves glitter, ice cream, gardening, awe-ful puns, and stories that reflect the diversity and complexity of being alive. George was their first novel. George was a winner of the Children's Stonewall Award, the Lambda Literary Award, and the Children's Choice Book Awards, among a host of others. George was also featured on several Best of the Year lists. For more about Alex, please visit alexgino.com.
Read an Excerpt
From George George reached the end of Charlotte’s monologue and was ready for the dialogue with Wilbur that followed. But George didn’t hear her cue. She opened her eyes. Ms. Udell was frowning, and a thick crease had formed across her forehead.
"George, what was that?" she asked.
"I . . . ," started George, but there were no words to finish the sentence. "I . . ."
"Was that supposed to be some kind of joke? Because it wasn’t very funny."
"It wasn’t a joke. I want to be Charlotte." George’s voice sounded much smaller now that she was speaking her own words.
"You know I can’t very well cast you as Charlotte. I have too many girls who want the part. Besides, imagine how confused people would be. Now, if you’re interested in being Wilbur, that’s a possibility. Or maybe Templetonhe’s a funny guy."
