Boy2Girl by Terence Blacker

I picked this YA novel up from a book display at the library because the cover art was interesting. It sort of reminded me of the Twelfth Night remake She’s the Man that I just watched. As is appropriate for a book dealing with seventh grades (Year 8 in London) the whole boy dressing up like a girl issue is a significant part of the plot but not an in depth exploration of gender identity issues. The best part of this story is the frequently changing points of view from which it is told, and the only drawback is that the main character never has a voice.

I checked it out. 296 pgs.
