Staff Reviews

George is a 4th-grader with a problem. She wants to play Charlotte (the wise spider from Charlotte’s Web) in the school play. She knows all the lines and she’s the one who cried the hardest at the ending. But only girls get to play Charlotte, and according to everybody except George, she’s a boy. Not even her loopy but loyal best friend gets it, nor her loving (and concerned) mother. George has always known she’s a girl, but how can she break it to the people closest to her? George has already won the hearts of a wide range of readers, and if you’ll let her, she is sure to charm you too.

— Tera


When people look at George, they think they see a boy. But she knows she's not a boy. She knows she's a girl.

George 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. George 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, George comes up with a plan. Not just so she can be Charlotte -- but so everyone can know who she is, once and for all.
