"a rare and essential addition to books for this age group"

From Alex Gino, author of George, comes the sequel Rick (Scholastic). As middle school and puberty begin, Rick is keen to befriend Melissa, whom he previously knew as George, but Rick’s best friend, Jeff, is violently homophobic and transphobic. This exploration of feelings, change, courage and acceptance is a rare and essential addition to books for this age group.
