I loved this book, surprisingly. I was a little hesitant going into it (not because of an lgbtq+ main character, but for other reasons). I've been in a very high-fantasy mood this past month and generally the only middle grade I gravitate to currently are action-packed ones like Percy Jackson or Fablehaven. So it was amazing for me to open up this book and be hooked on the first page.

Liv was such an amazing character. I loved him. I loved his personality and the way he went about standing up for what he wanted.  The different number of trials and tribulations that he goes through in this book really struck a chord in me. I think that this book is so important, especially for young adults and children. I have been a huge supporter of the lgbtq+ community for as long as I can remember, but this book opened my eyes even more to what some members of this community go through on a daily basis.

Liv is made fun of for having two moms. Nobody knows he's transgender (except his dog), but he still gets made fun of for having a hairstyle different from the girls in the school and for wanting to wear pants. Operation Pants Project begins. Liv wants to change the dress code, and maybe make some new friends and change his life as well.

I think that this book is such an important one for people of all ages to read. Mostly, I think that this book will really help younger teenagers who are struggling with discovering who they are or not knowing what they're feelings. Maybe this book can show them that they are not the only ones who feel a certain way. Maybe they can find a kindred spirit in Liv.

I loved Liv. I loved his motivations. Most of all, I loved this book.


Thanks for reading
