Middle Grade Monday is an original weekly meme created to spotlight a great middle grade book!
LILY AND DUNKIN by Donna Gephart has been on my TBR for what feels like a super long time. It’s one of those book I keep meaning to pick up.
Sometimes our hearts see things our eyes can’t.
Lily Jo McGrother, born Timothy McGrother, is a girl. But being a girl is not so easy when you look like a boy. Especially when you’re in the eighth grade.
Dunkin Dorfman, birth name Norbert Dorfman, is dealing with bipolar disorder and has just moved from the New Jersey town he’s called home for the past thirteen years. This would be hard enough, but the fact that he is also hiding from a painful secret makes it even worse.
One summer morning, Lily Jo McGrother meets Dunkin Dorfman, and their lives forever change.
Have any of you read this book or know of any reviews from trans reviewers?
