The Other Boy
Shane has always known he was a boy - not a girl, not a tomboy. Once he told his parents he started to act more like a boy at school but when his mom moved he was able to start fresh - no one knew that he used to be a girl. He has a best friend, he has started hormone treatments, he plays for the school baseball team, and he even has a kind of girlfriend. But when he mistakenly tells a rival where he used to go to school the truth comes out. Shane will soon find out who his real friends are.
I found this book about the transgender experience far more realistic than others I have read and therefore more hopeful.
