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

Just when George thinks she’ll have to keep her secret forever, her teacher announces that their class play is going to be Charlotte’s Web. George 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. It’s not just so she can be Charlotte—but so everyone can know who she truly is, once and for all.
