Friends, we made the bold statement last Fall that IF I WAS YOUR GIRL by Meredith Russo is going to be HUGE. Then the buzz started (and that was before we shared Meredith’s amazing author note):

And now, IF I WAS YOUR GIRL has two starred reviews!

Russo has written a story that many trans teens—and adults—have been wanting: a sweet, believable romance that stokes the fires of hope without devolving into saccharine perfection or horrific tragedy. Above all, this is a necessary, universal story about feeling different and enduring prejudices, and it’s full of love, hope, engaging writing, and truth.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“In an illuminating debut guided by hope and overwhelming kindness, Russo demonstrates the challenges teens face in finding ‘the truest version’ of themselves.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review
