Hi guys, something you probably don't know about me is that i love books and reading. I always have and most likely always will. I wanted to do a book review and might do some more in the future.

The first book i am going to do a review on is, If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo.

Synopsis

Amanda Hardy is the new girl at school. Like everyone else, all she wants to so is make friends and fit in. But Amanda is holding back because she has a secret, that she won't even tell the boy shes falling in love with.

At her old school, she was called Andrew.

My Thoughts

I loved this book, it is about a trans gender woman. I had never really seen any books like this before and when i saw it in the shop and read the back i thought it would be really interesting for me to read. I just want to say that i know this book will not be for everyone but i personally have no problem with the LGBTQ+ community, if you do then this book will not be for you.

I found the book very interesting seeing as i didn't know much about the trans community, however this is not a book about the trans community, it is about Amanda trying to figure out life as a girl and to deal with keeping her true identity a secret from everyone around her. It shows how her being her true self changes the people in her life, good and bad. The book makes you realize how hurtful the world can be and how awful the people who live in it actually are.

I would give this book a 4/5 stars. The reason i am giving this book only 4 stars is because of the ending. Now I'm not going to spoil the ending but i think there was a few unanswered questions. When i finish a book i want every single question under the sun to be answered so that i can have closure with the characters. (I'm sure I'm not the only one who is like this.) I wanted to know what happened after she explained everything, but we didn't get told.

However the rest of the book was amazing and i loved Meredith Russo's style of writing and would love to see more from her.

Thank you for reading, i will be doing more book related articles in the future, including recommendations and reviews. I hope you enjoyed this review and are interested in reading the book.
