If I Was Your Girl

Meredith Russo ↠ 9 review

Her realization that she s a girl the bullying the support of her counselor her suicide attemptaftermath all combining with her present Her parents reactions were also very interesting as one parental figure is better adjusting to Amanda s growth than the other I think I would never have imagined a parent s experience in this situation had I not read this book As a cis woman I felt I really learned a lot about the experience people read this book As a cis woman I felt I really learned a lot about the experience people Amanda go through and it was a very informative and valuable read It made me realize my knowledge on trans issues and what it is like to be a trans person is limited than I previously thought which was a nice wake p call as well as a push to be educated On a related note I d really recommend reading the authors note in the back as I feel it includes extremely important information for trans folk and cis readersI did have a few issues with this book despite enjoying it overall I think at a lot of points there was telling than showing this is excluding the flashbacks obviously It s a fairly short book with short chapters which inevitably made the progression of the story feel very fast without deepening certain scenes I freuently had to reread scenes because important events would occur within just a few sentences and I would be reading the character s reaction before I could even comprehend what had happened I think I would have preferred it to be a bit longer and have the scenes drawn out a bit The climax of the story felt very rushed with too many events packed into what could not have been than AN HOUR OR TWO IT WAS hour or two it was little overwhelming and overpowering It s aspects like this that enable you to tell that it s a debut novel but they are also factors that can be improved with writing experience and time so I m definitely Nyx understanding of these faultsOverall If I Was Your Girl was a fantastic novel I d highly recommend it to literally anyone especially if they re interested in a book about a trans person The thing with If I Was Your Girl is that it s not exactly entertaining enthralling extremely interesting or surprisingInstead it s important eye opening thought provoking and emotionalIt all depends on. Da Hardy não é excepção seiser fazer amigos e sentir se aceite terá de baixar as defesas e deixar Blanco nocturno ue os outros se aproximem Mas comoando guarda m segredo. ,
Find all of my reviews at was going to not post anything in my review space and make some sort of disclaimer instead stating sometimes you just probably shouldn t write anything at all but disclaimer instead stating sometimes you just probably shouldn t write anything at all but I saw my friend Rachel had already done that and I didn t really want to get sued for plagiarism so here I am Instead of leaving nothing I m going to se the author s own words I have in some ways cleaved to stereotypes and even bent rules To Make Amanda S make Amanda s ness as The Ippos King (Wraith Kings, unchallenging to normative assumptions as possible She knew from a very young age She is exclusively attracted to boys She is entirely feminine She passes as a woman with little to no effort She had a surgery that her family should not have been able to afford and she started hormones through legitimate channels before she probably could have in the real w screams from the rooftop READ THIS BOOK 35 stars It s so very important that books like this are written and published and read and IF I WAS YOUR GIRL heralds the beginning of a promising new YA imprint at Flatiron Books I m especially heartened by the fact that not only is this a story about a trans girl written by a trans woman but that the cover art also features a trans model More of this please Still in my eyes there are two major obstacles that prevent this from being a truly great book rather than just a solidworthwhile one But I m glad I read it and I d be interested in seeing what the author does with a little seasoning Review to come 45 Stars I really enjoyed this read It was a superick fast paced novel yet still conuered sensitive topicsThis is definitely a cute sweet book that finds an eual balance with some intense subject matter It was a lovely reading experience to be able to be smiling "With Giddiness One Moment But Feeling Heartbroken " giddiness one moment but feeling heartbroken wanting to cry the next Definitely a book with a whirlwind of emotions If I Was Your Girl was the first book I ve read with a trans main character and I m definitely satisfied Especially considering it s written by a trans author the praise I ve heard about it is definitely deserved I liked how we get a lot of flashbacks from Amanda s past from the time of confusion before.

What you want If you want to read a book that you ll breeze through while laughing and smiling and just having a great time If I Was Your Girl is not the right pickThis is the type of story you read because you want to learn about the LGBT community want to support them in an indirect want to support them in an indirect or try to Discovering Your Heart with the Flag Page understand their lives and themselves betterOr maybe you want something inspiring to remember that there is still goodness in this corrupted worldIt s a beautiful story about a transgender girl named Amanda who wants to survive high school After recent heart shattering events she is sent to her father s house to finish her senior year in high school and start anewShe makes many friends even lands herself a boyfriend Life is good to her She has never been happier But of course all good things come to an end and she is again faced with terrible obstaclesI was half bored as I was reading this book It helped that the chapters and the story itself were short and that there were nonnecessary scenes or long descriptions it was very straight to the point I didn t have a problem finishing the story thanks to all of that but I wasn t that impressed by it You see transgender or not Amanda goes through situations with her parents and peers similar to almost any member of the LGBT community And since I have read than a hundred LGBTMM romanceFF romance books in my life it was nothing new from my perspectiveBut I still loved the main character and even though the romance is not exactly surprising or swoon worthy it s still very sweetI have seen countless reviewers complain about the sugar coating and lack of authenticity and I m left perplexed by that What happens to Amanda is harsh She did get it good at first the friends the boyfriend the attention but I didn t feel as if it wasn t realistic You may wonder What does she know She s not transgender To which I reply Indeed my friends I am not but a world where it is impossible for people like Amanda to have such loving parents make true friends who will stick with her no matter what and get such a beautiful happily ever after is not a world I want to live in Blog Youtube Twitter Instagram Google Bloglovin.
