It's a mission to change his life. And that's a pretty big deal.

Great book! I’ve read George as well, I think it’s important to have books like these, for trans kids to tell them that they’re not weird, there’s a whole loving community of people like them, and it’s important for cis kids as well, to educate them about the troubles their peers may be having, and grow up to be great allies. And for that one person saying we’re “pushing this agenda to normalize homosexuality” picture being pointed at, mocked, abused, and murdered for being straight. You kiss someone of the opposite gender in public and have to be ready for the backlash. You wouldn’t enjoy that, would you? But you can’t help loving them. So, if you think we’re trying to push our gay agenda, stop pushing your straight one, let people be happy. Love is love.

What an amazing book. This is a great book for kids who maybe feel like they don't fit in with social norms. Liv is a great role model.

Indoctrinate much? This is on the recommended list for a 4th grader? I can't believe that you're pushing this agenda to normalize homosexuality. I'm not impressed with the recommendation.
