George wants to play the role of Charlotte in the school play, but her best friend Kelly earns the role. George's teacher stresses there are too many girls who want to play the role, and it wouldn't be fair to cast George in it.
At home, George refers to herself as Melissa, but not out loud. She cherishes her lip balm in the winter months, and "finds" her mom's supply during the springtime.
How can George tell everyone who she really is without being bullied?
