*Starred Review* This coming-of-age story is told from the perspective of a sixth-grader named Annabelle, who attends a small-town school that runs a different program from the traditional public school. When a new student joins her class, which is composed of the same kids she's known for years, it's a big deal. The bigger deal? Her new friend Bailey is nonbinary, and just like that, her world expands tenfold. Through her friendship with Bailey, Annabelle learns to navigate all the new things she's learning about queer communities while also finding names for her own identity and totally crushing on her new friend. Meanwhile, Annabelle learns that her own dad is trans, and his attitudes about gender cause friction with Bailey's more fluid understanding. Lukoff offers a story with vivid, well-rounded characters that never talks down to kids; Annabelle's teacher attempts to instruct the class in some different perspectives on history, but pushback from the administration (and one very vocal member of Annabelle's class) will likely resonate with plenty of middle-schoolers and encourage them to consider who has power in their own classrooms. Themes of inclusion and privilege in today's society are seamlessly integrated into the familiar plot of a kid's first crush, and the focus on the great ways that communities can come together to keep everyone within them safe is a gratifying through line.
