Here Is My WOW  Pick For This Week:


 The Other Boy

By M.G. Hennessey

Publication Date: September 20th 2016 by HarperCollins 










A heartfelt and timely middle grade story about a transgender boy’s journey toward acceptance and empathy. Perfect for fans of George and Gracefully Grayson.

Twelve-year-old Shane Woods is just a regular boy. He loves pitching for his baseball team, working on his graphic novel, and hanging out with his best friend, Josh. But Shane is keeping something private, something that might make a difference to his teammates, to Josh, and to his new crush, Madeline. And when a classmate threatens to reveal his secret, Shane’s whole world comes crashing down. It will take a lot of courage for Shane to ignore the hate and show the world that he’s still the same boy he was before. And in the end, those who stand beside him may surprise everyone, including Shane.

     







I've haven't read a middle grade book for a couple of years now I have some middle grade books on my tbr list but I have not read them yet. But I've been dying too read a book like this one for a long time now. Because I am very intrigued and curious about the concept plus I have a really good feeling that I will absolutely love and enjoy books like The Other Boy. So I really do want too check this one out when it comes out!
