At the beginning of 2016, I started the Read Harder Challenge. It gave a series of different categories to get you out of your reading rut. I started out great but waned toward the end.
I’m surprised by the categories I didn’t get to like a book with only 100 pages or a book about feminism. And even though many of these books weren’t what I’d normally pick up, I would recommend them all, especially George. If you struggle at all about issues with transgender rights, this book will make the difficulties transgendered kids face crystal clear.
