On a much less serious and more upbeat note than the last book, I present to you:
The Pants Project by Cat Clarke
Liv is a young boy who has just started middle school. He has two moms and a younger brother, and he loves them both dearly. What he doesn’t love, however? The fact that his new middle school has a uniform. And the girls have to wear skirts.
Because, you see, Liv is a closeted trans boy - and he very, very much does NOT want to wear a skirt.
Thus begins Liv’s campaign, joined by new friends, to let anyone at this school wear pants if they want to! It’s an absolutely adorable book. Liv’s two moms are great, and the book nicely deals with the homophobia he faces for having them, there’s a fantastic side cast (included a disabled character! but sssh spoilers) and quite frankly this book was a JOY.
I read it all in less than one hour in the park, and I absolutely adored it. A must read for anyone seeking novels abt trans characters, especially trans boys, bc Liv is an absolute gem.
This was a really nice book, and I absolutely recommend it.
