George, a fourth-grade boy who calls herself Melissa, wants to play the part of Charlotte in a student production of Charlotte's Web. But boys don't play girls' parts, according to the teacher. If the pronoun herself sounds confusing for a boy named George, it's because George feels like and wants to be a girl. As older brother Scott says, "It kind of makes sense; you don't make a very good boy." Debut audiobook narrator Clayton reads in what appears to be her normal speaking voice, never attempting to replicate 10-year-olds and only slightly changing tones for the adult characters. Clayton puts some emotion into her voice when reflecting George's mother's initial surprise and confusion when George reveals her feelings. Nevertheless, this sensitive, age-appropriate portrayal of a youngster dealing with gender identity may be best served by a reader who gets out of the way and tackles the narrative in a such a straightforward, no-frills manner.

layton's rich alto voice is ideal for the text's rejection of a strict gender binary. She brings depth and emotion to George's first-person narration, while also fully embracing the performance of other characters such as George's sweet friend Kelly; her bro of a brother, Scott; her loving but conflicted mother; and everyone from the bully to the school principal. To paraphrase Charlotte, this is Some Audiobook! megan dowd lambert
