Square Fish

Matthew’s American cousin, Sam, has come to London to live with the family. Sam is a charismatic, funny kid, but can he be trusted to be a reliable friend? Matthew and his “mates” decide that Sam must undertake a challenge in order to prove himself: He must start off his new year at the school posing as a girl. It turns out that Sam makes a great girl. He fools everyone at Bradbury Hill School, stepping over lines and blurring boundaries of all sorts. And the longer the prank goes on, the more outlandish the repercussions.

REVIEWS

Praise for Boy2Girl

“What a premise! Think Gordon Korman’s No More Dead Dogs meets Jerry Spinelli’s Stargirl.”—School Library Journal
 
“The farcical elements are sure to please, but there’s plenty of thought-provoking material here, too.”—Booklist
 
“Blacker brings gender bending to a new level of hilarity and suspense in this contemporary novel set in suburban London. The character of Sam-turned-Samantha will prompt readers to reconsider their preconceptions about the sexes and the roles people play.”—Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
