Publisher Description

Meredith Russo's award-winning, big-hearted novel If I Was Your Girl is about being seen for who you really are, with a love story you can't help but root for!

Amanda Hardy is the new girl in school. Like anyone else, all she wants is to make friends and fit in. But Amanda is keeping a secret, and she’s determined not to get too close to anyone.

But when she meets sweet, easygoing Grant, Amanda can’t help but start to let him into her life. As they spend more time together, she realizes just how much she is losing by guarding her heart. She finds herself yearning to share with Grant everything about herself, including her past. But Amanda’s terrified that once she tells him the truth, he won't be able to see past it.

Because the secret that Amanda’s been keeping? It's that at her old school, she used to be Andrew. Will the truth cost Amanda her new life, and her new love?

Loudly Crying Face“This book is a fictional take on the life of a trans girl in high school in the Deep South. If you decide to read this book stock up on some tissues because you are going to vacillate between laughing, raging, and crying from the beginning to the end. After reading I can tell you for sure you’d be lucky if you knew Ms Amanda or anyone like her 🏳️‍⚧️”
