Description

The story jumps back and forth between Amanda now, with some flashbacks to when she was a child and then the incidents leading up to her transition. Later in the evening, she is confronted in the bathroom by a drunk Bee who comes on to her aggressively.

Featuring a vibrant rainbow design, and our super-sized Q logo, you won't find a more stylish way to make a statement.As she gets to know and trust the new people in her life, the more Amanda wonders about whether or not she wants to tell them she's a transsexual, but her father continually warns her to be careful. As the author put it in her note at the end of the book, Amanda is just an ordinary girl who happens to have a different medical history. They decide that if she thinks she can brave it she can move back and keep going to school where she’s been outed. She would hug me and we would sit down and watch awful reality TV shows together and she would fall asleep halfway through, and then nothing would change.

Now she can be herself without worrying how people react; here, they will only ever have known her as Amanda. She declines any advance knowing that it would only cause trouble and that her dad would strongly disapprove. There was one part where a character proposes a theory that homophobes are just closeted gay people hating on other gay people out of insecurity and inability to accept their own secret gayness. But this, this is the romance that even I ruted for, and when you crack me, the hardest of the lot when it comes to romance, you know you've done a good job.If I Was Your Girl was very heart-wrenching at times, but Amanda’s courage and ability to fight against peoples’ attempts to destroy her is also strangely uplifting. It’s also incredibly optimistic and definitely has the best case scenario ending but I think that works for the purpose of this book. She knows from before just how cruel and violent people can be when they know the truth, and doesn't want to not only lose the new people in her life, but lose the life she currently has; with passing so easily, no-one has any clue about Amanda's past, so as long as no-one knows, she can simply be. In the intervening years, things haven’t been easy for Amanda – in fact things got so bad she even attempted suicide. And it’s not just that he always stops when Amanda hesitates or says she wants to slow down—though he does—but he actually, literally asks permission to kiss her.
