Publisher's Summary

A new kind of bighearted audiobook about being seen for who you really are.
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?
If I Was Your Girl is a universal story about feeling different - and a love story that everyone will root for.

Great Book!

It help me deal with my prejudices through a really engaging story, read by a terrific narrator. This is a book that lots of young people should read and a lot of educators as well. I was forced to grapple with, and I am still grappling with what I would have done if I were any of the characters: amazingly complicated.

Would you try another book from Meredith Russo and/or Samia Mounts?


Would you recommend If I Was Your Girl to your friends? Why or why not?

The V/o work was unstoppable.
But as a trans woman I really don't see much of a conflict in the story. I get that she had a troubled passed and as a character the story did what it could to show me that. But by the time the story first started . She already over came everything. She had a surgery, she's apparently gorgeous,has new accepting friends, and has a hard bodied jock for a boyfriend girls oogle at .Every one she did tell was supportive by the time the story reached the beginning none of the things she already beat mattered because she did it already. I know it jumped time but i thought was disappointing .

Which character – as performed by Samia Mounts – was your favorite?

I guess the boyfriend

Could you see If I Was Your Girl being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

I don't because Hollywood screws up any trans thing.
