The Other Boy by M.G. Hennessey
Twelve year old Shane Woods is a transgender boy who has moved with his mom to a new city and new school and is keeping the fact that he is transgender secret, or as his mother calls it, private. His best friend, Josh does not know he is transgender, nor does anyone else at his school. He is ready to take hormones, but his father is concerned about that. The book discusses the issues of being a transgender child and also has a good story. I think middle grade children will enjoy this book.
