The Pants Project by Cat Clarke
This is a cute, fun to read story about Liv, who begins 6th grade in a new school with a dress code that all girls must wear skirts. She doesn't want to wear a skirt because she doesn't feel like she is a girl, but she hasn't told her moms that or anyone at all. As she navigates the school year, she makes friends with a boy named Jacob and together they fight for the right for girls to wear pants to school and learn to accept themselves as they are. The book addresses bullying, having two moms, transgender and other issues in a well written way. I think that kids will enjoy this book.
