About the Author:

MEREDITH RUSSO was born, raised, and lives in Tennessee. She started living as her true self in late 2013 and never looked back. If I Was Your Girl was partially inspired by her experiences as a trans woman. Like Amanda, Meredith is a gigantic nerd who spends a lot of her time obsessing over video games and Star Wars.

"An illuminating debut guided by hope and overwhelming kindness.” ―Publishers Weekly, starred review

“A necessary, universal story about feeling different and enduring prejudices...full of love, hope, and truth.” ―Kirkus, starred review

“This is everything a coming-of-age novel should be―honest, complicated, and meaningful. Transcends the typical ‘issue’ novel to be a beautiful tale in its own right.” ―School Library Journal, SLJ Popular Pick

“A thoughtful, truthful, and much-needed coming-of-age tale.” ―The Horn Book Review

“This new novel for teens breaks new ground. Powerful.” ―O Magazine

“A beautifully rendered YA novel, and the first written by a transgender woman about the transgender teen experience.” ―San Francisco Chronicle

“A vivid, compassionate portrait of a teen finding her place.” ―The Washington Post

"Russo, a trans woman, writes with authority and empathy, giving readers not only an intellectual but also an emotional understanding of Amanda and her compelling story. Never didactic, this debut is a valuable contribution to the slender but growing body of literature of trans teens." ―ALA Booklist

“Beautiful, smart, and so urgently needed, If I Was Your Girl should be required reading for every teen―scratch that, every person―in America. This book is exactly what YA is for: to break ground, to break hearts, to teach us empathy, to find the universal in the specific. I loved every word. You will, too.“ Julie Buxbaum, New York Times bestselling author of Tell Me Three Things and What to Say Next

If I Was Your Girl is the type of book you read and want to immediately share, because it's too important to keep to yourself.” ―Julie Murphy, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Dumplin' and Ramona Blue

If I Was Your Girl is important and necessary and brave, and deeply, electrically inspiring. Read this wonderful book. Just read it.” ―Jennifer Niven, New York Times bestselling author of All the Bright Places and Holding Up the Universe

If I Was Your Girl will change minds and open hearts.” ―Nina Lacour, author of We Are Okay, Hold Still, and Everything Leads to You

If I Was Your Girl is real and raw and layered and wonderful.” ―Alex Gino, Stonewall Award-winning author of George

“Pure magic.” ―Book Riot
