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.


Beschreibung von Audible


"[Narrator Samia] Mounts eloquently depicts the changes that take place after Andrew’s surgery - when he becomes Amanda.... Mounts expresses the delight Amanda feels as girlfriends accept her and gentle, thoughtful Grant falls in love with her. Mounts provides a bittersweet tone as Amanda blossoms with the tender feelings of first love even as she fears revealing her secret. Her feelings are juxtaposed with her father’s fear for her safety amid the narrow-mindedness of the small Southern town where they live, which Mounts suggests through the judicious use of regional accents."

Heartbreakingly Beautiful

This was the first book with a transwoman I have ever picked up. I listen to this in the bus and train while commuting to work and cried like a baby but I didn't care because this story touched my heart. The southern accent was wonderful as well but since I'm not Southern nor American I can't say for sure if they weren't a little over the top at points.

The authors note at the end was important so please listen to it as well
