    Jilly thinks she's figured out how life works. But when her sister Emma is born deaf, she realizes how much she still has to learn. A big fantasy reader, Jilly connects with another fan, Derek, who is African American and a deaf ASL user. She goes to Derek for advice but doesn't always know the best way to ask for it and makes some mistakes along the way. Jilly has to step back to learn to be an ally, a sister, and a friend, understanding that life works in different ways for different people, and that being open to change can make you change in the best possible ways.

    "Ich bin kein Junge, ich bin ein Mädchen", würde George am liebsten laut schreien, wenn ihre Mutter "Mein Junge" zu ihr sagt. Aber sie traut sich nicht. Noch nicht einmal ihre beste Freundin weiß, was mit ihr los ist. Aber eines Tages entscheidet George, dass alle es wissen sollen... George erzählt vom Anderssein, von Träumen und Wünschen und macht Mut, seinen eigenen Weg zu gehen. Zu sein, wer man ist. Der Musiker Rainer Bielfeldt begleitet Georges Weg mit einfühlsamer Klaviermusik.
