Review by Pete Timberlake.
This is a great book about a girl that is born in a boy's body and a boy with bipolar disorder. They meet in a Florida town and become good friends. There is a lot of drama. They try to save a tree named Bob together.

I loved this book because of the emotions. I also liked the character of Lily (the girl). I recommend this for middle schoolers only.
