I am a girl!

A girl works up the nerve to ask a boy out – and tell him that she was born male

Adolescence is often a time of awkwardness and uncertainty, but for thirteen-year-old Joppe, things are going pretty well. She has a loving family, great friends, and a crush on Brian, a cute boy in her neighborhood. But as she and her friends strategize about how to ask Brian out, one question keeps coming up: how to tell him that she was born male? In this touching portrait, Joppe speaks openly about her life as a young transsexual woman, but in the end, her most important concern is not her gender, but whether she will get that date.
