    When English school lad, Robert is cast in the role of Rosalind opposite the crush worthy Milena, the appeal of dressing as a girl and using make up, and the attention that it gets from Milena quickly has him confused and questioning his assumptions about gender and stereotypes.This is an amazing read While it first seemed to be over too quickly, it accomplished everything it ought to Personally I ve never really understood the allure of tranvestitism among straights but this little book made When English school lad, Robert is cast in the role of Rosalind opposite the crush worthy Milena, the appeal of dressing as a girl and using make up, and the attention that it gets from Milena quickly has him confused and questioning his assumptions about gender and stereotypes.This is an amazing read While it first seemed to be over too quickly, it accomplished everything it ought to Personally I ve never really understood the allure of tranvestitism among straights but this little book made it credible For such a short book, it accomplishes much You ll geniunely like these characters, enjoy spending time in their world, and perhaps gain a new perspective along the way At 147 pages that s not bad And in what other book can you catch a grade 10 er paraphrasing Kierkegaard Life can only be understood backwards but it must be lived forwards S ren Kierkegaard

    This British novel about gender and sexuality is cleverly staged around Shakespeare s gender bending play As You Like It When Robert is assigned the role of Rosalind in a class reading of the play, he is surprised to discover he not only enjoys dressing as girl, but that his crush Milena seems to like it too As Robert struggles to wrap his mind around the idea that his preconceived notions of boys and girls no longer fit into little boxes, he raisesquestions than answers, Milena agrees t This British novel about gender and sexuality is cleverly staged around Shakespeare s gender bending play As You Like It When Robert is assigned the role of Rosalind in a class reading of the play, he is surprised to discover he not only enjoys dressing as girl, but that his crush Milena seems to like it too As Robert struggles to wrap his mind around the idea that his preconceived notions of boys and girls no longer fit into little boxes, he raisesquestions than answers, Milena agrees to a date, and his best mate Kev gets homophobic on him A party invitation instructing attendees to dress as the opposite sex brings about a predictable climax.In spite of knowing how the story will end, the author makes the journey there half the fun, keeping the serious story light and mixing in quotes from Shakespeare with true to life characters and issues The underlying themes that we are all a mix of feminine and masculine, that we should be accepting of ourselves and one another, that there is no such thing as normal and that it is possible to surpass labels and just be are all positive ideas that teens and possibly our politicians need to have reinforced, not just in their literature, but in the world around them Not as fluffy as David Levithan s Boy Meets Boy Knopf, 2003 or as serious as a Nancy Garden novel, The Flip Side would make a fantastic title for book discussion

    Some YA Brit fic about a genderbending Shakespeare performance in a contemporary British high school whatever they call them there In Shakespeare s day, the female roles were played by boys and men It looks like in this book they have girls playing the male roles We ll see It s short let s hope it s sweet.

    Took me forever to find this book after I read it MONTHS AGO Last school year I really like how it was based through his life one way, and then it switched to how he kind of wanted his life to sort of be Keeping everything inside basically made him not be able to be open and free with EVERYTHING, and the same goes for his friend But I definitely enjoyed this book

    This book addressed a very controversial topic that may be a struggle for some students It could be a good book for those who do struggle with this However, it might be too controversial and confusing for those who do not struggle with these issues.
