Jamie by L.D. Lapinski



I read this book all in one sitting. It is interesting but fun, easy to read but not childish, a sort of coming of age type story. Jamie is non-binary and they are sick of having to choose toilets, clothes, and changing rooms. But as year seven approaches, Jamie realises that they’re going to have to make a much bigger decision – choosing between Queen Elizabeth’s High School for Girls and Joseph’s Academy for Boys. A laugh out loud story of joy and acceptance. Suitable for ages 2 to 200! By: Lupita (age 11). Rating: 4.5/5.

A beautiful and uplifting story from L.D. Lapinski, author of The Strangeworlds Travel Agency, about how to make your own place when the world doesn’t think you fit anywhere. For fans of Me, My Dad and The End of The Rainbow.

Jamie Rambeau is a happy 11-year-old non-binary kid who likes nothing better than hanging out with their two best friends Daisy and Ash. But when the trio find out that in Year Seven they will be separated into one school for boys and another for girls, their friendship suddenly seems at risk. And when Jamie realises no one has thought about where they are going to go, they decide to take matters into their own hands, and sort it all out once and for all.

As the friends’ efforts to raise awareness eventually become a rooftop protest against the binary rules for the local schools, Jamie realises that if they don’t figure out a way forwards, they might be at risk of losing both their friends forever…
