By Terence Blacker

Sam is 13, newly orphaned, and moves to London to live with his aunt, uncle, and his cousin Matthew.

Sam's a tough guy, and immediately gets into trouble. So Matthew and his friends come up with an initiation "hazing" of sorts for Sam - he has to attend his new school AS A GIRL for the first week.

Sam does it, attending school as "Samantha" and fools everyone - teachers and students alike!

Suddenly, Samantha is heading for huge popularity as a liberated, everyone-wants-to-be-like-her young woman, and Sam - by pretending to be a girl who is on her way to becoming a woman - starts to learn how to be a boy growing up to be a man.

I like the sound of this one. It really is amazing what you can learn from walking that mile in someone else's shoes.
