Description

From the award-winning author of George, the story of a boy named Rick who needs to explore his own identity apart from his jerk of a best friend.

Rick's never questioned much. He's gone along with his best friend Jeff even when Jeff's acted like a bully and a jerk. He's let his father joke with him about which hot girls he might want to date even though that kind of talk always makes him uncomfortable. And he hasn't given his own identity much thought, because everyone else around him seemed to have figured it out.

But now Rick's gotten to middle school, and new doors are opening. One of them leads to the school's Rainbow Spectrum club, where kids of many genders and identities congregate, including Melissa, the girl who sits in front of Rick in class and seems to have her life together. Rick wants his own life to be that...understood. Even if it means breaking some old friendships and making some new ones.

As they did in their groundbreaking novel George, in Rick, award-winning author Alex Gino explores what it means to search for your own place in the world...and all the steps you and the people around you need to take in order to get where you need to be.

    This is such a wholesome book and I hope the world gets to see more of these middle grade queer books. The world needs positive vibes and learning about sexual orientations at such an early age will mitigate bullying and promote acceptance. Please add this to your Pride reads. It's worth it!

    This was an educational read (both for kids and adults) which I truly enjoyed. I loved the cameos and the idea of the Rainbow Spectrum club! The relationship between Rick and his grandfather was also precious! Who doesn't want a cosplaying grandpa? It was great that this book has ended in a very good and positive way but there were some issues that I wished were explored more. Overall, this was a great story about finding your identity especially at a very young age.

    OMG THIS IS PERFECT. This was so precious and so wholesome. I loved Rick's character development! I loved the writing style and I loved the way gender and sexuality was tackled in the story—with such care and love and understanding! That's how it should be. And I wish that's how it was in real life, too. But hey, this book is a hopeful story and change starts here. ? Everybody please go read this book! Read it to your kids, your parents, your friends, your students, everyone!
