When he gets into a fight after pushing his way into a boys-only game, the adults' solution leaves him feeling trapped in someone else's identity...
Jasmine can’t stop acting out. Frustrated both with bullying at school and being seen as a tomboy other boys don’t want to play with, the plucky 10-year-old trans kid’s insistence that he is who he is keeps falling on deaf ears. And when disrupting the other boys’ no-girls-allowed hangout gets him sent to the principal’s office, his mom decides its time to force him to accept that he is a girl.
Can Jasmine convince his parents that he’s every bit as much of a boy as his brother before he does something so bad he can’t take it back?
