The Pants Project by Cat Clarke

Liv dreads starting middle school. Not because of the work, or the classes, or the other students. No, Liv doesn’t want to go because of the uniform: “Girls must wear a black, pleated, knee-length skirt.” Which wouldn’t be such a huge issue, except...Liv is not a girl. Liv is transgender, and, though they may look like a girl on the outside and be a girl on paper, Liv knows that they are a boy. And Liv knows that they feel awful and unlike themselves in a skirt.

Seeing Cinderella by Jenny Lundquist

What would you do if you discovered that you could read other people’s thoughts?

It’s not bad enough that Callie Anderson has to get glasses just before the start of middle school, but they are the ugliest glasses she has ever seen. Yet those huge, geeky lenses and fat black frames hide a secret. These glasses show Callie what other people are thinking. Maybe they will actually help her. And she can use all of the help she can get. She’s lost in math and Spanish classes. Her best friend seems to be drifting away. And her parents’ marriage is falling apart. But can Callie follow the eye doctor’s instructions and learn to use the glasses wisely?
