Gooseberry "B’s struggle to find home and acceptance will have readers rooting for them and Gooseberry the dog. A must-purchase realistic fiction title for all middle grade collections." - School Library Journal, STARRED Review! 

"Gow’s latest middle-grade novel continues delving into the intersection of transgender or nonbinary identities with autistic and ADHD neurodivergence, and while B thinks no one would be able to understand their brain, autistic readers especially will find much that is both relatable and validating. A story of living authentically, finding family, and surviving bullying, microaggressions, and middle school." - Booklist, STARRED Review! 


Robin Gow is a trans poet and author from rural Pennsylvania. They are the author of several poetry books, an essay collection, the middle grade verse novel Dear Mothman, and the young adult verse novel A Million Quiet Revolutions
