I Am a Girl

Joppe is a pretty thirteen-year-old girl who was born a boy. She fancies Brian. But what Brian doesn't know, is that she is actually a boy. Joppe and her girlfriends are sure: she simply is a girl. A girl who is mistakenly caught in the body of a boy. But then, how do you ask a boy like Brian if he wants to be your boyfriend? Will he understand? And what would we the right time to tell him?
