This book is beautiful. The illustrations are gorgeous, and the story is much-needed. (I'm white, so I can't speak to the representation of two-spirit people, but the author is a two-spirit Lakota person.) The main character, Peyton, is struggling, because she feels like she doesn't fit the gender expectations of her. Her family, recognizing this struggle, all come together to prepare a gift to show Peyton that they accept her and teach her about what being two-spirit means. Highly recommended, ...more

I wanted to like this book more than I did.

A Native American kid loves to dance doesn't want to wear girls'/women's regalia anymore.

She doesn't necessarily want different pronouns -- which is totally valid, but which can make the story feel a little confusing ... with the grandmother talking about her as likely having a Two-Spirit path but still using "she" pronouns for her.
