SummarySpencer Harris is looking for a fresh start at his new school after being bullied and harassed out of his old one for being transgender. The new school seems to be like it could be a fit. The students seem more accepting. He is making friends easily and is quickly able to join the boys’ soccer team. The only issue is that no one knows Spencer is transgender at his new school. When a discriminatory law causes the soccer coach to bench Spencer after seeing his birth certificate, Spencer has to make a decision: stay on the sidelines or fight for his right to play.
