‘Simi St. James, Superhero!’ By tara DeZao

Simi is a story about a first-grade girl who is struggling to find her place among her peers. Her passions, interests and clothing lie outside of the gender norms for a girl of her age. She loves Halloween because she can be anything she wants without feeling different. Her costume leads her to find the thing she desperately wants, someone who shares her interests and accepts her for who she is.
