Annabel (2010) Winter, Kathleen

In Labrador, a child is born: a baby who appears to be neither fully boy or fully girl, but both at once. Though the child is raised as male within the hyper-masculine hunting society of his father, his shadow-self, a girl he thinks of as “Annabel,” is never entirely extinguished.

Alex as Well (2016) Brugman, Alyssa

Alex is ready for things to change, in a big way. Everyone seems to think she’s a boy, but for Alex the whole boy/girl thing isn’t as simple as either/or, and when she decides girl is closer to the truth, no one knows how to react, least of all her parents.
