Liv is a bit worried about going into middle school. Liv's best friend will be there too so it won't be horrible. Except for the school uniforms. There is a strict dress code. Both boys and girls wear shirts, ties and sweaters. So far, so good. But all the girls have to wear skirts. This doesn't sit well with Liv. Liv hates skirts and doesn't want to wear one. Liv is actually transgender and dreads being stuck in a skirt every day. Liv tries everything to get out of wearing the uncomfortable skirt every day. Add to that the class mean girl has targeted Liv for her abuse. Things are just not looking great for Liv in the first month in the school.
