A Christmas Princess

To be a girl trapped in a boy’s body is not easy, not even at Christmas.

27822482A time of tinsel, twinkling lights and beautiful wrappings shouldn’t be laced with dread and anxiety, but for Danny it is. He likes colours, glitter, and sparkles. He wants to have shiny handbags and pretty dresses. But Dad says he can’t because Danny is a boy. The problem is he doesn’t want to be a boy. Not even on Christmas. But isn’t Christmas the time of year when wishes do come true?
