Alex Gino, the Lambda Literary Award-winning author of George, is back with another sensitive tale based on increasingly relevant social justice issues.

Jilly thinks shes figured out how life works. But when her sister, Emma, is born deaf, she realizes how much she still has to learn. The world is going to treat Jilly, who is white and hearing, differently from Emma, just as it will treat them both differently from their Black cousins.A big fantasy reader, Jilly makes a connection online with another fantasy fan, Derek, who is a Deaf, Black ASL user. She goes to Derek for help with Emma but doesnt always know the best way or time to ask for it.As she and Derek meet in person, have some really fun conversations, and become friends, Jilly makes some mistakes . . . but comes to understand that its up to her, not Derek to figure out how to do better next time -- especially when she wants to be there for Derek the most.Within a world where kids like Derek and Emma arent assured the same freedom or safety as kids like Jilly, Jilly is starting to learn all the things she doesnt know--and by doing that, shes also working to discover how to support her family and her friends.With You Dont Know Everything, Jilly P!, award-winning author Alex Gino uses their trademark humor, heart, and humanity to show readers how being open to difference can make you a better person, and how being open to change can make you change in the best possible ways.
