She had the swagger of a girl. She blushed like a boy. She had a girl’s toughness. She has a boy’s gentleness.
She was as meaty as a girl. She was as graceful as a boy. She was as brave and handsome and rough as a girl. She was as pretty and delicate and dainty as a boy.
She turned boys’ heads like a girl. She turned girls’ heads like a boy.
She made love like a boy. She made love like a girl. She was so boyish it was girlish, so girlish it was boyish, she made me want to rove the world writing our names on every tree. I had simply never found someone so right. Sometimes this shocked me so much that I was unable to speak. Ali Smith, Girl Meets Boy: The Myth of Iphis (Canongate Myths)
