Male Protagonists by Female Authors

I knew it was unusual for a female to write a book in the first person as a male, but I didn’t realize how very rare it was until I did a little research recently. Here is what turned up:

Gone Girl is 1/2 male narrator and 1/2 female. The Room is about a six year old boy. Fountain Head is in the third person. Frankenstein is in the first person though. I am really surprised by what my search turned up and thought I would share this.
