Well, we know the current Yoncy is a girl.

The question was the earlier designation of "he" a mistake or a plot twist in the making?

“Who are you?”

“I’m your Aunt Tona.”

“I don’t have an aunt.”

“You do now. And so does Yancy here.”

“She’s Yoncy.”

“Yeah, whatever. Come on.”

I have the e-book, hence the nice copy paste :D
I noticed, in Salvations Reach, that they have the same thing, where one of the women taking care of Yoncy doesnt know if its a boy or a girl and gets corrected (being told its a girl) though it is during a firefight so she's excused :D

Sem'ael Elear I have she's as well, so I always just thought Yoncy was a girl

Giant Fossil Penguin I wouldn't be surprised if a gremlin got into the works in the earlier editions proofing/print-run, changing a he to a she. It is always possible that this could be a Publisher's/Printer's cock-up, rather than an Author getting it wrong. This seems the more likely if later editions are different; something so small could be missed for quite a while.
