A wonderfully written and excellent portrayal of youth discovery and angst. A must read for any themed read for senior students on sexuality and a terrific insight for all of us. So wonderful to have a honest portrayal of a teenage girl with all the depth, breadth and chaos that so frequently happens. A tender and heart felt description of torn emotion, confusion and certainty all at the same time. At all times a positive depiction of same- sex attraction, experimentation and outcomes with an interesting twist as a small American town responds. Highly recommended.
