Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Abbey Brooks has recovered from her end-of-freshman-year heartbreak and has vowed that this year, her sophomore year at Gila High, will be different in every way. Her to-do list: get her driver’s license, come out to her mom, get (and keep) a girlfriend, and survive another year of basketball. As always, though, nothing goes according to plan. Who will be there for her as her plans start to unravel? Who will bring her back to life after another round of heartache and betrayal? These remain a mystery—even to Abbey.

But one thing is for sure, she’s not confused about who she is. And that is going to make all the difference.

My Review:
Annameekee hesik and bold strokes books has delivered another winner. I brought the first book when I got approved for this book and I thought it was absolutely terrific. This one is terrific also, this author knows of what she writes and it shows through her writing. I love Abbey and all the ups and downs of her high school and personal life. I can’t wait for junior and senior year. Who knows, maybe we will even get to college down the road. But as usual, Bold Storke Books delivers only high caliber authors and meaty reads. Thanks to both of them and the author for a job well done.

While this book is a Young Adult book with a target audience of high school age lesbians, it is very relatable for all genders, orientations and ages. There is straight and bi drama in the plot too. It is a fine coming of age book. Parents for early out teens might learn a thing or 2 about what their kids are dealing with as they come to terms with who they are in a world that might not always understand or accept them.
My Rating:
