"My Year Zero by Rachel Gold, in a sentence, is a YA all-girl love triangle with a Jewish lesbian MC, a bi-girl love interest, and a very satisfyingly happy ending full of love and tenderness.

"This is my third book by Rachel Gold and I definitely think it would be apt to describe her as the LGBT John Green. I'd love to simply say "the lesbian John Green", but she really does have all the letters in her fiction! If you're new to Rachel G..." Read more of this review »

“Claire says she used to think ordinary life was boring before I came out to her, but now she realizes that every ordinary moment has extraordinary worlds contained within it.”

“It’s not brave to be who you are,” Ella told her. “It’s necessary.”
Rachel Gold, Just Girls

“I think maybe at some level it would be good if feminism was about raising up women but also femininity, no matter where it is. Sometimes it’s the delicate and the weak and the yielding aspects of life that are the most important.”

Good to know! This is a cool place. I mostly don't rate books I didn't enjoy -- it's hard for me to give authors low marks. I think my systems is: 5=loved it, 4=loved it, but ..., 3=some flaws, 2=significant flaws. But right now I'm mostly inputting all my 5-star books.
