really liked it

This book was really interesting. It was about two high school students who have wildly different points of view on just about everything and somehow still find a connection with each other. Jesse, who is a quirky self expressive lesbian falls in love with Emily who is president of student council and her reputation means everything to her. Emily has a boyfriend of over a year and refuses to be seen in public with Jesse, but still meets her every Tuesday during her break at work. Throughout the book you learn what the two girls are willing to sacrifice, whether it is for each other or for the causes they believe in. In some parts of the book I had trouble relating to either one of the characters because I would neither want to sacrifice everything for another person or everything for one specific cause. I would want to make a compromise instead.

Taylor It sounds like a really good book!

Emily very different, but good!

message 5: by Ivy (new)

Ivy Do you think I would like this book? I heard Ms. Littlefield talk about it and wasn't sure by the description...?

Emily It's good! As long as you are comfortable with reading about the girls sexuality, because a lot of the book is about the two of them trying to make their relationship work.
