This book was so much better than 'Annie..' I loved the ending, becuase it did not end stupid or tragically. The author put less 'between the lines' stuff and more details. Maybe that is how gay fiction changed over the years. I wonder if there is a sequil?
This was the first book of Nancy Garden's I read and it was spell binding. I was completely engulfed from the first minute. It opened my eyes and brought about a profound change in my thinking. Jan and Kerry, the two young girls who fall in love, face up to the horrible cruelty of the kids in their school and, in the end, decide that as long as they have one another they can face any future. I was taken completely by this book. Nancy Garden has penned a masterpiece. It allows the reader to see what it is like to be young and gay and the fear of coming out to the world, your families and all those you encounter.
This book was great! I totally loved it. Books like this one are just so helpful and understanding. I could really relate to the characters and how they felt. It made me feel that it was OK to be... um, weeelll... you probably have an idea about what I was about to say, right? But, of course, this is coming from an almost 14 year old. What do I know about things being right or wrong? : )
This is the best book I have ever read dealing with GBLT issues. I loved it so much! I also loved Annie on My Mind, but this is my favorite! I can't thank Nancy Garden enough for writing them!!!
I also agree that it wasnt quite as good as annie on my mind but it was really a great book overall i think more people should read this book.
It was not as great as Annie on my Mind but it was very good. I reccomend this book to anyone who can relate to this or someone who likes to read. I really enjoyed reading it.
