From The CriticsLynn Wright, a senior, is thrown for a loop when her best friend from childhood, seventeen-year-old Kit Dandridge, tells her a long-kept secret: She's a lesbian. Lynn, who had always envisioned double-dating with Kit, struggles to readjust her expectations—and her attitude—as she learns to help Kit come out to her less-than-enthused parents and deal with homophobic torment at school. The girls join a Gay/Straight Alliance at a neighboring school, and they learn to recognize and fight the gay bashing that occurs routinely in the hallways. A poignant examination of the bonds of friendship, Love Rules takes a gritty, realistic look at the trials of being a gay teenager. It's also a fast-paced read that races to a climactic conclusion.
