Beth was there when Laura arrived. She was the brain, the sparkle, the gay rebel voice of the sorority and, wonder of wonders, she chose Laura as her roommate. That was the way it began... the one up there at the pinnacle and the other, the lonely one, longing always to draw nearer and nearer. Suddenly, the distance between them closed and they were alone on an island of forbidden bliss. Beth was drawn to Laura, who loved her with a passion she had never experienced before. Will their love survive the pressures of secrecy and the fears of societal reprisal?
Like the unforgettable SPRING FIRE, here is an urgent young first novel of emotions running wild. Set against the backdrop of college sorority life, we watch as Laura and Beth are drawn to each other and then struggle to keep their love alive. Ann Bannon's courageous breakthrough novel was a hit in its day and still thrills lesbian readers everywhere!

This book, if it wasn't written by a man..a straight man..should have been. One of the main "lesbian" characters fell in love with a man....and asked her girlfriend if she couldn't have them both. Then chose the man over her "girlfriend." This is Not a book about lesbians.
'Odd Girl Out' kept me turning the pages to read more. It's not incredibly juicy, but it has that 'I'm in love and confused but trying to figure things out' air to it. The ending isn't what I hoped for, but it does leave the novel open for the other books in the Beebo Brinker series. Honestly, even though this novel was published in the 1950's, you couldn't tell the fifties from the millennium in Ann Bannon's style of writing. Great read.
This book was really great i don't normally read very much but when i find a book that i can't put down i know it's great. Anyways this is one of the best if have ever read i encourage anyone to read this really great book!!!!!
This is one of the best lesbian books I've ever read. It has such a good story that any lesbian I'm sure can relate to. I couldn't put the book down, I read it all in one sitting and was tempted to immediately pick it up again. You NEED this book!
