When seventeen-year-old Ingrid Harper realizes she may not have the talent to pursue a scholarship for the most prestigious art school in Australia, she turns to pink hair dye as a distraction.
Her new hair captures the attention of a fellow art student, Kat, who introduces Ingrid to the LGBT clubbing scene, and although Ingrid enjoys partying with her new friend, she becomes caught up in confusion about her sexuality. Her fear is overwhelming—she can’t think about anything else.
Until her best friend, Summer, reveals that she is pregnant.
As her best friend faces the realities of being pregnant at seventeen, Ingrid is shown the true definition of courage. It motivates her to come out about her sexuality—she likes girls. Only girls. Now she just has to work out what that means for the other areas of her life.

Sweethearts is the first book I've read from this author and also my very first f/f read. I absolutely loved it! You have a group of high school teenagers who are learning to cope with and deal with life changing decisions. Those issues are what made these characters relatable and interesting. I enjoyed all of the characters; Ingrid, Summer, Jackson, Kat, Leon and Amber. I love that these characters made mistakes and had flaws but they did the best they could in the situations they were in. The ending was sweet and the story and friendships came full circle. I definitely look forward to reading more books from this author.
