I’ve been following a link trail all across the interenet today, looking at blurbs for Lesbian Young Adult books and found a couple that even have me interested in reading them.
The first is: Annie on my Mind
This is the story of two young girls, each an outcast in her own school circles who meet each other at a museum and become first, friends, and later lovers.
While they have different histories and goals in life, the two girls do share a close friendship that quickly grows into love. Liza’s school is struggling to remain open and she finds herself having to defend a student who planned a poorly conceived program: ear piercing in the school basement. This results in a three-day school suspension for Liza and helps to bring Liza and Annie closer together as they both deal with the struggles encountered by many high school students.
The second book that caught my interest is: Kissing Kate
Kate was Lissa’s best friend. they’ve shared everything for four years. Then one night at a drunken party, Kate leaned in to kiss Lissa, and Lissa kissed her back. And now Kate is pretending Lissa doesn’t exist. Confused and alone, Lissa’s left questioning everything she thought she knew about herself, and about life. but with the help of a free-spirit new friend, Lissa’s beginning to find the strength to realize that sometimes falling in love with the wrong person is the only way to find your footing.
Both of these stories sound intriguing and have gone onto my TBB list.
