Academics have never been Sofie's strong point; she s too busy spending all of her free time with her boyfriend, Paul, the captain of her Surrey high school's soccer team. When her English teacher implements a new program that pairs her with straight-A student Clea, Sofie worries about how Paul will react to her hanging out with the only out lesbian at school. Sofie is as surprised as Paul at how close she and Clea quickly become.
When Sofie discovers that Clea is planning a road trip to check out some American colleges over the winter break, she invites herself along, causing more issues with Paul. But it's only after a college student asks if Sofie identifies as a "femme" lesbian that she starts to question her own sexuality and her relationship with both Clea and Paul.
If you don't know me, I'm always looking for non-erotic f/f books. Here's an example:
After first, I wasn't sure how I feel about it or what to expect. Sofie was so ... superficial. And I don't mean to judge, but people like that frustrate me. I was interested, but it wasn't clicking. I was really hoping something would pick up.
And it did... once Clea is introduced.
Being able to read as a young adult experiences the realization that she is attracted to someone of the same sex and the consequences that come from admitting it to those around her, it was both heart breaking and exciting. I enjoyed the romance aspect and how the characters change throughout the story. Even if it was totally cheesy.
I highly recommend this book. It has feels, romance, an obsessive use of the letter u in words that totally don't contain the letter u, and I adored it.
In addiction, have this rant
How dare someone think they can choose whether or not to accept someone for their sexuality. What gives you that right to make such judgments?
As for myself, as long as nobody tries to hit on my husband, I'm all good. Because THAT is the only time any sort of sexuality messes with my marriage ... And I WILL cut a bitch.
