Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This groundbreaking book, first published in 1982, is the story of two teenage girls whose friendship blossoms into love and who, despite pressures from family and school that threaten their relationship, promise to be true to each other and their feelings.

 

Of the author and the book, the Margaret A. Edwards Award committee said, “Nancy Garden has the distinction of being the first author for young adults to create a lesbian love story with a positive ending. Using a fluid, readable style, Garden opens a window through which readers can find courage to be true to themselves.”

 

The 25th Anniversary Edition features a full-length interview with the author by Kathleen T. Horning, Director of the Cooperative Childrens Book Center. Ms. Garden answers such revealing questions as how she knew she was gay, why she wrote the book, censorship, and the books impact on readers – then and now.

Nancy Garden, recipient of the Margaret A. Edwards Award, is the author of the picture book Mollys Family (with pictures by Sharon Wooding) and many novels, including The Year They Burned the Books. She and her partner divide their time between small towns in Massachusetts and Maine.

"The story of two young women who love each other. It is an honest portrayal of their love with an ending that is in keeping with, and worthy of, the rest of the book."—The Baltimore Sun

"Departs from the fact-packed preachiness of the problem novel to become instead a compelling story of two real and intriguing women. There have been many books for teenagers, fiction and nonfiction, that give lots of useful and accurate information about homosexuality; here's one that tells what it feels like, one that has, finally, romance."—School Library Journal
