Description

Because of a moment of indiscretion, Hope's parents send her to New York to spend the summer with her hipster sister while they travel to Thailand. Miserable, Hope ends up meeting Nat, and developing a powerful crush. The only problem is that Nat is a girl. Hope is pretty sure she isn't gay. Or is she? Struggling with new feelings, fitting in and a strange city far from home, Hope finds that love—and acceptance—comes in many different forms.

Editorial Reviews

"Absolutely charming...Mac infuses so much passion and heart into...this witty, entertaining glimpse into one kid’s summer of discovering that 'life is really hard if you’re a person who's alive.'"

— Gerogia Straight

"[A] strong story of love and sexual identity, rooted in well-drawn characters and well-imagined situations."

— Quill & Quire

"A bright, lovely novel...well thought out."

— Hi-Rise

“I was impressed by this book and how it handled a sensitive and potentially awkward situation.”

— Resource Links

"An emotionally complex story. Communal living, drug addiction, and, of course, the lesbian content will all be sure-fire discussion points, and these same elements, especially the hot romance, make this an intriguing book for fluent and struggling readers alike."

— The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"This book achieves the goal of providing a provocative storyline with high teen appeal...Recommended."

— CM Magazine
