Finished Georgia Peaches and Other Forbidden Fruit by Jaye Robin Brown. I received a copy for review.
It’s her senior year and Jo–an incredibly out lesbian–is starting over in a new place. A small town. With her dad and new stepmom. Her dad (a preacher) asks her to maybe try being a little less openly gay (read: totally closeted) and, in exchange, she can go on her dream vacation after graduation. Her new step-grandma is not exactly down with the gays. So Joanna (as she is now called) does her best. But then, of course, she meets this girl.
You guys, this book would have been my everything if I had read it in high school and it’s kind of my everything now. It’s got religious people who don’t suck, great friends and family and the best love story ever.
No words will do it justice.
