Hard Love

by Ellen Wittlinger

In Ellen's words: "John and Marisol form an unlikely friendship based on zines, alienation and dreams of escape. John knows from the outset that Marisol is a lesbian, but she penetrates his loneliness and he falls for her anyway."

This book won a gazillion awards (you'll have to check out Ellen's website for the full list!)

Here's another cover - it's fun sometimes to see how different the same book cover can be in different editions.

I really enjoyed this book. There are quite a few "gay people fall for straight people" but very little "straight person falls for gay person" books, so it was nice to see a different edge to things. And I always enjoy the aspect of it that revolves around writing.
