By Beth Goobie
Dylan's 16 and a closeted lesbian. She creates a controversial book display at school that gets censored. When she finally comes out (after kissing another girl at a dance) her family and friends are amazing - they accept and love her unconditionally. She even gets a girlfriend!
Check out this very heartening article on the publisher's website, where Beth explains some background on her interviews with Teens before writing "Hello, Groin." She also addresses her decision to make the reaction (by family, friends and society as a whole) to Dylan's being a lesbian be upbeat and very pro-gay.
