The Difference Between You and Me by Madeleine George
Jesse is a sophmore, the founder (and only member) of The National Organization to Liberate All Weirdos. She wears big green fisherman's boots.
Emily wears sweaters with faux pearl buttons. She's vice president of the student council. She has a boyfriend.
But when it's just the two of them, they rock each other's worlds.
"Kissing Emily is literally the best thing Jesse has ever done. In her life. There is no feeling more right or perfect"
Jesse wants them to come out, but Emily feels she has too much to lose... and when they end up on opposite sides of a heated school conflict, they each have to decide...
What's more important: what you believe in, or the one you love?
