She Loves You, She Loves You Not - A Lesbian Teen Comes Out and Comes Of Age

"She Loves You, She Loves You Not" By Julie Anne Peters

Seventeen-year-old Alyssa thought she knew who she was. She had her family and her best friends and, most important, she had Sarah. Sarah, her girlfriend, with whom she dreamed about the day they could move far away and live out and proud and accepted for themselves, instead of having to hide their relationship.

Alyssa never thought she would have to make that move by herself. But disowned by her father and cut off from everyone she loves, she is forced to move hundreds of miles away to live with Carly, the biological mother she barely knows, in a town where everyone immediately dismisses her as Carly's girl. As Alyssa struggles to forget her past and come to terms with her future, will she be able to build a new life for herself and believe in love again? Or will she be forced to relive the mistakes that have cost her everything and everyone she cared about?

I'm late to the party here, but I really enjoyed this book. It was like a soap opera, and I mean that as a compliment. I also like that it had a character with a disability who was not sunny or inspiring.
