The Chinese Garden

By Rosemary Manning

When her friend Margaret is caught with another girl, Rachel's ensnared in the administration's net. In the face of Rachel's growing understanding of her own sexual identity, she realizes that if she doesn't betray her friend, she'll suffer the same fate. But how can she?
