Forgive Me If I've Told You This Before - Faith, Politics and Young Lesbian Love

Forgive Me If I've Told You This Before by Karelia Stetz-Waters

The shy daughter of an Estonian immigrant, Triinu Hoffman has one hope for high school: that the bullies who tormented her in junior high won’t find her in the crowded hallways of her new school. When she accidentally stabs a lecherous youth minister with a Bic pen and gets branded a lezzie Satanist, she realizes there is no way she is going to escape their torment. Moreover, Triinu has started noticing a beautiful girl dressed in all black, and she begins to think there may be something to the accusations of lesbianism.

Set against the backdrop of Ballot Measure 9, the most violent anti-gay political campaign of the 1990s, Forgive Me If I’ve Told You This Before explores the intersection of faith, politics, and young love.
