Private high school senior Josephine Jenkins (JJ) is a closet poet and talented writer suffering from stage fright. JJ has also committed the ultimate lesbian faux pas: she’s fallen in love with a straight girl—Kendal McCarthy. Kendal is the uber-popular campus beauty queen and cheerleader. But she is still searching for that elusive high school experience that will help her make sense of herself before she leaves for college. When JJ and Kendal’s paths cross, their lives become interesting in ways that neither of them ever imagined. Filled with unique and witty banter courtesy of Queenie McBride—JJ’s overprivileged confidant—this tale of innocent love exposes the reality of what can happen when two polar opposites collide in a most unexpected way, all through the poetry of Emily Dickinson. Primarily offering insight into the social aspects of being "different," both straight and LGBT readers will enjoy this exploration of the romantic but sometimes confusing love that lesbian teens discover yet handle in different ways.
