Lynne Pierce - May 2011: Finally, the life that evolves in a school is extremely complex in its relationships and subtleness. Anyone who thinks there are easy solutions to any of these situations has failed to grasp what is going on. Ann Roberts has created a book that could be dismissed as a romance that takes place in a school, but there is a lot more going on in this story.
Anna Furtado - October, 2010: Topics such as homophobia, inside and outside the lesbian community, as well as bullying, teen cutters, and the universal truth that we all bring some baggage from our childhood into our adult lives are addressed in this story and make it worth reading. The story ends with a bit of a cliffhanger, which may be the stuff of a continuation of the tale -- a rather intriguing thought. Besides, not all the villains are completely villainous, an appealing premise on its own. The theme of healing inner demons and becoming more comfortable in one's own skin is recurrent in this tale and makes it a worthwhile read.
