Resource Description

Seventeen-year-old Molly has a complicated life: a twin sister starting a new relationship, lesbian moms who are to be married, and twenty-six crushes that haven’t developed into anything serious. When Molly’s twin Cassie develops a relationship with Mina, Cassie worries about their own relationship waning at the same time as she worries about how to choose between two boys: a cute, hipster one or a nerdy, more loving one. This contemporary novel for grades 10-12 deals with common teen issues of identity, sexual orientation, acceptance, self-confidence, coming-of-age, and relationships, and is suitable for literature circles on social justice or SOGi and for individual novel study.
