This groundbreaking book, first published in 1982, is the
story of two teenage girls whose friendship blossoms into love and who, despite
pressures from family and school that threaten their relationship, promise to
be true to each other and their feelings.
Of the author and the book, the Margaret A. Edwards Award
committee said, “Nancy Garden has the distinction of being the first author for
young adults to create a lesbian love story with a positive ending. Using a
fluid, readable style, Garden opens a window through which readers can find courage
to be true to themselves.”
Liza puts aside her feelings for Annie after the disaster at
school, but eventually she allows love to triumph over the ignorance of people.
