High school junior Leila has
made it most of the way through Armstead Academy without having a crush on
anyone, which is something of a relief. Her Persian heritage already makes her
different from her classmates; if word got out that she liked girls, life would

But when a sophisticated,

be, and many are keeping fascinating secrets of their own. Download and start listening now!
