    "Just look at the cover and try to resist the temptation of reading it. Well, that is impossible. Even if you don't care about lesbian romances, the cover can still captivate and intrigue you so much that you'd be interested to find out exactly what happens in this book. Overall, this is not the author's best work but it's still a decent read which will make you warm inside. "

    "This is a really touching story about a girl who has been told all her life that something is wrong even though she feels the opposite deep down inside. It is a great story for anyone who is closeted and looking to read about the journey others have taken to share themselves fully with the people around them. Give this book a shot if you have the time."
