This book was really cute. I really liked seeing Battle and Nicola's relationship develop. The only thing that detracted from my enjoyment of this book is that Nicola seemed to think that she was probably bi/still figuring it out but her friends kept pushing the lesbian label on her. ( )

Frothy and lightweight, but sweet. ( )

There weren't really a lot of GLBTQ YA books when I was growing up, so this was one of the first I actually read, given to me by my then girlfriend. It's a really solid book, with a very real feel to it. ( )

Nicola Lancaster is spending her summer at the Siegel Institute, a hothouse of smart, intense teenagers. She soon falls in with Katrina (Manic Computer Chick), Isaac (Nice-Guy-Despite-Himself), Kevin (Inarticulate Composer) . . . and Battle, a beautiful blond dancer. The two become friends--and then, startlingly, more than friends. What do you do when you think you're attracted to guys, and then you meet a girl who steals your heart? A trailblazing debut, reissued with an introduction by acclaimed author David Levithan, and copious back matter, including three graphic novel stories by Sara Ryan (and artists Steve Leiber, Dylan Meconis, and Natalie Nourigat) about the characters.
