Blurb: Bro Sumner loves his girlfriend, Lacey Adair, who underneath her pretty dress is in fact a boy, and she loves him right back. They are an exclusive item in high school, but they face some dangerous opposition, including a bullying fellow jock on Bro’s football team and Lacey’s violent alcoholic father. Lacey gets some martial arts training from an ally, and both she and Bro end up having to use fists to defend themselves. Still, their high school years have been mostly happy. Their differing plans for the future after graduation, however, seem to separate them by thousands of miles.
A compromise with the help of relatives and friends means Bro and Lacey will go to school only an hour apart, but they still miss each other. It’s not long before they make new friendships and discover new romantic possibilities. Temptations, jealousies, distance, and expanding horizons could sever their relationship forever unless they can keep their dream of a life together alive in their hearts.
Review: This was a pretty good book. I felt that I would have appreciated it more if I was younger, however it was well written. I loved the fact that even though Lance/Lacy’s father was a mean drunk, that he got help and was trying to make up for everything he had done. Even though there were many who were homo-phobic there was even more acceptance. They went through many of the same problems others go through the only difference is they succeeded.
