Redwood and Ponytail
What a sensitive, gently thought out, free-verse novel. If the book looks too big for you, don't be fooled. It isn't. The author tells the story changing narrators so you know what they are thinking. School can be awkward school and it is hard when your parents put pressure on you to be like them. Whether you are a boy or a girl, you'll like this book because the relationship that builds between these two girls is confusing, like any "like" relationship can be. Anyone can relate to the characters and what it is like to be trying to "be cool" and "accept yourself" at the same time.
