Suppose you had just met the girl of your dreams–she’s smart, funny, cute as hell, and a really good ‘zine writer. She seems perfect for you except for one little thing: she’s gay and you’re NOT a girl. John has totally lost it for Marisol, a cool, cute, completely out teenage lesbian. Even though he knows she only digs girls, he can’t help but wish that Marisol was different. But when he goes about trying to change things, John comes to the painful realization that the only person he can really change is himself. A real whizz-banger of a book–one of my favorites of 1999.
