Surrounded by Books

I read historical fiction, mystery, foodie memoir, and well-crafted YA (sometimes other genres).


Pink - Lili Wilkinson I really liked this. Was assigned to read it for the class discussion about GLBTQ literature in my YA genre class.What I liked best is that it's a book about a teenager who's a lesbian, and she's already come out. Now she has to navigate all kinds of universal teenage stuff about image and cliques...I was impressed, also, that the book resisted pigeonholing roles for its characters.
