I am heterosexual female and found some parts of this book at best stereotypical and probably that’s why I was surprised to read on the books last page that author is homosexual.(I wanted to see the animated Disney musical, which I guess just proved that I really was the gay boy that I’d been thinking all along that I was. Now that I knew for a fact that Terese was a LESBIAN (in capital letters), she didn’t look so much like one anymore. Sure, she had cropped blond hair and, frankly, broader shoulders than me. But she also had these great cheekbones and these really pretty baby blue eyes.) Characters are bland, there is no plot and writing is average.
