Review

Lucy is growing up - making friends, going to school and trying to fit in. But when her friends start crushing on Zac Efron, she starts to worry that she has posters of Emma Watson and Cheryl Cole on her walls, and doesn't fancy any boys at school.

Finally, Lucy admits to herself that she isn't being super-picky - she's gay, and she shouldn't be ignoring the feelings she has for other girls. But even with a super supportive friend group and lovely parents, it's still hard to say who she really is.

A real-life memoir about Lucy's life as a young person coming to terms with her sexuality and her 'coming out', as well as her first relationship with girlfriend Kaelyn, this is a positive and upbeat read about being comfortable in your own skin that will inspire any young person. It is particularly accessible for younger teens.
