    It's a week before her freshman year when Lauren Conners is thinking, for what feels like the billionth time, of breaking up with her boyfriend of the past couple of years. In a seeming answer to her fervent prayers for guidance she looks up into the hypnotic eyes of the quiet little Washington town's exotic, dark, and alluring new addition.The two fall immediately for one another when their eyes meet. But Lauren can't be sure - is this love at first sight? An answer from God to her prayer for guidance? Or is this simply lust as she wrestles with newborn passions and desires for the beautiful creature that has entered her life?The relationship is fraught with other issues on top of the poor young ballerina's internal and spiritual uncertainty: the two attend the best school in the area, a private school, Immaculate Conception, a Catholic school Lauren has attended since she was in sixth grade and where she has a reputation as a pious, studious, bright, Good Girl. So ... what's the problem here? Oh, her newfound love (or is it lust?) is a girl.The author has done a fabulous job with each individual character. both girls and parents have great sense of humors. Both parents are very laid back and easy going and suport both their children as they embark on their journey to see if what they have is real.Sally is a young freshman who saw Lauren and thought it was love at first sight. Lauren feels a connection as well. Even though Lauren isn't sure about her sexuality, she embraces her feelings towards Sally. Puppy love is so sweet, isn't it? I call it puppy love because we are talking about 2 14 year old kids. Do they even know what real love is all about. Lauren questions whether or not she's only lusting after Sally due to her looks and not feeling that same love in return.Sally has the best sense of humor and I love the way she makes everyone laugh.Lauren is a sweet freshman who is having difficulty trying to figure out why she does not feel more toward her boyfriend then just friendship. She is confused. Until she meets Sally. Sally also has a great sense of humor. You will see this throughout the book. They are both so sweet, I would ben honored to have them as my own daughters.As a parent with a daughter that was younger than these two are and faced with the same situation, I thought I was a good candidate to read and rate this book.Now back to the additional characters. You have both parents, who have been very supportive of the girls new found love. I can relate with these parents, because I have an open communication type relationship with my daughter and she knows she can come to me for anything. I did love these characters, because they were very laid back and easy going. Both loving their daughters very much and the huge key here is the support. They were also very encouraging and helping the girls deal with their sexuality. i would be happy to call them as friends if it were my daughter in this situation.I rated this book 3 stars. The book was well written, great format. Its basically the day and the life of 2 teenage girls trying to figure out who they are. There wasn't really any excitement to this book, just normal teenage stuff. I do get what the author was trying to accomplish here, but I would have liked to see more of a story line versus just every day life.

    The story is exactly as described in the description. The two high school freshmen fall in love at first sight, and the book is about them questioning whether it's really love or if it's just lust and the complications they experience at things like a school dance due to being homosexual.One of the things I liked the most about it was that most of the problems between the girls stemmed not from things like lusting after others or any of the other typical romance novel clichés, instead 99% of their problems stemmed from simply misunderstanding what the other meant. It reminded me of a romantic comedy, which, as far as I know, doesn't tend to be a WRITTEN genre.There are things about it that may make it wrong for some people: Both sets of parents are rather open-minded even where their children's sex lives are concerned, and the girls are more mature acting than many, but by no means all, real world 14-year-olds. And a little bit of suspension of disbelief might be necessary to deal with just how quickly they fall in love -- but I think this is handled well since the girls themselves question it.All in all, a very good book, and I eagerly await book two.

    This book is good and long for a reason gives you great an avid detail of the character's relationship which is Salencia and Lauren who meet randomly at a park that sparks lust instantly I can't go into to much detail because their is so much in this book to give away. I did enjoy their building of love though that grows even with accepting God in their life. Yes, it is a challenge in some parts to read on but if you are wanting a long good love story with two young females this is it especially with both sides of parents accepting and family members. In reality we all wish this, I give Jaye for showing us young love can happen even if they aren't your friend first just a love to come together in the end of a happy ending.

    It reminds me of the "I Found My Heart in San Francisco" series.Nice that the parents are completely supportive. That gives the space to the girls and their problems without additional drama from the sidelines.I liked the humor very much. The quipping kept me smiling on. As an atheist I don't shed a tear about the religion induced problems Lauren has. But for some Christians it could be "enlightening".

    Summary the story of Lauren who instantly falls head over heels in love with Sally. Lauren struggles with her new found emotions towards Sally - her highly religious schooling causing her to question whether this is the real thing or just lust.First of all, I had a very hard time trying to figure out the age of the girls. The way they spoke and there actions were very inconsistent. One moment behaving as if they were 12, the next they act like they are in their 20s. An example, when Lauren goes to speak with her current boyfriend, she tells him that their relationship hasn't felt right to her for the past year and that all she knows is she is not in love with him. That's all good, but then we learn that Lauren is 14. Yep, 14. I also had an issue with the extent of the religious talk. Based on Lauren's religious background, she is concerned with how God will view her relationship if said relationship is based on love or lust. She never once seems concerned about the fact that it's a gay relationship. Guess God is okay with that. I'm all about the gay love, but these girls where 14 and the over the top uber insta-love was just too much for me. Within like an hour of meeting had already professed their love for one another. Nope, couldn't do it. Would love to read about some girls hooking up, but not when they are 14...makes me feel icky.
