Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspiring I have to say it took me awhile to read this book because of school, and I'm glad it did. I got to take it all in and think about all the situations. I've noticed with the two books of Julie Anne's that I've read have explored the different sexuality out there now-a-days and I'm glad that she is. Many of My friends are bi and or gay and I love them more because they feel comforateble enough with me and themselves to let me and the people they care about more. Many People hate talking about these topic and Julie Anne just sticks them out there and shows/tells you what happens to the people who are slightly different from other. People do get critized and hurt because of who they are and that is a crime in itself. I hope one day this will not be a problem to society, and that people will be able to be open until then i enjoy reading books like Julies so I can hope one day we will beable to talk and write about these situations as open as she does

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Alright, So I read this book just the other day, and it's by far one of her best books ever. Julie Anne Peters is a talented Author from Define Normal to Keeping you a secret to Far From Xanadu. She has a way to make the reader relate to what's in her novels. This book is not only for young readers but for everyone who has ever fallen in love with somebody they just couldn't have. This book is a must-read. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I have.
