From the Publisher
In this fresh, poignant novel (originally published under the title
Far From Xanadu), Mike is struggling to come to terms with
her father''s suicide and her mother''s detachment from the family.
Mike (real name: Mary Elizabeth) is gay and likes to pump iron,
play softball, and fix plumbing. When a glamorous new girl, Xanadu,
arrives in Mike''s small Kansas town, Mike falls in love at first
sight. Xanadu is everything Mike is not -- cool, confident,
feminine, sexy.... straight.
Julie Anne Peters has written a heartbreaking yet ultimately
hopeful novel that will speak to anyone who has ever fallen in love
with someone who can''t love them back.
