Rage: A Love Story by Julie Anne Peters
Pub. Date: September 8, 2009
Publisher: Knopf Books for Young Readers
Johanna is steadfast, patient, reliable; the go-to girl, the one everyone can count on. But always being there for others can’t give Johanna everything she needs—it can’t give her Reeve Hartt.
Reeve is fierce, beautiful, wounded, elusive; a flame that draws Johanna’s fluttering moth. Johanna is determined to get her, against all advice, and to help her, against all reason. But love isn’t always reasonable, right?
In the precarious place where attraction and need collide, a teenager experiences the dark side of a first love, and struggles to find her way into a new light.
Hmm..I've never read any books with homosexual characters so this one would definitely be a different read for me. I think it's important to be accepting and tolerant of those who prefer same-sex relationships, though, so this novel could be enlightening. The cover is pretty - I love her eye shadow!
