Melissa has kissed a girl, and it has changed her life.
And no, not in the sappy, naughty way that pop singers sing about.
This kiss has exploded like a bomb, shattering all she thought she knew—about her mother, about her best friend, about herself. Now sixteen-year-old Melissa has become a target for harassment and violence in a school where not all students are willing to accept her sexuality. And when she falls in love, she falls deeper into the conflict.
A typical shy girl, a straight-A student, and a perfectionist for the sake of her mom, Melissa now has to decide how she wants to live her life. Hidden? Quiet?
Or will she challenge the entire school system that has provided her with absolutely no protection from intolerance and hate?
