Review quote

"A delightful, perceptive book about the dichotomy of teenage friendship and the struggle for individual identity" "All the drama, humor, and awkwardness of best-friend-maybe-love-angst relationships, told from three points of view. Ron K rocks!" -Book Sense, Jeffiver Laughran, Books Inc., San Francisco, CA "Koertge returns with memorable, likable characters, spot-on dialogue that is both humorous and insightful, and a subtle exploration of prejudices and issues that will resonate with teens . . . A perceptive book about teenage friendship and the struggle for individual identity . . . Buy several copies."--Booklist (starred review)

Our customer reviews

Graduation offers the promise of the future, but that same future offers the promise of uncertainty and fear. Three friends are about to graduate. They have plans. There are the plans made with the support and dreams of their families. There is the secret plan known only to the three of them, of an escape to California. And then, there are the separate plans, sometimes made privately, even subconsciously. Boy - Larry is smart, but he\'s also gay. His friends understand, but others - not so much. Struggling to be sure he really is what he is takes up most of Larry\'s time and effort. Maybe California would answer his questions. Maybe not ... Girl - Teresa is a straight student, but she struggles with issues from the past. She\'s never totally understood why her mother left her. Doesn\'t a girl need a mother? Her father is too busy with his \"Tiny Town\" hobby project in the basement to really understand what she needs. Her friends understand her pain. Maybe California would offer her a fresh start. Maybe not ... Boy - Elliot is going to play ball for U of I. It\'s his father\'s dream. Elliot\'s dream is being a butcher in his father\'s store. Since he is not the student that his friends are, the academic side of college scares Elliot. Maybe going to California would take U of I out of the picture. Maybe not ... Koertge tells his story from alternating viewpoints, allowing readers to see into the minds and fears of the trio. The struggle to understand one\'s life in the past, present, and future is reflected in Larry, Teresa, and Elliot. There is something for everyone in BOY GIRL more
