Our customer reviews

Julie Ann Peters has already distinguished herself as a master at writing full-length novels dealing with GLBQT issues. With GRL2GRL, she establishes that she's also good at writing short stories with great characters and in-depth storylines. The book includes ten short stories, all dealing with girls and their feelings of love, loneliness, passion, and betrayal. There's a story about a girl on the subway, the object of another girl's affection, and the strength it takes to gather the courage to make that initial connection. There's the girl who, although she wants very badly to join in on a meeting of fellow gays and lesbians, isn't sure she'll ever be brave enough to do so. You can read about an online Internet relationship that progresses quickly, and falls apart amidst lies and betrayal. Or you can read the story TWO-PART INVENTION, my personal favorite, about two girls who have always been friends, and the love that grows from that friendship. Whether you're a lesbian or not, a questioning teen or not, you'll find something satisfying in these stories. They're heartfelt and wonderful, whether you read them one at a time or all at once.show more
