It is a great piece of young adult fiction and when it was first published was considered completely groundbreaking in terms of YA LGBT fiction.
The book tells a touching and realistic relationship of two teen-aged girls, Annie and Liza, who met by chance in a New York Museum. The narrator, Liza, comes from a middle-class background and attends an independent school threatened with closure. Whilst Annie lives in a rough neighbour hood and escapes through music and stories. Both girls are initially very conflicted about her feelings but in time the pair come to admit their love in a world full of hate.
