Publisher's Summary

Seventeen-year-old Hannah wants to spend her senior year of high school going to football games and Mardi Gras parties. She wants to drive along the oak-lined streets of Louisiana's Garden District and lie on the hot sand of Florida's beaches. She wants to spend every night making memories with her tight-knit group of friends.
The last thing she wants is to fall in love with a girl - especially when that girl is her best friend, Baker.
Hannah knows she should like Wally, the kind, earnest boy who asks her to prom. She should cheer on her friend Clay when he asks Baker to be his girlfriend. She should follow the rules of her conservative community - the rules that have been ingrained in her since she was a child.
But Hannah longs to be with Baker, who cooks macaroni and cheese with Hannah late at night, who believes in the magic of books as much as Hannah does, and who challenges Hannah to be the best version of herself.
And Baker might want to be with Hannah, too - if both girls can embrace that world-shaking, wondrous possibility. Contains mature themes.

Such a good read

I read reviews and listened to the audio sample before I purchased...
honestly, I wasn't that impressed with the sample. I thought, "what the heck. I'll just get it."

It's a very realistic book. It captures the inner struggle some face in regards to religion and morality when coming out. I truly loved and cared about all the characters. The author described the setting and feelings in a way where you could see it and feel it. I felt the heart break ,and I felt the love.
I enjoyed the narrator as well.

Just get it. What have you got to lose?

probably my most loved story to date. story was fantastic, all the characters story's and the narrator was brilliant. I'm not religious and although it has some parts about religion , it is by no means trying to make you believe or not believe something. It's a fanatic book and I would recommend it for anyone. listening to this book I could really feel for the characters, it gets right to your heart and you find yourself feeling there pain and happiness.
