Joanie feels doomed to be the third wheel. Her best friend, Zane, always seems to get the girl, and as far as she can tell, she’s the only lesbian at her school. Of course, she’s only out to Zane, so even if there were other lesbians, they might not recognize her either. Everything changes when new girl Kate comes to school, and needs tutoring in math by Joanie and in chemistry by Zane. Both Joanie and Zane end up with crushes on Kate, driving a wedge in their relationship, and when Kate shows her interest to be in Joanie, Zane doesn’t take it very well at first.
So Joanie has a girlfriend, but her problems are far from solved. She’s in the closet at home and at school, and Kate isn’t and doesn’t want to be; Joanie’s parents are pushing her to go to the prom and finally arrange a date for her with a football player which causes Kate to almost break things off.
As can be expected, things turn out fine after a few bumps and bruises (some of them literal). A quick and entertaining read, especially for the reluctant reader.
