Dress Codes for Small Towns

Amazon.com Rating:

As the tomboy daughter of the town's preacher, Billie McCaffrey has always struggled with fitting the mold of what everyone says she should be. She'd rather wear sweats, build furniture, and get into trouble with her solid group of friends: Woods, Mash, Davey, Fifty, and Janie Lee.

But when Janie Lee confesses to Billie that she's in love with Woods, Billie's filled with a nagging sadness as she realizes that she is also in love with Woods -- and maybe with Janie Lee, too.

Always considered "one of the guys," Billie doesn't want anyone slapping a label on her sexuality before she can understand it herself. So she keeps her conflicting feelings to herself, for fear of ruining the group dynamic. Except it's not just about keeping the peace, it's about understanding love on her terms -- this thing that has always been defined as a boy and a girl falling in love and living happily ever after. For Billie -- a box-defying dynamo -- it's not that simple.

Description

"Billie soon realizes their high jinks barely mask awakening desire as the friends begin to explore new dimensions of their relationship. 'I do not know what type of love we are — history, future, or infinity — but we are love all the same,' says Billie, wanting nothing of her group’s emotional intimacy to change while she questions her sexual orientation and tests the uncharted waters of physical attraction. With singing prose and a rollicking plot, Stevens presents a rich palette of characters daring to brave familial and societal expectations to become what they’re meant to be." -- Kirkus Reviews
