Title: New Girl
Genre: LGBT YA
"You gotta get your head around this stuff, Carly. Otherwise you'll be lost. Just lost.”
Carly knows Jane is right. She has to figures things out. And one of those things is how she feels about Jane.
Carly is almost 15 and is the new girl at school. Again. She desperately wants to fit in and have friends. The first day at school she meets Jane who is happy to include her in her social circle. She earns a place on the track team, and knows she can help win a place for the team in the county finals.
She didn’t count on falling for Jane. Nor on the fact that Jane hates jocks. Mostly, Jane seems to dislike most of things that interest Carly, especially the quiet, mysterious Tommy Mack.
Carly knows she’s in trouble when she deliberately loses a race and shuns Tommy Mack to impress Jane.
To make matters worse, she has to figure out where she stands on a whole host of issues, like drugs, alcohol, and a new and different kind of loneliness. Issues she has avoided so far because she has never had to stay in one place for too long.
