Wilkinson, Lili. Pink. HarperTeen, 2011.
But Ava isn't sure she wants all of this anymore. So she gets a scholarship to an elite private school and goes to school in a pink sweater, not telling anyone that she's a lesbian and hoping to be "normal" for a change. Of course, all of these plans blow up in her face and she ends up picking up the pieces and righting wrongs and trying to figure out what she is.
This was a surprisingly good book. I enjoyed following Ava's self-discovery and appreciated what her friends did for her. I felt like the story had a good, satisfying ending. I would put a copy of this book in my library, and may still do so if I can find one for cheap/free.
Recommended for: fans of chick lit, theater nerds, fans of LGBTQ+ lit
Red Flags: lots of drinking, Ava's girlfriend smokes, Ava almost has sex with a boy who then complains that he is a virgin, language
Overall Rating: 5/5 stars
