“Among the most convincing lesbian characters in young adult fiction, Evie makes a lasting impression. . . . [Parr is] just as finely drawn and memorable. . . . First-rate storytelling with Kerr in absolute control of the narrative.” —School Library Journal
“Kerr skillfully evokes the gritty realities and narrow horizons of farm life in this sensitive portrayal of the lesbian daughter of a rural Missouri family.” —Publishers Weekly
“Movingly dramatized . . . Teens will be swept up in the emotion and immediacy of Parr’s fast-paced narrative, his voice perfectly pitched between wit and melancholy.” —Booklist
“Evie is both convincing and sympathetic. Sensitive, compelling.” —Kirkus Reviews

Also, the characters are well-developed, completely believable and totally unique...
not to mention the plot, theres more than the stereotypical love story in here.
this book i believe can and will continue to stand the test against time. and i know why after reading this...
While Doug is away at college, Evie and Parr meet Patsy at a party. Patsy's father is an important banker in the community and has an incredible amount of power. Without Patsy's father's knowledge, Evie and Patsy begin spending a lot of time together. It becomes clear to Parr that Evie and Patsy are gay and have started dating each other. He is upset because Evie isn't doing as much around the farm anymore, and he worries that she will leave, forcing him to take over in her place.
Others in the community, including Patsy's father, are upset about the fact that the girls are lesbians. Nasty things are said to them and about them, and Patsy's father blames Evie for corrupting his daughter. Evie, though, has never been happier. Can her relationship with Patsy survive all of the obstacles in the way?
I liked that Evie was so true to herself and didn't care what others had to say about her. This story lacked much of the angst that stories about gay teenagers often have. I would have liked to have seen things from Evie's point of view, though, to get a more well rounded idea of what she was really experiencing, rather than just hearing about it from Parr.
