Hello Groin! by Beth Goobie

19 Sep

Dylan is a typical 16-year old girl with a hot boyfriend, Cam and a best friend since grade school in Jocyln. Who cares if Joc’s boyfriend is a total moron and Dylan has no romantic feelings for Cam at all. Life is good and if it would only stay just as it is, then Dylan just might survive high school in the closet…

But, we all know that doesn’t make for a good story. Dylan gets a surprise kiss at a rival school’s dance from a girl named Sheila. Thrown into a tailspin as she recognizes that she also has feelings for Joc she struggles to come to terms with who she is and how she can be true to herself in high school, the toughest of all juries. There is a nice subplot about a book display Dylan puts together for the library and the censorship issues involved. Engaging, quick paced with a raw, edgy quality. The characters are realistic and will be easy to relate to for teens and adults. The story(set in Canada) could happen in any high school in any country.  2006, 273 pages.
