Winner of all 4 Books is WhatBri Reads
If you remembered I stated that I would pick one winner, or separate the books to 4 winners. But as I read some of the essays, one jumped out at me that I just couldn't ignore. I hope she doesn't mind my posting it here for everyone to read. I also had sent her an e-mail because she really opened my mind to this issue. I'd have to say my favorite book is Keeping You A Secret by Julie Anne Peters. There aren’t many books for GLBT teens out there, and I think this one is definitely one of the better ones. It’s about a girl, Holland, who meets a new girl at her school and starts to fall in love with her. But Holland has a boyfriend, and isn’t sure what to do. She decides to go after the girl, but has to hide it so that her peers and mom don’t find out. But then they do, and, well it’s a great story. Julie Anne Peters is also one of my favorite authors, because of how she writes and the topic she writes on. All of her books have to do with GLBT teens in some way, and I think that’s great. I definitely look up to her, and we need more authors like her. Anyone who is GLBT and hasn’t read her books definitely should. I’d even recommend it to anyone who wants to see what kind of harassment and whatnot that GLBT people have to face in every day life. GLBT = gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgendered, if you didn’t know. :) Briana I sent you an e-mail, so send me your address and I'll mail them out!
