This week I read The Difference Between You and Me by Madeleine George. I did not read the inside cover before I checked it out so I was somewhat surprised that this story revolves around two girls who are in a secret love relationship. I did like this book because each chapter was from either Jesse’s perspective or Emily’s. Jesse is very open about being gay and she doesn’t care, she puts off a rough exterior with her big boots but sometimes it came across to me that she was vulnerable, especially when it came to Emily. On the other hand Emily has a boyfriend and has had this boyfriend (Mike) since they were born. She is a perfectionist and just wants to make her school better. Her and Jesse have nothing in common when you look at the lifestyle of the two or their appearance, but they are both very passionate people who want to be heard, just not about the same things. I would recommend reading this because it actually has a good message, which is that all people are different and if you really get to know someone and how they feel you might find an amazing person.
I am ashamed to say this was the only book I read this week.
