Teen Read, Teen Reviewed: Hard Love
In this story, Hard Love is about John, who is not very interested in anything much, not even girls. He has a mother that won’t even touch him, and a father who left him, and his troubled mother. Every weekend, John visits his absent father, and stays with him all weekend.
He ends up meeting a new friend when he started making writing his own zines. Her name is Marisol Guzman, and she is a Puerto Rican Cuban Yankee Cambridge, Massachusetts, rich spoiled lesbian private-school, gifted-and-talented writer virgin looking for love.
The closer the two get, the more John falls in love with her. Things go for the worst when John invites Marisol to the junior prom, and mistakes their growing closeness for love, and after tries to fix it by taking her to a zine conference in Cape Cod. This charming tale tells about a lost boy falling in love with a lesbian, and how hard love really is.
I recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a funny, love story about hard love.
