Twelve Long MonthsAnnotation
From Brian Malloy, acclaimed author of the adult novel The Year of Ice, comes a smart, funny, heartfelt novel about being a straight girl who's completely fallen for a gay boy.Awards
Please believe Molly Swain when she tells you: "Never fall in love with a gay boy. And whatever you do, don't move to New York and invite said gay boy to live with you, to make a fresh start in a new city. After all, that was what I was trying to do. Yeah, I'm only eighteen, which is, as my father says, not old enough to know your head from your ass, but still, I should have known better. After all, I was valedictorian."
