Love and Lies by Ellen Wittlinger

Marisol Guzman attends a "How to Write Your First Novel" class and mets a guy, named Gio, who falls in love with her, although she is a lesbian. She is stunned, but soon Marisol sees the teacher, Olivia Frost, and immediately she is head over heels in love with her! Marisol’s life is further complicated when a friend, Lee, who is newly out of the closet, is also attracted to Marisol. Will Marisol find love or will she be disappointed to find she wasn’t looking hard enough?

This book is very good although other people might think differently, especially if they are not open to the sexuality. The author’s details handle it well and the book is very good at “filling in the blanks” about each character. Ellen Wittlinger defines each character by making their thoughts and conversations really realistic. For me it was an interesting read, because I have never read a book quite like it.

There is a lot of sexuality and sexual references in the book.
