South of Sunshine

We rated this book:


Kaycee has been hiding herself for a long time. In a town like Sunshine, with old prejudices that run all the way back it seems to the beginning of the United States, Kaycee cannot reveal that she is a lesbian for the fear of the retaliation she will have to face. She has been hiding in the image she created for herself for a long time, but when new girl Bren Dawson shows up during her senior year, Kaycee begins to feel things that she has been trying to push down for a long time. Only one question remains: how far will Kaycee go to be accepted, loved, and most importantly free?

South of Sunshine was very inspiring for me to read and I really enjoyed it. I particularly enjoyed the views that were expressed in the book by the author in regard to whether or not gays were sinners, and how being that way isn’t a choice, it’s the way they were born, like how you cannot control what color your eyes are or what hair style you get. This book really moved me and I really hope this helps open others eyes as well.
