520 Rebelling against the role others believe she should
conform to, Billie McCaffrey struggles with her feelings
for two of her friends.
520 As the tomboy daughter of the town’s preacher, Billie
McCaffrey has always struggled with fitting the mold of
what everyone says she should be. She’d rather wear sweats
, build furniture, and get into trouble with her solid
group of friends: Woods, Mash, Davey, Fifty, and Janie
Lee. But when Janie Lee confesses to Billie that she’s in
love with Woods, Billie’s filled with a nagging sadness as
she realizes that she is also in love with Woods…and
maybe with Janie Lee, too. Always considered “one of the
guys,” Billie doesn’t want anyone slapping a label on her
sexuality before she can understand it herself. So she
keeps her conflicting feelings to herself, for fear of
ruining the group dynamic. Except it’s not just about
keeping the peace, it’s about understanding love on her
terms—this thing that has always been defined as a boy and
a girl falling in love and living happily ever after. For
Billie—a box-defying dynamo—it’s not that simple. Readers
will be drawn to Billie as she comes to terms with the
gray areas of love, gender, and friendship, in this John
Hughes-esque exploration of sexual fluidity.
