Happy New Year, all! We’re just getting geared up for our newest book club. We’ll be reading Just Girls by Rachel Gold!

Just Girls by Rachel Gold (Bella Books, 2014)

Just Girls by Rachel Gold (Bella Books, 2014)

Jess Tucker sticks her neck out for a stranger—the buzz is someone in the dorm is a trans girl. So Tucker says it’s her, even though it’s not, to stop the finger pointing. She was an out lesbian in high school, and she figures she can stare down whatever gets thrown her way in college. It can’t be that bad.

Ella Ramsey is making new friends at Freytag College, playing with on-campus gamers and enjoying her first year, but she’s rocked by the sight of a slur painted on someone else’s door. A slur clearly meant for her, if they’d only known.

New rules, old prejudices, personal courage, private fear. In this stunning follow-up to the groundbreaking Being Emily, Rachel Gold explores the brave, changing landscape where young women try to be Just Girls.

Here are the buy links!

We’ll be discussing both on Twitter and on Tumblr.

On tumblr, track and post in the GayYA Book Club tag. You can feel free to post reactions/thoughts as you read, reviews, pictures, introductions of who you are, fan art… anything you want, that’s related to Just Girls. 🙂 GayYA’s tumblr account, thegayya, will reblog things so more people will see them!

Then there’ll be an hour long Twitchat on January 21st at 8pm EST (lead by the wonderful Katherine Locke).

Looking forward to reading and discussing with ya’ll! Email vee@gayyya.org if you have any questions.
