I'll admit, I grabbed this book purely on the strength of the cover art and the excellent title. I knew nothing about the author, or anything about the plot beyond what was written on the dust jacket. Luckily it turned out to be a pretty good read!

It is mostly a pretty typical coming-of-age tale, featuring a group of friends who are now starting to wonder if any of them are meant to be "more than friends" and trying to figure out how that affects everyone. The refreshing thing is that unlike the stereotypically hetro version of this plot, we see some cautious, curious exploration of gender and sexuality beyond boy-meets-girl.

I think I'm a little old and jaded for the level of enthusiasm and intensity here, periodically rolling my eyes at the drama of it all, but I can see it being very authentic for teens who are in the same place as Billie and her Hexagon.
