Year 13, Book 32

32. Stray City by Chelcey Johnson

After leaving her small Nebraska town for Portland Andie comes out, is estranged from her family, and immerses herself in the 90’s lesbian scene in Portland. After a particularly nasty breakup with her girlfriend she finds herself being wooed by a man and giving in to his charms. Despite her misgivings about their relationship she finds herself pregnant and wondering what to do. This was a great book that looks at issues of identity, love, and family. I appreciated the jump forward in time in the second half of the book and liked the way everything wrapped up. I give it an 8 out of 10.
