Freshman Year (You Know Who Girls#1)

The You Know Who Girls: Freshman Year by Annameekee Hesik is the first book in her Gila High YA series.

Abbey Brooks and her best friends are about to start high school. Kate has come up with a list of rules for them to guide their behavior and (hopefully) make them fit in with the older crowd. The list includes not joining the basketball team - partly because there are rumors that some of the players are lesbians.

Abbey and Kate are tall so they are being encouraged to try out for basketball by current team members. Abbey wants to try out. She wants to join because she thinks maybe she is lesbian - or at least she knows that there is a senior girl who she finds fascinating.

Hesik has written a great start to this series. Abbey Brooks finds her way through her feelings and the opinions of others to decide the type of person she wishes to become. Great lesbian YA book.
