Down to the Bone by Mayra Lazara Dole

Laura, a Cuban American living in Miami, has been kicked out of school and kicked out of the house because she has a girlfriend. But then her girlfriend's family finds out and send her back to Puerto Rico to get married. Laura, never one to think of her self as a Lesbian now must figure out who she is and how she wants to live her life. Does she want to deny her instincts and live a life as a straight woman to make her mother happy or does she want to follow where her heart takes her and create a family made out of those who love her for who she is? This is a well done book and in interesting look at homosexuals are treated in a very ethnic community. Good and important but not great. I vote nay.

Allison expresses exactly how I felt about this book! I'm voting NO also.
