To be honest, I was unsure about this book. I had already formed my opinions about this book before I had even read it. This is a situation where you can't judge a book by its content. The author did a very thoughtful job of portraying the coming of age and sexual orientation. I was very impressed. I enjoyed that the author did not force lots of sex or over the top talk about sexual orientation. The author let me the reader slowly get to know Lena and Juliet as friends first and then as a couple. They were a sweet couple together. When they did hook up I felt the love. Everyone else around them for the most part were understanding. So, this helps if anyone is thinking of sharing the news with their parents. I hope that they have a good experience as Lena did with hers. Just Juliet is a thoughtful read.
