A beautiful, sensitive tale of coming out that fearlessly explores the pressure felt by teenage girls to conform, and ultimately inspires
Felicity Costello, aka Flick, is pretty much like any other 16-year-old—except for one difference. A difference she doesn’t want anyone else to know about. A difference she hardly admits even to herself. Flick is the story of Felicity’s journey to discovering that she is gay, admitting it to herself, and finally telling her friends and family. It is a refreshingly honest depiction of teenage life as it is lived today. Difficult themes of depression and coming-out are handled beautifully in this coming-of-age novel.
