Finding Ashlynn by Zoe Lynne

Finding Ashlynn, Zoe Lynne, Harmony Ink Press
Being True #1
Every Friday night, Jenna and her best friend, Stella, attend their local LGBTQ youth group meeting. It’s a great place for support and friendship, but Jenna wants to fall in love. In walks Ashlynn, a purple-haired girl who wants to know how bad coming out of the closet can be.

Living in two different worlds, Jenna and Ash have vastly different ideas about the difference between sex and love, the definition of virginity, and how to face a world out in the open where they can admit their true feelings… whatever they may be.

A Harmony Ink Press Young Adult Title.

Jenna is out and has the support and love of her family, what she doesn't have is someone special in her life. Until a certain pink haired, from the wrong side of the tracks, rocker chick comes into her life. Jenna is very attracted to Ashlynn but isn't sure how the shy girl feels about her.

Ashlynn is smitten from the moment she meets Jenna but after one visit to Jenna's house she is convinced that Jenna could never really like a poor girl from a broken home.

Can a girl from the wrong side of the tracks find happiness, love and most importantly acceptance?

LOVED LOVED LOVED Ashlynn. Her quite, shy personality especially around Jenna's parents was so sweet to read. Her embarrassment about where and how she lived read very true for someone of her age. 

A strong cast of secondary characters helped round out and add depth to the overall story. I am very interested in Stella's story but have a feeling it's going to break my heart. I am happy to see stories that are centered around a safe place where GLBTQ kids can go and make friends and wish something like this was available everywhere. 

 Zoe Lynne writes like she has tapped into the mind of a teenage girl so the dialogue and situations in the book don't feel contrived but could be happening in any high school anywhere. A great book for the young adult set and can't wait for the next in the series!
