Kate and Tam meet, and both of their worlds tip sideways. At first, Tam figures Kate is your stereotypical cheerleader; Kate sees Tam as another tall jock. And the more they keep running into each other, the more they surprise each other. Beneath Kate's sleek ponytail and perfect façade, Tam sees a goofy, sensitive, lonely girl. And Tam's so much more than a volleyball player, Kate realizes: She's everything Kate wishes she could be. It's complicated. Except it's not. When Kate and Tam meet, they fall in like. It's as simple as that. But not everybody sees it that way. This novel in verse about two girls discovering their feelings for each other is a universal story of finding a way to be comfortable in your own skin.… (lisätietoja)

******reviewed from uncorrected ARC*****
children's diverse middlegrade novel in verse (two 7th grade girls fall into 'like' and come out to their families and schoolmates)
sweet, very relatable story dealing with the awkward uncertainties of middle school and girls learning to speak up for what makes them happy. I think a lot of kids will benefit from this very readable, very accessible story.

A quick read written in verse about two girls, Kate and Tam who take notice of each other at the beginning of the school year. Their paths keep crossing, their connection grows, and each of the girls need to decide what that means for her. Tam's mom is supportive as are her neighbors, an married lesbian couple. Kate's mom wants perfection and has a specific idea of success. As the two girls navigate their relationship and feelings about each other the poetry includes conversation and reflections. Between chapters a trio of girls, almost like a Greek chorus, recap and foreshadow about what is happening with the story. ( )

A novel in verse about the growing relationship between two middle school girls - a vollyball playing tall jock and a cheerleader. ( )
  Rachael_SJSU | Jul 11, 2020 |
Kate and Tam are 7th graders starting the school year. Kate is a cheerleader, aspiring to be captain and follow in her (uptight) mother’s footsteps. She is pretty and her house is perfectly maintained. Tam (short for Tamara), is tall, lanky and a volleyball star, looser and informal. Her mother is a hippie. The girls are drawn to each other in an opposites-attract way. But while Tam seems comfortable in her skin, Kate finds herself conflicted about who she is, torn between the expectations of her mother and the cheer squad, and what she is discovering about herself. This confusion threatens to break their new relationship. ( )

A Sapphic coming out story, told in verse.

(Full disclosure: I received a free e-ARC for review through NetGalley. Trigger warning for homophobia.)

Oh, honey.
If you think being normal is a win,
then I have done my job wrong.


Do you think you are?
Gay, I mean?
Lesbionic?


It's the first day of seventh grade, and Tam and Kate are registering for classes when they spot each other across the gym. On the surface, the girls - soon to be known to each other as Redwood and Ponytail - couldn't be more different. Tam is happy goofing around with her best friend Levi (as short as she is tall), scoring points on the volleyball team, and hanging out with her super-supportive mom and elderly lesbian neighbors, Frankie and Roxy. And with her aspirations to be the captain of the cheer squad - not to mention the all-around smartest, most respected girl at school - Kate is all but guaranteed to follow in her high-strung, perfectionist mom's footsteps.

Yet they form a fast and unlikely friendship that soon blossoms into something more. Will everyone be as cool with it as Tam's hippie mom? Can Kate find a way to break free of her mom's overbearing shadow? Will her cheerleader friends still love Kate if she's "lesbionic" - and more comfortable dancing around as the school's mascot than leading them in a routine? And just what is going on with Tam's bestie Levi and Kate's sister Jill?

I love a good novel in verse, and am always in the mood for a F/F love story, so it was inevitable that I take Redwood and Ponytail for a spin. Overall I enjoyed it, though some of the poems were a little too simplistic and rhyme-y for my taste. I'm well above the book's target audience of ten and up, though, so grain of salt.

Perhaps more germane: there's a scene where character z outs character y without any sort of real blowback or consequence, which is problematic as heck. PEOPLE, DO NOT DO THIS, EVEN IF YOU'RE HURT OR YOUR INTENTIONS ARE GOOD. Seriously, not a great example to set for the 10+ crowd.

On the plus side, Holt introduced me to the term "lesbionic," so there's that.
