What Happens When By Samantha Boyette


Teenage drama with a lesbian theme makes for a really appealing read. Boyette shows a special talent with writing characters who are a mix of all possible positive and negative characteristics but all of them believable and people we can empathise with, even when they aren’t particularly shining.

This book has steadfast Lily, coming-into-her-own Molly and experimenting/confused Zia. In a party, Molly meets totally out Lily, the cousin of her classmate hosting the party and ends up kissing her in front of the whole senior year. Thus begins her realisation about her sexuality. Lily transfers to Molly’s school and Molly, who is still in denial, freezes her. At the same time, Molly meets the slightly older, incredibly sexy Zia and finds herself horribly attracted. Between keeping a clearly interested Lily at somewhat of a distance and getting it on with Zia while handling homophobic hate from her erstwhile best friend, Molly’s senior year is quite a landmine. Her supportive parents and protective brother are a soft place for her, though.

This is a well-paced book with thoroughly likeable characters…all the MCs and all the supporting and secondary characters are well etched out and feel real. A nice, light YA, high-school one.    


An extra half star here for Zia ­čśë
