From the Publisher:
When John, a 'zine writer who comes from a broken home, encounters Marisol, a self-confident young woman and also a 'zine writer, they fall in love amid the bohemian life of Boston, and, in the process, learn how exciting and difficult first love can be. A Printz Honor Book. Reprint.When John, a 'zine writer who comes from a broken home, encounters Marisol, a self-confident young woman and also a 'zine writer, they fall in love amid the bohemian life of Boston, and, in the process, learn how exciting and difficult first love can be. A Printz Honor Book. Reprint.Since his parents' divorce, John's mother hasn't touched him, her new fiancé wants them to move away, and his father would rather be anywhere than at Friday night dinner with his son. It's no wonder John writes articles like "Interview with the Stepfather" and "Memoirs from Hell." The only release he finds is in homemade zines like the amazing Escape Velocity by Marisol, a self-proclaimed "Puerto Rican Cuban Yankee Lesbian." Haning around the Boston Tower Records for the new issue of Escape Velocity, John meets Marisol and a hard love is born. | While at first their friendship is based on zines, dysfuntional families, and dreams of escape, soon both John and Marisol begin to shed their protective shells. Unfortunately, John mistakes this growing intimacy for love, and a disastrous date to his junior prom leaves that friendship in ruins. Desperately hoping to fix things, John convinces Marisol to come with him to a zine conference on Cape Cod. On the sandy beaches by the Bluefish Wharf Inn, John realizes just how hard love can be. | With keen insight into teenage life, Ellen Wittlinger delivers a story of adolescence that is fierce and funny -- and ultimately transforming -- even as it explores the pain of growing up.
Annotation:
Sixteen-year-old John can't express any emotion unless he's writing. When he picks up a magazine written by a teenage girl named Marisol, he knows he has to meet her--she sounds incredible. When the two finally do meet, they discover a wonderful friendship that allows them to talk about anything--John talks about his parents' divorce, Marisol wishes her adoptive parents wouldn't smother her so much. John realizes he's falling in love with her and reveals his feelings. Surprised and touched, she can't believe that he actually loves her, but the feeling isn't mutual. And to make matters worse, John is about to find out a secret about Marisol that may just crush his entire world. A 2000 Michael L. Printz Honor Book.
