Letting Go of Lisa by Lurlene McDaniel

Nathan has been homeschooled for all his life, but now his is going to high school. Right on his first day he sees a girl who catches his attention. Lisa rides a motorcycle, ignores school politics and does whatever she likes. He is determined to get to know her, and eventually convinces her to stop ignoring him and they become friends. But can Lisa trust anyone enough to tell them her secret?

This book is rather cliche and simplistic, but otherwise quite good. Both the main and supporting characters are very real feeling. The writing is solid, if rather uninspired at times. An entertaining and thought-provoking read for teens of both genders.

4 Stars
