She's Always Liked the Girls Best: Lesbian plays

Author: Claudia Allen

Quote: God forbid something should happen in your life. Trust me, kiddo, you can "what if" yourself into a pretty boring life.

Why you should read this book: Collected here are four different plays tied together by the theme of women loving women in a world that insists their natural feelings must be hidden away. Around the country, but mostly in small Michigan towns, characters struggle with the issues of their own identities in the face of disapproval from their friends, families, and neighbors. In Allen's world, love always wins out in the end, and every obstacle can be overcome by tough chicks who refuse to give up on their hearts' desire and their right to happiness.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You're still wondering what lesbians find to do together in bed.
