Lil O'Brien accidentally outed herself to her parents at the age of 19 when they overhead her talking to a friend about liking girls. Half an hour later she found herself on the side of the road, with instructions to come back and pick up her suitcase the next day. What follows i...s a heartbreaking yet hugely funny story of a young Kiwi girl - the deputy head girl from a posh private school in Christchurch - coming to grips with her sexuality and trying to reconcile who she is against the stark disapproval from her parents. Bit by bit, Lil finds the inner strength to pull herself into an entirely new world. Along the way she gets called out for looking too straight in a gay bar, falls in lust over a knotted football shoelace, and tries to date four women at once, unsuccessfully. Lil's story is an insightful and honest look at how the hell you figure out you're gay, or bi, or whatever, and an essential read for anyone who has had to fight for who they are and what they believe in.
