Between You & Me

Marisa Calin, August 2012.  Teenage Phyre (yeah) has a new drama teacher, and she’s infatuated. Mia is beautiful, confident, and talented, and even lets the students call her by her first name.  Phyre isn’t used to crushing on girls, but she just can’t resist the way Mia makes her feel.  Because of this, she fails to see what the reader will see early on – that her best friend, identified only as You, is falling in love with her. And then at the end they get together. It’s pretty predictable, but the screenplay format (at first annoying but I got used to it quickly) adds interest, as does the parallel story told in the play the gang puts on. Recommended.
