Summary

An eleven-year-old girl comes to terms with her feelings when she realises that she has a crush on one of her friends, also a girl.

Stevie is eleven and loves reading and sea-creatures. She lives with her mum, and she's been best friends with Andrew since forever. Stevie's mum teases her that someday they'll get married, but Stevie knows that won't ever happen.

There's a girl at school that she likes more. A lot more. Actually, she's a bit confused about how much she likes her. It's nothing like the way she likes Andrew. It makes her fizz inside. That's a new feeling, one she doesn't understand. Stevie needs to find out if girls can like girls - love them, even - but it's hard to get any information, and she's too shy to ask out loud about it. But maybe she can find an answer in a book.

With the help of a librarian, Stevie finds stories of girls loving girls, and builds up her courage to share the truth with her mum.

NOTE: The central character is aged 11 and coming to terms with her romantic feelings for another girl, there is no sexual content or undercurrent but it's all rather innocent, the focus is on her wanting to tell her mother and have her understand her feelings. The book ends positively with a developing friendship with the girl in question.
