grandmother and then the other s father as ballast to the teens hanging out.I really enjoyed Chapter 10 but 11 was a distraction Then 12 started out positively and the book finished with a disappointing ending I think it s a measure of how far we have come that Hautzig didn t write an HEA to this story Not that high school friends always ride off into the sunset together, but still it can happen and usually does now in these stories yeah So the writing was really pretty good given the YA feel maybe a 4 but I was so irritated and frustrated that I can t give itthan a 3 You may like itthan I did especially if you are closer to high school than I am and if you are happy with a realistic but slightly depressing ending Grade C as historical fiction or a period piece In 1978, sophos

relate to the story Like narrator Val, I was a sopho when HEY, DOLLFACE was released I remember having similar questions, not about a friend, but about my sexuality It wasn t considered normal As a contrast, an adult male hitting on a teenage girl was considered normal Like Val, when it happened to me, I never thought to tell an adult, but unlike her, I was too ashamed to tell anyone What could have been a brave foray into the story of two girls exploring their sexuality confused me as a teen, and felt like a cop out in 2015 I wonder if censors made write Deborah Hautzig change the ending or tone down the lesbian angle.HEY, DOLLFACE would be a good novel discussion in a history of the LGBT movement or as part of a discussion of then and now I m not sure I d recommend the book to teens if they weren t interested in the how far gay rights have evolved.THEMES friendship, homosexuality, history, inappropriate adult teen interactions val and chloe are both new at their swanky prep school,

charming anyhow, in a this is so ridiculous and out of date that I have to love it kind of away i mean, the title of the book is hey, dollface which in itself is very, very hilarious also, the author is wearing a necktie in her photo, which is definitely appealing and i did appreciate hautman s point that people are not necessarily 100% straight or 100% gay.but as fun as it was to read, it was definitely time to weed it the guidance that valerie receives when she asks parents and teachers about homosexuality are too narrow minded for the present I remembered this book being a lotexplicit when I first read it at 9 years old than when I re read it in college It s not, really, beyond a bit of confused groping A relatively realistic portrayal of girl girl sexual exploration as a teenager No rainbows, no pride parades, just the awkward, nameless fumbling that many kids do Very much worth a quick read if you can find a copy, it s been out of print for years.

and Chloe are kindred spirits, and they quickly become close friends When a same sex attraction develops between them, they question and explore, but ultimately neither redefines herself as gay at least not within the confines of the novel The tone of the story is gentle and thoughtful rather than fraught The high school drama is relatively low key, and there is a lot of introspection and rumination Despite being a bit dated, this is still an excellent story for young people who may be questioning or curious It s unique in that it focuses on same sex attraction between two individuals who continue to self identify as straight, which introduces the idea that one can experience these feelings and even have a same sex relationship within having to define oneself as one thing or another Val starts attending a new school She is lonely until she meets and befriends a fellow artist, Chloe Soon the two are inseparable Val becomes confused about their relationship Are they too close This is the first book I ve ever read about the confusion teens face when they feel attracted to a person of their own gender, and it was a powerful and well told story It s a tiny bit dated, as it was first published back in the 70 s, and I think it would possibly be much easier to talk to parent Val starts attending a new school She is lonely until she meets and befriends a fellow artist,
