Lambda Literary Award winner Good Moon Rising is about two young women who fall in love while rehearsing a school play, realize they're gay, and resist a homophobic campaign against them. Good Moon Rising, both a New York Public Library Book for the Teenage and a Notable Children's Trade Book in the Field of Social Studies, "takes us into the dynamics of homophobia" (Horn Book). "Garden, who gave us one of the first honest, sensitive portrayals of two young women in love in the brilliant Anne On My Mind, Farrar, 1982, offers us another thought-provoking story of homosexual love."-Voya

Nancy Garden's Annie on My Mind is the classic lesbian young adult novel. It is so truthful and honest, it has been banned from many school libraries and even publicly burned in Kansas City. Her newest novel, Good Moon Rising, is also about a young teenage lesbian and is as moving and startling as Annie. Jan and Kerry are two aspiring actresses in high school. When they begin working on a production of The Crucible -- not coincidentally about another kind of witchhunt -- they find that they are at the center of a social and academic controversy. As always, Garden understands the problems of young people, the prevalence of social homophobia, and pain of being an outcast. Good Moon Rising is mandatory reading for anyone interested in the problems faced by gay youth today, or for that matter, the problems faced by gay people everywhere.About the Author:
