- Full Length
Kia Clark has dreamt of Marisol Feliciano (literally and figuratively) since the start of the school year, but always assumed that she, like everyone else in their neighborhood, was staunchly heterosexual. While supporting Marisol through a health crisis, however, Kia discovers that Marisol “like girls” after all, and the two share a forbidden kiss that is to be the start of a fulfilling--if challenging-- romantic relationship.
While they manage to keep their involvement a secret from their families, they supply their gay-bashing classmates with plenty of ammunition for social torment. The harassment escalates until finally Marisol’s house is vandalized, ultimately causing her mother to disown her, and the unthinkable happens to Kia.
