Author: Shannon Hitchcock
Allie and Sam are classmates at Daniel Boone Middle School. Allie and Sam are friends. Allie and Sam are girls. Allie and Sam are falling for each other.
It’s 1977, and girls who like girls are forced to question their choices. One True Way is a story that widens the heart and sheds light on what it means to be different while at the same time being wholly true to oneself.
Through the lives of two girls and the influences around them — a small town, neighbors, teachers, and family — we come to see that love is love. Set against the backdrop of Southern history and politics that surrounded gay rights in the 1970s, this novel is a thoughtful, eye-opening look at tolerance, acceptance, and change.
