Quincy and Biddy are both graduates of their high school's special ed program, but they couldn't be more different: suspicious Quincy faces the world with her fists up, while gentle Biddy is frightened to step outside her front door. When they're thrown together as roommates in their first "real world" apartment, it initially seems to be an uneasy fit. But as Biddy's past resurfaces and Quincy faces a harrowing experience that no one should have to go through alone, the two of them realize that they might have more in common than they thought, and more important, that they might be able to help each other move forward.

This book was a bit hard to get into, but I ended up liking it. The reading is not smooth due to the way the 2 characters "talked', but it got easier to read once I got used to it. It's a fairly short read, but I'm glad I read it.

Becoming an adult is never easy but these two girls make the best of it and learn that friendship is important.

This book touched me when I read it because these 2 girls went through an experience no woman should have to go through.

This work provided a fresh perspective on becoming an adult and finding out how to make your way in the world. The use of the alternating journal entries to tell the story is effective as we get two points of view on an event. The two main characters learn that they can share their lives and find strength in others. A quick read. Recommended.

Harrowing, heart breaking, heart warming. Characters that will stay with you, I reckon. It's also very good to see more diverse characters - there aren't many books about girls with disabilities around, and this one's a great addition to the list.
