The votes are in: marriage is between a man and a woman. What do two young people in love do, if those words don't work for them? Carys and Jami may be girls, but Carys has never willingly worn a dress and Jami, who has, is intersexed. Though being a teenager in love is never easy, for Carys and Jami falling in love with each other is a terrifying journey in self-discovery and, ultimately, trust.

From the Author:

The main characters in Fool for Love are two eighteen year old girls, in the final months of high school and home school. (Of course 'girls' is the label applied by the culture in which they live; it's not a label with which either of them is completely happy.)

Jami is intersexed. I am vague about the details, because intersex is a complex topic. I don't want to make it difficult for readers to identify with Jami, and I don't want to bog the story down in esoteric medical details. Jami is into photography, computers and thinking. Her main conflict comes from feeling that she's actually something very different from what she appears to be (a charming and pretty young girl). To step out of that role is to step into danger, on many levels.

Carys falls somewhere between butch dyke and transgender in the genderqueer spectrum. She's a theater person, a clown (literally) and a big Sherlock Holmes fan. Carys has some problems with her parents and with school, where she's in the GSA. As the kind of person who is called "dyke" while she's walking down the street, Carys has a rather different set of issues than Jami.

There are a few fairly emotional scenes as Carys and Jami get to know each other. There is no graphic detail, but I try to hint at the emotional minefield that surrounds the question of sexual intimacy for some people, and what it can mean to be involved with such a person.

About the Author:

Lisa Lees was born in Missouri in 1952, grew up in Oklahoma and has lived in Michigan since 1978. She is a parent of two home-schooled teens, a long-time theater volunteer and is more or less retired from working as a technical writer and systems analyst.
