9781599907581: Between You & Me

Phyre knows there is something life-changing about her new drama teacher, Mia, from the moment they meet. As Phyre rehearses for the school play, she comes to realize that the unrequited feelings she has for Mia go deeper than she's ever experienced. Especially with a teacher. Or a woman. All the while, Phyre's best friend-addressed throughout the story in the second person, as "you"-stands by, ready to help Phyre make sense of her feelings. But just as Mia doesn't understand what Phyre feels, Phyre can't fathom the depth of her best friend's feelings...until it's almost too late for a happy ending. Characters come to life through the innovative screenplay format of this dazzling debut, and unanswered questions-is "you" male or female?-will have readers talking.

About the Author:

Marisa Calin was born in the U.S., grew up in Bath, England, then moved to New York City at the age of eighteen to attend the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and pursue her dreams of being an actress. She is still in hot pursuit, and when not on stage or on set uses all her spare time and training to create vivid character-driven worlds on paper.

Review:

Kirkus *Starred* Review, Kirkus Best Book of 2012 A girl in love with the theater tells the story of her first great love in the form of a script... Phyre falls head over heels for Mia, their charismatic new theater instructor... The direct-address/script format works beautifully for her story; her self-absorption is so extreme that she can't see what's going on with "you," but readers do, in those bits of dialogue Phyre records but does not reflect on...This total-immersion emotional experience is one readers will both recognize and thoroughly enjoy.

Publishers WeeklyCalin's first novel, a story of romantic entanglements and self-discovery, has a few tricks up its sleeve that help it stand out from the pack. First is the pseudo-screenplay format, which has dialogue appearing between prose sections written from the first-person perspective of 16-year-old Phyre... Calin's second hook is that Phyre's closest friend is referred to only as "You."
The novel reads more like an extended monologue than a conventional screenplay, but readers will feel as if they are sitting beside Phyre on her emotional roller-coaster.

BooklistPhyre's roller-coaster emotions carry her through her crush, the school rumor mill, and a play within this loosely screenplay-styled first novel... This is a quick read that addresses the pain and exhilaration of infatuation--with a same-sex teacher, no less; the basic need to love who you love; and the confusion and possibilities of questioning one's sexuality, without judgment or sensationalism.
