Abbey Brooks, Gila High freshman-to-be, never thought a hellish day of shopping at the mall with her best friend, Kate, could change her life. But when she orders French fries from the flirtatious Hot Dog on a Stick Chick, she gets more than deep-fried potatoes. Abbey tries to ignore the weird, happy feeling in her gut, but that proves to be as impossible as avoiding the very insistent (and rumor has it very lesbian) players on Gila High’s girls’ basketball team. They want freakishly long-legged Abbey to try out, and Abbey doesn’t hate the idea. But Kate made Abbey pinky swear to avoid basketball and to keep away from the you-know-who girls on the team.

Sometimes promises can’t be kept. And sometimes girls in uniform are impossible to resist.

About the Author:

Annameekee Hesik came out when she was fifteen and has since told her entire family, the pet store guy, the lady in line at the post office, and pretty much anyone else she comes in contact with. After surviving high school, she went to college for six years and changed her major five times. She is thrilled she finally decided to become a high school English teacher (with a background in anthropology, American Sign Language, history, and environmental biology). And yes, she is out to her students, too. When she isn’t teaching lessons on writing, reading, and talking about why reading and writing are so important, she spends her time in Santa Cruz, California, walking her dogs, riding bikes with her wife, slurping down mocha shakes, and writing books that she hopes will help lesbian and questioning teens feel like they are not the only girl loving girls in the world.

Review:

"Abbey's well-rendered narrative voice easily conveys the joy of discovering new friends and the deliciousness of illicit kisses, as well as her fears about her old friends and her mom finding out. The cast, appropriately for the Tuscon setting, is ethnically diverse, and Keeta's frequent Spanglish comes across as dreamy without being exoticized." -Kirkus Reviews

"The You Know Who Girls is a delightful novel with a diverse cast of characters and a hilarious narrator that is impossible to resist.  From the moment Abbey lays eyes on the irresistible Hot Dog on a Stick Chick to the very last page, Annameekee Hesik grips her readers' attention with her unique coming of age/coming out story that is heartfelt, funny, and a welcome addition to the positive images of lgbt youth.  Thank goodness there's a sequel in the works!"
-Ellen Bass, author of Free Your Mind: The Book for Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual Youth and Their Allies

I sure wish I had gone to high school with The You Know Who Girls! Annameekee Hesik has created smart, sassy, sweaty, sexy characters who tore down the basketball court and leaped into my heart. Readers of all ages will absolutely love this book.
-Lesléa Newman, author of The Reluctant Daughter and Heather Has Two Mommies

"It's not easy to write humorously about lesbian adolescence. It's a gift and a talent, and Annameekee Hesik, a Santa Cruz teacher and the author of the You Know Who Girls series, has both." - Curve Magazine
