Lies My Girlfriend Told Me; Julie Anne Peters

Lies My Girlfriend Told MeLies My Girlfriend Told Me by Julie Anne Peters
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Does it mark a turning-point (as some reviews say) when the sexual orientation of the characters doesn't matter? It's not that the orientation doesn't matter here, it's that the plot could be anyone in love who discovers they've been betrayed. Alix's reaction to Swan's death and her discovery of Liana is one that isn't reliant on them all being women; change the gender of even one of them and the story still works. The insertion of Joss and her grief didn't work quite as well and could have been handled better.
