Getting Somewhere by Beth Neff (Viking)
Four teen girls ( inquisitive Jenna, secretive Cassie, cynical Sarah, and bitter Lauren) find their lives colliding in an experimental juvenile detention center in the middle of nowhere. This young adult book that can't quite be called a lesbian novel, but one of the characters is indeed queer, and because of that LGBT teens and adults both might enjoy it.The novel focuses on the teen characters one at a time (much like The Grounding of Group Six did) as it unpacks all of their secrets, issues, and prejudices, making it an easy, interesting feminist read.
