The Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley

32954321GENRE: Historic Fiction, Romance(Lesbian)
We all know that when integration of schools came about not all people were happy with it. This book explores that time and the difficulties of it with a new twist. Not only do the main characters have to struggle with the differences of color they also have to struggle with the feelings that have. Feelings that can even today get you hurt.
The characters of Sarah and Linda are both complex and you see Linda evolve alot throughout the novel. The setting is realistic enough and the romance gives it a different twist. I really enjoyed this book for both the history and the broaching of lesbian romance.
