Hard Love by Ellen Wittinger was one of the most heartbreaking, compelling books that I've read this year. It touches on some interesting topics, such as - homosexuality, a challenging friendship, and extreme oddness of character. When Gio ends up falling for his lesbian friend Marisol, things get a little tricky, and he is faced with the toughest thing of all-- hard love. He loves her, but she could never love him back in the way that he wants. It made it on my list of favorite books that I've read this year. It’s a great read, and I would grade it........ A. I highly recommend it to all interesting artsy people who are looking to read a book that is very compelling and shows a different point of view.
