Title: Georgia Peaches and Other Forbidden Fruit
Series: Standalone
Author: Jaye Robin Brown
Publisher: HarperTeen
Release date: August 30th, 2016



Joanna Gordon has been out and proud for years, but when her popular radio evangelist father remarries and decides to move all three of them from Atlanta to the more conservative Rome, Georgia, he asks Jo to do the impossible: to lie low for the rest of her senior year. And Jo reluctantly agrees. 

 Although it is (mostly) much easier for Jo to fit in as a straight girl, things get complicated when she meets Mary Carlson, the oh-so-tempting sister of her new friend at school. But Jo couldn’t possibly think of breaking her promise to her dad. Even if she’s starting to fall for the girl. Even if there’s a chance Mary Carlson might be interested in her, too. Right?

Thank you Edelweiss and Harper Collins for the e-ARC

I really really liked Georgia Peaches and Other Forbidden Fruit. Especially the cast of characters! Jaye Robin Brown knows how to write group of friends and family and love. I had such a fun time while reading this book and seriously, didn't want anything to end.


- A big part of this book is about religion and faith and belief. And you can see two sides of the coin in this book: Jo's family and her new stepmom's family.

- Jo (the MC) has a deal with her dad. And when they move to the new town, she needs to hide that she likes girls. Of course, then she meets Mary Carlson and everything comes crashing down.

- Family support and A+ friendships.

- Flirtinggggg I can't wait to get my own copy because 1) that cover is my favorite thing in the world, it's so damn cute, 2) this story is incredible and will forever be with me in my heart.

I can't wait to recommend this book to every single person (yes yes yes)
