Redwood and Ponytail
Redwood and Ponytail | K.A. Holt
6 posts | 4 read | 1 to read
Kate and Tam meet, and both of their worlds tip sideways. At first, Tam figures Kate is your stereotypical cheerleader; Kate sees Tam as another tall jock. And the more they keep running into each other, the more they surprise each other. Beneath Kate's sleek ponytail and perfect faade, Tam sees a goofy, sensitive, lonely girl. And Tam's so much more than a volleyball player, Kate realizes: She's everything Kate wishes she could be. It's complicated. Except it's not. When Kate and Tam meet, they fall in like. It's as simple as that. But not everybody sees it that way. This novel in verse about two girls discovering their feelings for each other is a universal story of finding a way to be comfortable in your own skin.

This book gets into some of the messier sides of love and friendship, and it's really gay. Holt uses the free verse style to her advantage--I'm not good enough with words to verbalize what she does, but it's amazing.

What a much needed story for middle schoolers!
Loved it! These two characters are so likable and very real. #huggable #2019mglgbtq #2019mgnovelinverse #2019mgownvoices

I did hope for more of Levi‘s character ... then this morning it clicked! I already know Levi 🤦🏻‍♀️

I really enjoyed this MG novel in verse about two middle school girls who meet and instantly fall into deep like. Tam is a volleyball player, Kate a cheerleader and when they meet, worlds collide—navigating different friend groups, parents, and the world at large, the two must decide to be true to themselves, and each other, or to what other people expect. A great story about first love and being comfortable with who you are. Recommended.
