Just Juliet by Charlotte Reagan

I picked up Just Juliet after seeing some good reviews on Goodreads. I'm glad I did. Just Juliet was a sweet story about first love.

Lena is 17 and a senior in high school. She has a boyfriend and does well in school. Lena figures she'll go to college, get married, have kids, and become a teacher like many of the other girls in her town. But when Lena meets Juliet, Lena discovers that she might not want those things after all. Juliet is artistic and spends a lot of time making her own clothes. And the rumor is that Juliet is gay. Lena's never met a gay person before but she knows she wants to become Juliet's friend. Lena and Juliet seem to have a lot in common-art, horror movies, video games. The more time Lena spends with Juliet the less time Lena wants to spend with anyone else. But does Lena like Juliet as a friend or something more?

I appreciated how real Lena, Juliet and the other characters were. Reagan takes the time to let the characters tell their story. I also loved the epilogue which provided the happiest ending for all the characters. I really enjoyed Just Juliet. Others who shared their thoughts on Just Juliet: Life of A Crazy Mom, Every Book Counts, and The Nerdgirl Reviews.
This satisfies the Read a LGBTQ romance novel for the Read Harder Book Challenge.
