2 books with lesbian characters

I recently read two books I thought you all might enjoy...

The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
The Hours by Michael Cunningham

They're not exactly "lesbian books," but they have lesbian characters.

Has anyone read either of these, and what did you think?

you're right, rowie. i guess i meant that more in a "girls who like girls" sort of way.

funny enough, that is my school's summer reading for us...I can just imagine it now.

I use to be Someday's Dreamer but something happened to my account. Kaorin is not a fangirl of Sakaki, the last episode of Azumanga Daioh is all you need as proof.
