Crossing by Stacey Wallace Benefiel

Due to heavy subject matter, Crossing is recommended for readers 17+.

He stole her lipstick…and her heart.

Twenty-year-old Dani Walker can’t believe her luck when she’s paired up with the gorgeous Liam Garrett as her Acting I scene partner – or when he ends up in her bed. Being a Plain Jane with a mouth on her hasn’t exactly served Dani well in the guy department. In fact, she’s had nothing but one night stands. Still, she lets go of her insecurities and falls for Liam, despite feeling like he’s holding something back.

When Dani finally discovers Liam’s secret, she must learn the true meaning of accepting the ones we love for who they are, or risk losing the best thing that’s ever happened to her.

First line:
I pull my backpack straps away from the sweaty front of my Hello Kitty t-shirt as I run up the wide concrete steps of Villard Hall.

I loved Dani from the start. She's this loud-mouthed girl who says what she's thinking. She has a sharp tongue and she's witty and funny. While in a theater class, she meets Liam. He's just as witty and sharp-tongued as she is. The two seem like a great match and I was rooting for them the whole time.

And then I discovered Liam's secret. Liam is a cross-dresser. I found that out and I just thought "What the heck am I reading?" I only finished the book because Dani is a great main character. There's really not much more I can say about this other tan the fact that I was completely stunned.

Summary: Great characters, setting, and dialogue. Plot line and boyfriends: not so much.
