When seventeen-year-old Maxine Banks from Houston, Texas convinces her boyfriend to marry her, she finds out that marriage isn’t quite what she had in mind.

“It’s a pleasure watching [Maxine] learn from experience and apply that earned wisdom, especially the dawning recognition that if Demonee has the right to be loved and accepted for who she is, so has Maxine herself.” --Kirkus Reviews
