What I’m currently reading…
I am almost halfway through Camryn Garret´s book Full Disclosure were we follow Simone while she tackles the life as a high school student while directing the school musical Rent AND covering the fact that she’s HIV-positive. It’s alot to handle, and things just gets more complicated when Simone start dating a cute guy and being threaten by an anonymous note to out her to everybody.
I hope that you maybe found your next read on this little list of mine.
