Sorry Mum, I'm a Lesbian

Harmony lives in a Catholic household in a Church of England society, and has never found it easy. But when she discovers she's a lesbian, she has to lead several different lives at once to cover up secrets that would make her friends and family ashamed. Her already complicated life starts getting harder to handle, so she asks herself: 'Would it hurt anyone to tell her sister?' She does, and that move gets her life spinning out of control. Can Harmony pull the right strings to untangle her knotted life?

When she was 6, my sister Isla asked why two gay men were kissing, and my parents shielded her eyes and led her away. Then when she asked why it was bad, my parents had a massive go at her. Ever since I have been too scared to tell them about my sexuality. They wouldn't understand.

 

I also try to be the perfect friend, but it's hard when you are juggled around different cliques. The only ones that seem to want me are the Goths, the Geeks and the Weirdos, and even they can't make up their minds whether they want me or not. I'm not the only 'drifter' though, my best friends Emma and Zoey go between the same groups too, just when one group has one of us, the other two are split as well. We only really see each other in certain lessons. They don't mind it because they have simple lives, but me...
