Girls Like Us
Gail Giles

Quincy and Biddy are both graduates of their high school’s special ed program, but they couldn’t be more different. When they’re thrown together as roommates in their first "real world" apartment, it initially seems to be an uneasy fit. But the two of them realize that they might have more in common than they thought—and more important, that they might be able to help each other move forward. Hard-hitting and compassionate, Girls Like Us is a story about growing up in a world that can be cruel and finding the strength—and the support—to carry on.
