Hazel Hill Is Gonna Win This One
Hazel Hill is something of a loner. When a girl is twelve and a lesbian, she will keep to herself. That doesn’t keep Tyler Harris, the most popular boy in school, from telling her all his dark secrets. He figures she has no one to tell anything to. Then one day, Tyler tells Hazel that Ella Quinn, a girl Tyler like-likes, won’t go out with him because Ella has a crush on Hazel. What Hazel finds out is that Ella said it to get rid of Tyler, who has been and continues to sexually harass her on social media. They become friends in spite of the deception. The adults they tell don’t believe them because Tyler is the golden boy. The girls need to find a way to be believed.
Maggie Horne has written a book that needed to be written. The problems she highlights are very real, and kids face them every day. This will help them realize they are not alone and that there are ways for them to be heard. The writing is stellar, the first-person point-of-view is perfect for Hazel to tell her own story, and the story is compelling. This is not to be missed.
