Thérèse and Isabelle is the tale of two boarding school girls in love. In 1966 when it was originally published in France, the text was censored because of its explicit depiction of young homosexuality. With this publication, the original, unexpurgated text—a stunning literary portrayal of female desire and sexuality—is available to a US audience for the first time.

This is a very graphic story based on the author's own experience at a boarding school when she was a teen. It is live with imagery and the desperate passion of young love.

This is probably my favorite lesbian, woman loving woman book besides that of Annie on My Mind. There was no actual story plot, the main focus, all of the focus was on the two main characters, and how they grew to love one another within the short period of time. The book is told through first person of Therese, it's graphic but its done elegantly, and curious like young girls would be when discovering their and each other's bodies for the first time. The book was realistic as well; the girls knew they weren't going to be together for ever but they made up for it by the time they spent with one another on school grounds.

I totally recommend this book. It was so thought provoking and enchanting that I finished the book in one day. Even at work, I was stuck in this book!
