Summary Saving Alex Summary ↠ Saving Alex 108 Alex Cooper ¼ 8 Download When Alex Cooper was fifteen years old life was pretty ordinary in her sleepy suburban town and nice Mormon family At church and at home Alex was taught that God had a plan for everyone But something was gnawing at her that made her feel different These feelings exploded when she met Yvette a girl who made Alex feel alive in a new way and with whom Alex would uickly fall in loveAlex knew she was holding a secret that could shatter her family her church community and her life Yet when this secret couldn’t be hidden any longer she told her parents that she was gay. I m torn on how to rate this one The story itself was so compelling and felt like an important story to be told The writing was decent but not amazing I also felt like I was left with some unanswered uestions at the end of the book although perhaps they are unanswered because Alex is still so young and might not even know the answers yet Overall worth the read an important story told by a very brave and resilient young woman
