Complementary and Acute - Ella Lyons

Honestly, I think I would have enjoyed this more if it had been longer. At fifty pages, the author attempts to establish a strong relationship between these girls that changes when Jac comes out as gay to her roommate, Annabelle. With most of the story devoted to covering the jealousy that Annabelle feels when Jac begins hanging out with other people, there was little time to spare in establishing their close relationship, so it came across a little heavy handed in the beginning and I figured out where the story was going before I had read the first five pages. A longer work would have, I believe, allowed more time for the story to grow and would have allowed for more subtlety in the beginning.
