This "first shocking printing" introduces us to small-town cheerleader Lois Lenz, who practices kissing with her best friend, Faye, rather than with her boyfriend, Billy. When her guidance counselor suggests Lois has an aptitude for management and secures her a job in the city, Lois goes for it, even though it means leaving Faye. Faye's ambition is to attend community college, marry her boyfriend, Rod, and become a leader in their town, Walnut Grove. Lois doesn't see that for herself, and she has a passion for filing that must be fulfilled.
The counselor finds Lois housing at the Magdalena Arms, where the girls on the fifth floor don't seem to talk much about boys and dating. Instead they get Lois drunk on her first night and eventually embroil her in a mystery about her room's previous tenant.
Published in 2007, Lois Lenz is 1950s lesbian pulp novel in which its protagonist is a new-born pup attracted to all the other pups, and maybe a big dog or two. It's full of attraction and necking, but not a ton of below the belt description. Totally adorbs.
