 Stop Kiss, by Diana Son.  Set in New York City, Stop Kiss is a romance and a comedy that runs into and through a vicious hate crime.  Callie, a jaded traffic reporter, and Sara, a newly arrived grade school teacher, like thousands in Manhattan, are young people caught between college and the rest of their lives.  But Callie and Sara soon find themselves in unchartered territory --scary places, like commitment and care-giving.  A fickle cat, noisy neighbors, and helicopters play secondary but important roles in this funny, moving, and distrubing story.
