A Good Review?

I need your opinion.  This morning a review came in for A Hot Time in Texas that I can't figure out.  It's from Between the Lines, an online reviewer.  She first has an issue with the name Twink and alludes to the idea that Twink might be a slang word for something I am too naive to understand.  No one has ever made this suggestion before.  Then she mentions that some of the dialogue sounds a little contrived.   So I'm thinking she hates the book, but she gives it an overall 4 stars (Great Read- A Keeper).  This is VERY HIGH PRAISE.  I looked at her other reviews and she is a brutal, hard grader.  So I guess I am pleased that she really did like the book and gave it such high marks. Although I am at a loss to understand the Twink remark.  I actually knew a woman named Twink and thought it was a great name for a pixie-ish character.  So, help me out.  If you know of a problem with the name Twink, let me know.

Here's the link if you want to read the whole thing.

Maybe Twink has something to do with drugs. I'm as ignorant as you, but I like your book.

according to Wikipedia and other Internet sites, it's gay slang for a young, gay boy.
