"Like [Judy Blume's] Forever, this sensitive, candid novel is sure to find a wide audience among curious teens."--Booklist
Before this all happened, the closest I'd ever come to getting physical with a guy was playing the board game Operation. Okay, so maybe that sounds pathetic, but it's not like there were any guys at my high school who I cared to share more than three words with, let alone my body.
Then I met Wes, a track star senior from across town. Maybe it was his soulful blue eyes, or maybe my hormones just started raging. Either way, I was hooked. And after a while, he was too. I couldn't believe how intense my feelings became, or the fact that I was seeing—and touching—parts of the body I'd only read about in myGray's Anatomy textbook. You could say Wes and I experienced a lot of firsts together that spring. It was scary. It was fun. It was love.
And then came the fall.
Daria Snadowsky's unflinching dissection of seventeen-year-old Dominique's first relationship reveals the ecstasy and the agony of love, and everything in between.
"[Snadowsky] deals in modern terms with the real issues of discovering sex for the first time . . . in a responsible way."--SLJ
