Synopses & Reviews
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 my Gray'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.
"Snadowsky's debut novel is an unusually honest portrayal of a teen girl's sexual discovery." Booklist
"With a dedication to Judy Blume, and frank talk about masturbation and oral sex, Snadowsky's debut novel clearly owes a debt to Forever." Children's Literature
"Snadowsky's narrative easily holds the reader's interest with well-drawn, realistic characters, flowing prose, dialogue and emails." Kirkus Reviews
