Dana Davidson, takes the quintessential teenage love story by storm and flips the script in a believable manner. How many of us know, remember or were the “not-quite-ugly” but “not-guaranteed-to-make-a-guy’s-tongue-hang-out” girl in High School?

Dana tells the tale of initiation and unexpected love without over-the-top drama and leaves us not only with likable main and secondary characters, but with a few messages.
  • ˆ’Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
  • ˆ’Be true to yourself
  • ’Even the popular people have issues
  • ˆ’Accountability for actions
A great read for this forty-one-year-old “teen”.

My Rating:




My Recommendation:

This title would make a great group discussion book to segue into teenage girls self-worth, self image, first times etc. It is also excellent for teenage boys to teach responsibility/accountability and to show both the possible outcome of giving into peer pressure
