It's been a while since I've talked about books. The people who write them seem to get all the attention (and with good freakin' reason). But I'm changing that today.
Because Monday Book Madness is back!
And the featured book is:
Katherine and Michael meet at a New Year's Eve party. They're attracted to each other, they grow to love each other. And once they've decided their love is forever, they make love. It's the beginning of an intense and exclusive relationship, with a future all planned. Until Katherine's parents insist that she and Michael put their love to the test with a summer apart...
I am so glad I read this book. Definitely one that needed to be read while I was still in high school. *face palm*
That blurb doesn't do this book justice, though. Yes, those things happen, but seriously? It's a story about The Difference.
What's The Difference, you ask?
Well, The Difference between thinking about what you want your life to be, and living it. Sometimes those two things gel well together. Sometimes, that's not the case.
But it all happens for a reason.
And that's why I loved this book. Doesn't matter if you're a teen or not, life surprises you. And there's nothing wrong with that as long as you learn.
Even if you can't stomach explicit sex scenes or touchy subjects (like depression), you should give this one a try. Plus, it's freakin' Judy Blume. If anyone deserves a chance, it's her.
Now tell me: what did you read this weekend??
