A great book and a must read for anyone starting to date. For me, this book was inspiring and made me think. I wish I could have read this when I was younger and just started dating, not that 19 is old. But my mom wouldn't talk about so many of the topics covered, which many parents out there may not like, thus controversial. I don't think it was so explicit it should get banned, but there may be parents that don't like it, so read it while you can. I really think for girls out there who have parents that won't talk to them or just can't, this book is for them. Adults should read it too. Maybe it will help them talk to their kids.
The characters are true and seem real, which is so important. I've read so many books that I just couldn't believe, but this one I could. I highly recommend this book and even if I'm too old to be called a young adult, I'll be reading the next one in the series too.
