I loved this book.  Tara and her friends get into some situations that every girl should know how to keep herself out of.  Growing up is hard and peer pressure is something we all go through. Tara has to fight to stick to what her mom and dad taught her and not get caught up in feelings.  Its not easy to do and when everyone else is doing it too, you begin to think its okay.  I really like how Tara dares to be different.

This book was hard to find and I looked in all the stores, ended up buying it online.  But, its worth the wait.  Everyone should read it. Happy reading.

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.

Tara is someone that I could like, if she went to my school.  She has some great friends and she tells it like it is. I love books that let you feel like your a part of the story and this does. Its like all the stuff that happens to her or her friends could happen to you or your friends. I just hope if it does, I can handle it like she does. I'm in no rush to start dating. My sister read this first and thought I should read it too.  I think everyone should.

When your new to dating, everything seems exciting, but it can also be scary.  Tara experiences her first love and realizes she is in over her head.  Some of her friends have already made big mistakes that can't be taken back and she almost does the same.  This is a book I think all girls should read, and some boys.  No, means no. Not all of us can talk to our mom's about this stuff, or we just don't want to.  This book has some great advice, and its not preachy either. Its a little hard to purchase though, I couldn't find it in any regular stores yet, but the wait wasn't that long ordering it online. Its worth the wait.

Great Book, all the romance and drama, and no vampires....I loved it. Tara and her friends get themselves into some situations everyone should know how to avoid. Some good lessons learned and hopefully I'll never have a stalker like Dylan. Definitely waiting for the next one to come out. I recommend this to everyone, especially girls that are dating or getting ready to start dating. Even though I've been dating a while now, I learned a few things I didn't know.

I loved the characters. They remind me of my friends. Lots of romance and drama. There is so much going on in each chapter it keeps you wanting to read more. A real page turner. I'm happy there is another book to go with this and from the website looks like it might be out soon, but it doesn't say. I'll be waiting to get it,  to find out what Tara does next.

Great Book.  Its a must read for anyone that likes romance novels or series books.  I can't wait for the next one to get released. I read Forever a long time ago and it reminded me of that, only more today.  Definitely a must read for any girl.  My mom liked it too.

This book is one of the best books that I have read in a long time. Since I don't talk to my mom a lot about some things, this book helped a lot. It helped me to learn about things that I had questions about. I also have a better idea of how to ask my mom about any other questions i have. I wish I could thank this shari in person for this. Wonderful book!!!

OMG! THIS BOOK IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. WHEN I GO INTO THE 7TH GRADE THIS YEAR I WANT TO TELL MY ENGLISH TEACHER ABOUT THIS BOOK. I THINK IT WAS GREAT FOR ME TO LEARN ABOUT ROMANCE AND ABOUT THE THINGS THAT CAN HAPPEN. MY MOMMA TOLD ME ABOUT SOME OF THAT STUFF BUT NOT ENOUGH FOR ME TO UNDERSTAND. I AM SO GLAD THAT THIS BOOK WAS WROTE.
