I sure do! It was passed around from girlfriend to girlfriend when I was in Junior High. To refresh your memory, this is the story of a teenaged couple and their mutual deflowering.
As it turns out, this was a groundbreaking book. For the first time, a “first time” was thoughtfully portrayed in adolescent literature. Katherine and Michael are in love and ready for sex.
What sets this book apart is how Katherine thoughtfully approaches her first time, confiding in her mother, getting birth control and making love in a safe place. Michael does not pressure her into her decision, they decide together.
It provides an example of how to have a great first experience and clearly includes all the things I think make up a great first time.
Here’s the link to Amazon – pick up a copy for your favorite teen. But read it again yourself before you pass it along. http://tinyurl.com/foreverjb
