Description

An utterly authentic story of first (and second and third) love, told in accessible free verse and featuring a new cover and larger trim size.

It’s not that I'm boy crazy.

It’s just that even though

I’m almost fifteen

I’ve been having sort of a hard time

trying to figure out the difference

between love and lust.

It’s like

my mind

and my body

and my heart

just don’t seem to be able to agree

on anything.

Get to know Sophie, a freshman in high school who’s struggling through the daily grind and all the crushes that come with it, as she shares her innermost thoughts and feelings in this remarkably relatable novel in verse from Sonya Sones.
