"Curious teens will find Snadowsky's honesty refreshing, and like Judy Blume's] Forever before it, this book] is sure to be passed from hand to hand."--BooklistAfter everything that happened--my first boyfriend, my first time, my first breakup--jumping back into the dating game seemed like the least healthy thing I could do. It's not that I didn't want to fall in love again, since that's about the best feeling ever. But as a busy college premed still raw from heartbreak, which is the worst feeling ever, I figured I'd lie low for a while. Of course, as soon as I stopped looking for someone, an impossibly amazing--and devastatingly cute--guy came along, and I learned that having a new boyfriend is the quickest way to recover from losing your old one.
The moment we got together, all my preconceptions about romance and sex were turned upside down. I discovered physical and emotional firsts I never knew existed. I learned to let go of my past by living in the present. It was thrilling. It was hot. It was just what the doctor ordered.
But I couldn't avoid my future forever.
