Grade 7-10 Reit takes her readers on a realistic, uncomfortable trip through a girl's first infatuation with a boy. Gwen is a typical teenager, dating the boy next door, envying her older sister (who married at 18 and had a baby at 19), and conscious of all of her personal flaws. She meets Jack, who offers her spontaneous fun and excitement. Unfortunately, he's also prone to disappearing for long periods of time, leaving her with self doubts and fears. Their relationship sends her emotions on a roller coaster ride. In the end, Gwen has to decide what she wants for herself and what she would have to give up to date irresponsible Jack. The message is clear, but not overdone, making this a fine novel about great expectations and realities of first love. Judie Porter, Media Services Center, Portsmouth School Department, R.I.
