About the Author:

Alice Jacoby, a native New Yorker, is a graduate of the School of Industrial Art, Brooklyn College, Columbia University, and New York University. She was a college English teacher, a young adult librarian for The New York and Brooklyn Public Libraries, and a high school librarian before becoming a full-time writer. She lives in New York City and is currently working on a second novel and a short story collection.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7 Up Fifteen-year-old Laurie has led a typical metropolitan teenager's life until her widowed mother falls in love with 27-year-old Blue. Over Laurie's objections, handsome, rootless Blue moves into their apartment. Alternately attracted and repulsed, Laurie is unable to define her problem. Is Blue touching her too much, or is he just trying to be nice? Jacoby does convey a great deal of useful information about a type of sexual abuse, and readers will become aware of several solutions for themselves or their friends should they find themselves in the same situation. Positive role models are provided through a supportive neighboring family. There's more message here than story, but characterization is strong and the writing is good. Jacoby makes it very clear that if someone loves you, he cares about your feelings and welfare and that any kind of touching is wrong if it makes you uncomfortable. Cindy Darling Codell, Belmont Junior High School, Winchester, Ky.
