3.5 stars While You're Away is part one in a six-part serial nov
While You're Away is part one in a six-part serial novel. It is very short and contains only six chapters, so it is really a quick read. Sarah Westcott has been with her boyfriend Dave since they first met when she was a freshman in high school. They are both musicians and play together, calling themselves Dasa. Dave is a great guy and Sarah loves him, but she also gets really frustrated with him after the play somewhere because he always is surrounded by girls, the center of attention, and likes to flirt, though he would never cheat on her. He's an all around great guy otherwise, but this one thing really grates on Sarah's nerves, though she tries not to let it show. Will Spencer is the schools hot boy who all the girls dream about. A former player, he is now the boyfriend of the girl whose house Sarah and Dave are playing at. They bump into each other there, get to talking, and one thing leads to another and Will and Sarah find themselves in each other's arms. The chemistry is electrifying between them, but the problem of each of them being involved with someone else is an issue. Nevertheless, they can't deny what they feel for one another, which causes quite a dilemma.
I normally don't go for cheating novels, but this is nothing like your typical cheating novel. First of all, they are in high school. Sarah has had one boyfriend who she is comfortable with and loves, but is she really in love? Dave has never made her heart pound or caused her to tingle and go weak in the knees, something just the sight of Will Spencer does. Will has a reputation as a player, but Sarah sees a different side of him, or at least she hopes she does, and she thinks he is really honest about the way he feels about her. The story is told from Sarah's point of view, so we really don't get to see what is going on inside Will's head. While You're Away Part One introduces you to the characters and sets the stage for the rest of the installments. It is really well written and captures your attention, while wetting your appetite as you look forward to the next course being served. So far, I've enjoyed it.
