    Do Read!

    I find this book to be a highly diverting read. The emotions of this teenage boy come out agonizingly clear. It brings back memories of being 17.

    Wonderful but hard to read

    I love this hilarious account of a 17-year-old boy falling in love in the early 1900s, but the free edition was full of typos and there were whole paragraphs that were illegible. I would recommend another edition.

    Alana: Seventeen year old girl

    A beautiful girl lays on her bed, wearing a small push up pink br<ph>a that barely covers her huge double d's. She has tan skin, plump pink lips, and wearing a pink thong. She waits, looking around. Her long blond hair sways down her back and her ice blue eyes dart around. One strap falls lightly. The second slips down, too. Alana waits some more. (Her bio is at result five)
