I was sort of wary on this book before i checked it out at my school library. I opened it to read the first poem briefly and immediately checked it out! i didnt get around to starting it until 4th period spanish class after our test. i read the whole book cover to cover in 40 minutes!! it immediately became my new favorite book! it is an incredible read!

Positive, uncanny, refreshing and I CAN [DO IT], are the first words that jump to mind as I read Ms. Wayland's poems, private journal entries, novel --This book fits each category. I now have a new view of my own pre-teen and teenage years, long forgotten first events blurred into mostly murky lump came alive. PLUS-- my teenage son feels he read the new code book on girls. This book is for daughters, mothers, fathers and sons-- an intimate 'experience' to share.
