WEDNESDAY'S WISH I HAD THE TIME #5
BLOOM by Elizabeth Scott has been on my classroom shelf for over a year now. The girls are enjoying it, but I haven't had time to read it yet, so it is officially on my Wednesday's Wish I Had the Time list.
Here's a summary courtesy of Barnes & Noble:
There's a difference between falling and letting go.
Lauren has a good life: decent grades, great friends, and a boyfriend every girl lusts after. So why is she so unhappy? It takes the arrival of Evan Kirkland for Lauren to figure out the answer: She's been holding back. She's been denying herself a bunch of things (like sex) because staying with her loyal and gorgeous boyfriend, Dave, is the "right" thing to do. After all, who would give up the perfect boyfriend?
But as Dave starts talking more and more about their life together, planning a future Lauren simply can't see herself in — and as Lauren's craving for Evan, and moreover, who she is with Evan becomes all the more fierce — Lauren realizes she needs to make a choice...before one is made for her.
Have any of the rest of you read it?
