This week I was kindly asked to write a guest blog for Liz over at the smashingly British, My Favourite Books. I wrote about the impact Forever by Judy Blume, had on me as a tween, a tween with exceedingly "square" tendencies. But more interestingly, from this guest blog, was the recommendation I received in the comments section. Luisa (the very Chicklish chickie) recommended that I get my hands on a specific title that I am now determined to get my hands on by hell or high water. Or maybe just purchase on Amazon, whatever is easier to conjure.
A Bad Boy Can Be Good For a Girl by Tanya Lee Stone
It's an oldie (relatively), published back in 2007 but I want it bad.
Josie, Nicolette and Aviva are three very different girls who all meet the same bad boy with an irresistible knack for getting into their blood and under their skin. Each is sure that she can keep a cool head about him, but how much are they really in control? A critical and word-of-mouth success in the US, this is a compulsive read that opens up the questions about love and sex that every girl needs to know.
What this description doesn't share is that Forever is a central part to the narrative. Hence the blatant gimme, gimme, gimme you've been hearing as you've read this post. It's four pounds which is probably sixty Australian dollars but me want, me want now (yes I lowered myself to referring to myself as me, thereby cementing my newly discovered level of pathetic).
