With Judy Blume-like honesty and insight, this sequel to "Anatomy of a Boyfriend" is about life after first love--romance, sex, friendship, family, and the ups and downs of life as a single girl. After everything that happened--my first boyfriend, my first time, my first breakup--jumping back into the dating game seemed like the least healthy thing I could do. It's not that I didn't "want" to fall in love again, since that's about the best feeling ever. But as a busy college premed still raw from heartbreak, which is the "worst" feeling ever, I figured I'd lie low for a while. Of course, as soon as I stopped looking for someone, an impossibly amazing--and devastatingly cute--guy came along, and I learned that having a new boyfriend is the quickest way to recover from losing your old one. The moment we got together, all my preconceptions about romance and sex were turned upside down. I discovered physical and emotional firsts I never knew existed. I learned to let go of my past by living in the present. It was thrilling. It was "hot." It was just what the doctor ordered. But I couldn't avoid my future forever. In Daria Snadowsky's daring follow-up to "Anatomy of a Boyfriend, " eighteen-year-old Dominique explores the relationship between love and lust, and the friendships that see us through. "Curious teens will find Snadowsky's honesty refreshing, and like [Judy Blume's] "Forever "before it, this one is sure to be passed from hand to hand." --"Booklist " "The book presents a multiplicity of opinions and stories about sex, intimacy and relationships and lets readers come to their own conclusions." --"Kirkus Reviews" "Dominique is a strong female character who makes informed decisions and demonstrates control over her own body and goals. . . . This book could be popular with girls who are curious and interested in reading about intimate young adult relationships." --"VOYA " "Written in an unflinchingly candid style, Daria Snadowsky's "Anatomy of a Single Girl" is an addictive contemporary read." "An honest, warts-and-all account of late teen relationships, and it's unflinching and absorbing." "Snadowsky knows how to write women--strong, flawed women who are open to discovering their bodies and what makes them feel good. (Whether it's science or sex.)" "[The "Anatomy" books] could demystify sex for teenaged girls in a way that neither encourages abstinence nor promiscuity, and for that it should be on the shelves of every household." "Daria Snadowsky is excellent at writing the awkward teenager. . . . Honest and so realistic." "Any girl who has ever had [her] heart broken can and will relate to the events taking place in this book." "From the Hardcover edition."show more
