"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."
 Ms.Scott is another author I love to read! Her books are always life changing and have something significant you can always take away from. In this book., we the reader, discover Lauren. A teenager who is looking for something more. Aren't we not?

I loved the characters in this book. I like how real Lauren is. I like how she wants more to her life than what she is living now. I think we need to make mistakes in order to get to the place where we need to be. To grow not only in life but in ourselves. As Lauren begins to see that, her life is being map out for her, she breaks out of it, saying what she wants. I loved that Lauren is strong enough to say no and to say what she wants instead of going with the crowd.

The plot line of this book is good. I like how Lauren grew before the readers eyes and became more. I can say that she "Bloomed" into herself. As the plot line goes deeper into the story, we see other things bloom in front of Lauren eyes. She learns more about relationships and what they really mean. Even her father is a little surprised of how quickly his daughter grew to be mature young woman.

I like this book cause of the growth in it. Lauren learns so much and isn't who she thought she is. She is more and wants more. Ms.Scott wrote an great coming of age story about a girl who blooms into herself.

I give it 3 BITES!

Happy Reading!
