Seventeen-year-old Katherine meets Michael at a party. The two of them like each other immediately, and soon fall in love - but are they ready to take their relationship to the next level?


This frank and honest story of first love, first sex and first heartbreak caused controversy in America when it was first published in 1976. Judy Blume wrote the book in response to the thousands of letters she received from teenagers complaining that adults told them nothing about sex and relationships. Today's teenagers may find it significantly less provocative, but it deservedly retains its status as a young adult classic amongst contemporary readers. Blume deals responsibly and sensitively with her subject matter, and it remains an engaging and thought-provoking exploration of the ups and downs of teenage love.
