The Truth About Breaking the Seal
Everybody's high school experience is different, but one thing's the same: cashing in the V-card is a big deal.Some teens are ready to get it over with, while some are a little more selective. (I'm thinking of Cher in Clueless: "You see how picky I am about my shoes, and they only go on my feet.")In The Truth About Letting Go, main character Ashley decides she's ready to "break the seal" as she and her friends call it.She's always been a loner, live and let live type, but since her dad died, she's become more adventurous. One reviewer said she turns into the "female bad-boy." It's true.Colt is Mr. Sex on Wheels, and there are several times when she's ready to go with him. The problem is, he does something... unexpected on their first date, and Ashley doesn't trust him.Jordan's her man, and she's it for him.
Sleeping with Ashley is Jordan's fantasy come to life, and their make-out sessions are H-O-T! But Jordan's playing it safe as well, and he knows that Ashley's acting out. He's also got a big decision he's struggling with, and staying with her could change his plans. So they have to decide...I've thought about this question a lot since finishing the book, and I wonder what the majority of readers would say.Would you want a character to abandon everything for The One? We advise girls not to do this all the time. Don't follow your boyfriend to college, don't give up your career for a guy...Should the same rule apply to guys? I'd love to hear what you think!Thanks for having me here today, and happy reading!
