When you build up something in your mind -- really imagine it, wish for it -- sometimes, when it actually happens, it doesn't live up to your expectations. True love is nothing like that. Especially not for Katherine and Michael, who can't get enough of each other. Their relationship is unique: sincere, intense, and fun all at the same time. Although they haven't been together all that long, they know it's serious. A whole world opens up as young passion and sexuality bloom. But it's senior year of high school, and there are big changes ahead. Michael and Katherine are destined for another big "first": a decision. Is this the love of a lifetime, or the very beginning of a lifetime of love?

Such a great book. This novel was very realistic, which I enjoyed. Judy Blume did a great job, and I will defiantly re-read! An awesome quick, stay up late reading kind of book!

This book was great and really nice. A lot of learned lessons but am I the only person that actually cried at the end of the book. It was sad after everything they did together, it just ended. Like its just sad

A decent read, but this book is definitely better for teens (I am in my late 20s). The story goes at a good pace and has an overall message about relationships and intimacy in your teen years.

It has way more sex in it than I guessed. Lesson learned, chances are your first love won’t be forever.

The obsession of first love was very accurate, but the ease with which she climax during sex is completely unrealistic, especially at that age. It would be very unfortunate if girls think that's what is supposed to happen.

An honest, realistic, sometimes awkward, and heartbreaking tale of first love. A classic that I can't believe I had never read before.

I can't believe I had never read this before. A true Judy Blume classic. Even though it was written decades ago, the story will still resonate with young teens (particular teen girls) today. I thought it was an honest and realistic portrayal, albeit with a sad ending.

I like the down to earth romance of the primary characters and the mutual respect they give each other. The ending was terrible, but the book is good if one omits the final chapter.

This book is very interesting and for me, relatable. It is quite informative on the topic of first love and first intimate moments with someone else. Judy Blume has done it again.
