** spoiler alert ** I was already in love with this series, but now with the detailed, realistic and no-regrets teenaged first sex! This is edgier, more contemporary and relevant to teens than anything of its ilk being published today, at least in the U.S.

The only part I didn't really like was the Harvey's Heroes bit. I suppose we need an enemy with a face to carry us forward for the next five books, but the whole setup with his camp was so over-the-top and hokey.

It kills me that the editions we carry in the library are so ugly and dated. With sexier covers, these would be such an easy sell.
