Thank you so much for your kind words-- it means so much to me that you loved the book (and Mercedes)! Firsts was planned as a standalone, so I don't have any immediate plans for a sequel, but I'd never say never! I really enjoyed writing these characters, and spending more time in their heads would probably be a lot of fun!
Thanks again for reading! (less)

Thanks so much for sharing, and for having that reaction to FIRSTS! :) I appreciate your kind words, and also, welcome to the Sweet Sixteens!

I wouldn't say I got any flack for writing FIRSTS, but I knew it was going to be a risky book that might evoke criticism. I was nervous when I queried and nervous on submission, but luckily for me, I ended up with a whole team of fearless people who believe in the book and are willing to push boundaries. I think you need to have a thick skin as a writer, and that's the mentality I held onto-- I wrote the book I needed to write, not the book I thought would sell. Yes, having to explain the subject matter to elderly family members was a bit awkward... but I'm blown away at the level of support people have shown me and so, so grateful.

Quotes by Laurie Elizabeth Flynn  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Virginity is supposed to be something a girl gives up only when she is ready and feels comfortable, something a girl discusses at length with her friends and flip-flops over a million times in her mind before actually doing it. A guy is expected to be born ready.

But what I realized after Tommy is that they're not. They're just as scared as their girlfriends, maybe even more so because the onus is on them to be gentle, make it last, make it memorable. And most of them haven't a clue.”
Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, Firsts

“I want to be just fast enough for Zach to have to run to catch up, because if I stay ahead, I won't ever have to see his retreating back.”
Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, Firsts

“I feel fragile, like if somebody looked at me the wrong way I might shatter into a million pieces and never be whole again.”
Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, Firsts
