Nyla West was a freshmen at James Taylor High. When Chase Donovan, a six feet tall popular basketball player, says, "What's up?" to her in the hallway, it was love at first sight. Well, at least for Nyla anyways.

Just when things were getting hot and heavy, Nyla and Chase's mothers tell them they can't see each other anymore because they're cousins.

Chase refuses to fall for it and continues to pursue Nyla anyways. Nyla gets pregnant and her mother wants her to do the unthinkable but Nyla has her heart dead set against it. That is until she finds out that she's not the only one with child.

There are so many good reviews on this novel, and I honestly can't understand it. Sure, this book could be good for young teens to read and then discuss with their parents, but the writing style of this novel was the biggest turn off for me. It's very short, and as a result feels very rushed. The characters were flat and unmemorable, and I found myself constantly checking my progress through the novelette to see how close I was to finishing. If the author had put more effort into fleshing out the characters and making them (especially Nyla and her mother) seem more realistic, maybe this book would have had more of an impact. Without that, the message falls flat, lost to the lacking prose and flat characters.

Good read

This was a good book. It is one I think all young ladies should read then have a discussion with there mom afterwards. Nyla was like any other young girl that has their first love. I enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it.

This is was an ok read, I just wish it was a little longer. The author touched on, how kids think they know better than the parent but, in reality they don't. There were two parents trying to protect hearts from being broken. Nyla though that Chase loved her but, he proved her thoughts wrong. I actually felt sorry for Nyla at one point. it took some years but, Nyla was able to realize that Chase doing her the way he did, was for the best. Chase has a wife, kids, and they were still living with his mom.

Straight To The Point

Great book to give adolescents girls going through hormonal changes and thinking they're experiencing true love while sacrificing themselves. Short but with all of the details necessary to make a point.

A good story and cautionary tale for young girls...Moms know best. She should have listened to her mom.

I don't want to spoil the story, but I think the young woman should have owned up to her mistakes and responsibilities and kept her child. Sorry, but I didn't agree with the abortion.

Could've been better!

The book was OK, but it seemed really rushed. Also, it didn't have a lot of depth. It really could've been better.

Ugh, this book about teenagers read like a teenager wrote it, which is probably more realistic but is super annoying as an adult woman to read. I don't understand the mothers deciding to tell the kids that they were cousins, when they weren't? I'm still unsure. Maybe talk to the girl about how the boy already knocked up some other girl. I just can't with this book.

Great read for teens

Read this one young people, and believe me it can happen to you. First love is hard and can break your heart. Parents do know some things, they been through some stuff to. So listen to your parents if only to hear what they say. We always hope you can think for yourself. 4 out of 5 stars cause book was a little to short.

Nice Teen Novella

I didn't know this was a teen novel when I started reading it. It was a cute novella that I would give to a niece or granddaughter. Wish there was a little more to the story.

Good read

This story had a very good storyline but I wish it was longer. More teenagers need to read this book. If a guy ask you to do something that will cause you to do something wrong he’s no good for you.

Lesson learned. There are times when our parents are the last people we want to hear, but listen. Our parents are there for more reasons than we know.

Great read for young girls

This is great for young girls who are becoming interested in boys for the first time. Eye opening for them to see the pros and cons of being sexual active. As well as the thought process from both angles.

Quick read

Good read. Moral of the story? Mother's are always right. Listen to your parents bc they may have been down that road before and they are trying to save you the heartache
