review 1: There are times as a definitely-not-young adult reader I feel the weight of my age separating me from fully appreciating a novel for young adults. Reading this book was absolutely one of those times. Actual teens, particularly those who might be contemplating their own sexuality, will probably be able to relate to the lead character to much greater degree, although thoughtful kids will be just as frustrated as this adult at the lead character's complete lack of insight. Phyre doesn't understand other people, she doesn't understand herself, and she repeatedly makes the same mistakes over and over without gaining the slightest benefit from the experience until the abrupt conclusion. A useful tool for young people looking for a starting place for thinking about issues rel... moreated to attraction but not a pleasure read.
review 2: This is just a hard style of writing to get into and that's really the reason I have ranked it low on my review. Now, with that said, I did like the fact that it let you in a way feel connected to the story line. You can try and mentally let yourself be the "You" character in the book and have the conversations with Phyre but even that can get complicated. I thought I might like the concept, but after a while, it just didn't work for me. I will say, it does deal with a lot of same sex issues and teacher-student issues so it is for a mature reader, but its very well handled. less
