Jumping Off Swings by Jo Knowles
August 11, 2009
(No cover yet.)
Tells, from four points of view, the ramifications of a pregnancy resulting from a "one-time thing" between Ellie, who feels loved when boys touch her, and Josh, an eager virgin with a troubled home life.
I liked Jo Knowles first book, Lessons From A Dead Girl, it was disturbing but strong and very interesting. She had a great writing style and her characters were interesting. This one sounds really interesting and, again, disturbing. Disgusting? Maybe. But it sounds really good and I can't wait for August 11th.
Edit: Geesh, could I have said 'interesting' one more time?
