Before this all happened, the closest I'd ever come to getting physical with a guy was playing the board game Operation. Okay, so maybe that sounds pathetic, but it's not like there were any guys at my high school who I cared to share more than three words with, let alone my body.
Then I met Wes, a track star senior from across town. Maybe it was his soulful blue eyes, or maybe my hormones just started raging. Either way, I was hooked. And after a while, he was too. I couldn't believe how intense my feelings became, or the fact that I was seeing—and touching—parts of the body I'd only read about in my Gray's Anatomy textbook. You could say Wes and I experienced a lot of firsts together that spring. It was scary. It was fun. It was love.
And then came the fall.
“How is it that mankind can engineer condoms to prevent pregnancy and STDs and not be able to invent some sort of emotional safeguard? Is it even possible to abstain from falling in love?”
Hilarious! This book was full of so many laugh at loud moments, which is exactly what I was craving!
For some reason, during the Winter season I chose that time to read more of my "Heavier" books. Those novels with the heavier, sadder, more intense stories. I love a novel with a deep topic, but after so many in a row, I start to feel like I have a black cloud over my head! As soon as I started getting that feeling, I turned to Anatamy of a Boyfriend. "Okay, Daria Snadowsky, take me out of my funk!" And that she did! She penned a hilarious yet very realistic novel!
This book seems to be getting some negative feedback because it talks about Teen Sex...*Spoiler Alert* Teens have sex! Now that that's out of the way, lets talk about how truly awesome this book really was.
The characters: I saw so much of my personality in Dom. I always seemed to be the "one in the dark" when I was a teenager, while I had those friends that knew it all, and did it all.
It realistic! Like I said before, the author not only crafted realistic characters, but a very real storyline. From the very beginning when Dom firsts lays eyes on Wes, to the very last page. I'm sure many of us can relate!
This book was everything I hoped it would be and more! It gave me the reading experience I was craving. I can't wait to devour it's sequel Anatamy of a Single Girl.
