Such a great book. This novel was very realistic, which I enjoyed. Judy Blume did a great job, and I will defiantly re-read! An awesome quick, stay up late reading kind of book!

This book was great and really nice. A lot of learned lessons but am I the only person that actually cried at the end of the book. It was sad after everything they did together, it just ended. Like its just sad

A decent read, but this book is definitely better for teens (I am in my late 20s). The story goes at a good pace and has an overall message about relationships and intimacy in your teen years.

It has way more sex in it than I guessed. Lesson learned, chances are your first love won’t be forever.

An honest, realistic, sometimes awkward, and heartbreaking tale of first love. A classic that I can't believe I had never read before.

I can't believe I had never read this before. A true Judy Blume classic. Even though it was written decades ago, the story will still resonate with young teens (particular teen girls) today. I thought it was an honest and realistic portrayal, albeit with a sad ending.

I like the down to earth romance of the primary characters and the mutual respect they give each other. The ending was terrible, but the book is good if one omits the final chapter.

This book is very interesting and for me, relatable. It is quite informative on the topic of first love and first intimate moments with someone else. Judy Blume has done it again.

I first read this book in the eight grade, and reread it now, in my first year of university, to see how I interpreted it differently now that I've experienced many of the milestones discussed in the book. The beauty of the novel is the way the romance is very realistic and down to earth, very much unlike what you'd see in a romantic comedy. It will definitely help girls set realistic expectations and think about what they want. Overall, an easy, lazy read but one that will make you think and definitely remember your first love.
