About the publication
Ashleigh Walker is in love. You know the feeling - that intense, heart-racing, all-consuming emotion that can only come with first love. It's enough to stop her worrying about bad grades at college. Enough to distract her from her parents' marriage troubles. There's just one thing bothering her... Shouldn't it be her boyfriend, Dylan, who makes her feel this way - not Miss Murray, her English teacher?
Bestselling author Liz Kessler's first YA novel is a compelling coming of age story about one girl's exploration of love, identity and sexuality.
What I have always loved about her writing is her ability to connect emotionally with her characters and this really shines through here. Ashleigh is a flawed, real teenager on a wholly believable quest to explore her identity and sexuality.The Bookseller
