In ANATOMY OF A BOYFRIEND, author Daria Snadowsky examines first love, sex, and relationships among two teens.

Dominique, a high school senior with dreams of becoming a doctor, meets and quickly develops a relationship with Wes, another senior who attends a different school in town. Things quickly become hot and heavy for the two inexperienced teens, until fall, when they decide to attend colleges on opposite sides of the country. Thus, their feelings for one another change, and they're forced to reevaluate their relationship.

Very similar in plot and character to Judy Blume's young adult classic FOREVER..., Snadowsky still manages to find a unique point of view in her story through Dom. The readers take an adventure with Dom as she discovers many new adult experiences, and feels what it's like to truly love for the first time.

The book provides a very frank look at sex, and can sometimes be very graphic. However, with all of the candidness, the book stands out from other young adult novels that glaze over the reality of high school relationships without really exploring them.

ANATOMY OF A BOYFRIEND is an honest gem that will provide readers with a sincere and at times painful portrayal of adolescent life.

It was a very good book. I couldnt put it down. Though it is very explicit at times. But I personally loved it and would recommend it to my friends and family.

It was an interesting read. As a young adult novel, I thought it to be a tad too detailed. But it was good nonetheless.
