Bloom by Elizabeth Scott
Today's book is going to be Bloom by Elizabeth Scott! The description of this book is:
Lauren has a good life: decent grades, great friends, and a boyfriend every girl wants. So why is she so unhappy?
It takes the arrival of Evan Kirkland for Lauren to figure out the answer: she's been holding back. She's been denying herself a bunch of things (like sex) because staying with her loyal and gorgeous boyfriend, Dave, is the "right" thing to do. After all, who would give up the perfect guy?
But as Dave starts talking more and more about their life together, planning a future Lauren simply can't see herself in-- and as Lauren's craving for Evan, and moreover, who she is with Evan becomes all the more fierce--Lauren realizes she needs to make a choice...before one is made for her.
I loved this book as soon as I read the first chapter! Lauren is like me in the sense that she loves to read! I loved her quote: "I love books. I like that the moment you open one and sink into it you can escape from the world, into a story that's way more interesting than yours will ever be." This quote is so true! Anyway, the plot to this book was great. A lot of teens will be able to relate to Lauren and her parents situation. This book had a great love story and a lot of family issues. I'd say Bloom is one of Elizabeth Scott's best books! This book brings a lot of elements to the story and if you're looking for a fast paced read and a great story this is for you! Hope you guys enjoy :]
