"If it had been any other day, I would have given him a straight answer, but I was still seething over the fight with my father. I had been a good girl -- more or less -- my whole life, and what had it gotten me? A seat on the perimeter of life."
Michael's nice, he's attentive - and he's older. Nearly ten years older. Dating him breaks many of her parents' rules, and living in "a small town where almost everyone knows most everything about each other" means that their relationship has to be kept secret.
How It's Done by Christine Kole MacLean is about far more than this relationship. It is about changing, about questioning your beliefs, about realizing who you are and what you can become. The book toes the line tastefully when discussing adult situations, religion, and responsibility. Recommended for older teens.
