...face. Finally she said, "Wonderful ... glowing ... " "Oh, Grandma ... people don't really glow ... that's such a silly expression." "What do you mean people don't really glow? Of course they do. Don't be embarrassed ... it's very becoming." She looked across the table at Grandpa. "Doesn't she glow, Ivan?" "To me, Katherine always glows," Grandpa said slowly. "It must be love," Grandma said. I could tell I was blushing, even though I didn't want to. Grandpa raised his water glass. "To love ... " he said. Grandma clinked her glass against his. To love ... " After dessert, Grandma and I went to the Ladies' Room. I thought about telling her that I have a 3:00 appointment at the Margaret Sanger Clinic. I knew she'd be pleased.

good enough
i have heard that alot of people found this book was not that good. To me it was however the climax was rushed making it not really a climax overall the book was good enough, i loved that Judy blume based the book on relationship and sex as i am a teenager as well i found this book as a guilty pleasure in a way, i did wish dat katherine and michael did end up together forever though,the book was a bit boring but i think Judy Blume was trying to make it as realistic as possible which she did acheive, it like a basic teenager's life.

"I love your hair," Michael whispered, burying his face in it. "It always smells so good."-He kissed my ears, my neck and my lips. Then he got up and walked across the room. "Lie down next to me, Kath ... here, in front of the fire." This was the fifth week in a row we'd seen each other. I'd asked him to go slow with me and he promised he would. I stretched out beside him. I felt his body against mine. He reached under my sweater and tried to unhook my bra but he had a lot of trouble and I wondered if I should help him out or just lie still and wait. He got it undone. His hands were cold at first but I didn't flinch. I pressed myself as tight against him as I could..

He didn't pressure me. He kissed my cheek, then my ear, and whispered, "Are you a virgin?" No boy had ever come right out and asked me that--not even Tommy Aronson. I told Michael, "Yes, I am ... does it matter?" "No ... but it's better if I know." "Well, now you know." "Don't get defensive, Katherine. It's nothing to be ashamed of." "I'm not ashamed." "Okay then ... let's just forget it. I like you just the same. I like being with you." "I like being with you too."
