Book Description: From the day Elsie’s big brother brought his friend Kye McBride over to
their house, Elsie adored him. When she was eight she secretly blew
kisses to him. When she was twelve she sat on the stairs, unnoticed, and
watched him escort another girl to prom. When she was a senior in high
school, she walked into math class and found out he was her new math
With that much emotion fueling her, things were bound to
go wrong. And they did. Elsie not only spent the last two weeks of
school avoiding him, she turned avoiding-Kye-at-all-costs into her
Now three years have passed and Elsie has
come home for her brother’s wedding. She’s got to face Kye-–hopefully
without getting crushed again.
My Review: There is something about Janette Rallison's stories that I just LOVE!! They're clean, fun, and absolutely adorable.
I loved Kye. He was kind and a real gentleman, even when he was a teenager. Elsie is a typical girl--pretty insecure about herself and always scheming up ways to get the guy to notice her.
This story had the potential to be creepy in a creeper-ish sort of way, not a horror story way, but wasn't at all. Kye is a few years older than Elsie and at one point, was her math teacher. Of course, being the guy that Kye is, nothing much happened during that time.
My only complaint with this one is that it was way too short!! When I find an author or a story I really love, I just don't want it to end and this one was more of a novella, so it was really too short for me. It is definitely worth the .99 if you're a Janette Rallison fan.
Content: an almost attack; kissing.
