When he approaches her at the market, he has no idea the next three weeks of his life would change him forever.

It’s the late 1980s, summertime, on the North Shore of Long Island. The air stirs with possibilities as it often does during this time of year. And so begins the romance between one Hispanic seventeen-year-old male, on the verge of manhood and ready to conquer the world, and one beautiful and intelligent young woman named B.It is much more than romance, though. B will forever become a part of this young man’s soul. He will never forget her.

This is a coming-of-age story, a love story, replete with milestones, tangled emotions, and adventures that are the embodiments of first love. Not just for the young, but for the young at heart.

I try to always read reviews once I have my review written, so I am going back in and adding this in my review. One reviewer said “This book was okay. I just felt that the book was a bit too long.” I have NEVER EVER in my life read a book that I thought was too long. This book is 388 pages. No way on earth is that TOO LONG! But anyways..

I was hooked on this book not only from the first chapter, but before that, the description. I am a sucker for high school/first romance books, and romance books in general. The first chapter was amazing. It set the stage for the whole book for me. The way the author described the feelings that he was feeling at the supermarket. The writing in this book was really good. I look forward to reading more of Mr. Vega’s work!
