Review: Opposite of Innocent

The Opposite of Innocent

Lily has a crush - and he's finally returning after two years away. Maybe he'll notice how much she's changed. She's grown; she's now 14. Luke isn't some random guy. She's over the moon when she learns he'll be staying with them for a bit. Could he be interested in her too?
My Thoughts: This novel is verse was hard to read because of the subject matter, but it's an important story. Luke isn't just your average crush. He's her father's best friend and twice her age. There's a thriller of a older man finding you attractive that gives you a rush as a teenager. 

This is a first love story that's icky.

Lily begins a relationship with Luke. He pressures her. She's na├»ve but looses her innocence and begins to understand what he friends have been telling her all along.  
I loved the ending.  It's a powerful story.

Cover Thoughts: Cute

Library Recommendation: Grab this one for both public and school libraries - there are teen girls who will need this book.
