Quote: from "Watcher" by Angela Johnshon -- introductory paragraphs:
I use to hang around Public Square and wathc the cars almost run one another off the street. If not there then the library off of East Ninth. I could spend a whole day there just wandering around. Room to room. Scuffing along the marble floors. I used to lose myself -- alone in the city.
Mostly I would people-watch.
Jacks talks about how she once almost got locked in the library. Ruth asks her if she could find anything -- just anything at all -- to do in the city of Cleveland other than almost getting locked in libraries.
She followed me.
This book sensitively and realistically covers issues such as deciding to remain a virgin, coming out to family and friends, what happens when you manipulate someone else and how do you know when someone is treating you with respect.
Lust, Desire, Fantasy, Obsession, Love In one outstanding volume, ten of today's finest authors of adult and young-adult literature lend teir talent and their vioces to take a hard, clear look at love and sexuality. From balancing abstinence and desire, to learning the difference between love and lust, to fulfilling a childhood obsession, each of these stories depicts characters exploring a world of new feelings and sensations that is opening up before them.
