and the winner is...

It was the beach where I’d had sex for the first time. I was seventeen and we weren’t in love. I think the worst part was that we both knew it. I walked home, alone, and found sand in places I didn’t even know I’d had. When I stayed in my room for a million days, my family assumed I’d gotten too much sun. An entire week passed before I crawled out of bed to find Wes at my doorstep. It was with him that I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.

I love how raw and real it feels, and the last line gave me chills!

Lynn(e) send me an email with your address, and I'll send you your copy of Invincible Summer!
