For Natalie Miller, it’s just another family vacation. For someone else, it’s the opportunity he’s been waiting for.
With only a single peck from a guy named Frank, Natalie’s anything but experienced with boys. But when Todd pops out of the water, says hi, and tells Natalie he has leukemia, all of that changes.
She’s never had attention like this from a boy, let alone one who’s a real charmer with sex on the brain and the experience to match. Drawn to Todd like a magnet, Natalie gives him her friendship, her love, and her body. Even when she’s tempted by gorgeous, healthy schoolmate Alex, Natalie’s desire to love and care for Todd pushes her to see how far love can go in spite of the potential for death of the relationship — and death of the one she loves.
“Are you curious about what a real kiss is like?” He took his sunglasses off and sat with onelong leg up. If we ended up kissing, I couldn’t avoid looking at him anymore, and so I did. He hadfull lips, an angular face and strong nose. There was little hair on his arms. I thought that he musthave looked lovely with longer hair… or any hair for that matter.“What are you gonna do, show me?” I asked, putting my hands on my hips. He stood up fromthe rock, standing at least 6 feet tall, and came over to me, placing his hands around my face.“I’m a good teacher.” (page 17)
