Uses for Boys by Erica Lorraine Scheidt
Expected Publication: January 15, 2013
From an extraordinary new YA talent comes a debut novel about a girl who turns to boys—until she finally learns to lean on herself.Anna remembers a time before boys, when she was little and everything made sense. When she and her mom were a family, just the two of them against the world. But now her mom is gone most of the time, chasing the next marriage, bringing home the next stepfather. Anna is left on her own—until she discovers that she can make boys her family. From Desmond to Joey, Todd to Sam, Anna learns that if you give boys what they want, you can get what you need. But the price is high—the other kids make fun of her; the girls call her a slut. Anna's new friend, Toy, seems to have found a way around the loneliness, but Toy has her own secrets that even Anna can't know.Then comes Sam. When Anna actually meets a boy who is more than just useful, whose family eats dinner together, laughs, and tells stories, the truth about love becomes clear. And she finally learns how it feels to have something to lose—and something to offer. Real, shocking, uplifting, and stunningly lyrical, Uses for Boys is a story of breaking down and growing up.
Why I'm Waiting?
It rocks my world and more. It's simple, yet sexy and sweet and it just makes me want to grab the book and just devour it whole.
It's nothing I've ever encountered. Instead of the boy using girls, its the girl using boys. That along caught my attention and I knew, just knew, that I must must must read this book.
