First Love (Short Story) by Valerie O’Brien



My rating:  4  of  5  stars

(by Amazon)

A story of love and loss. Leda falls in love for the first time with Kevin. They have different backgrounds, but they live in the same neighborhood. When Leda becomes pregnant with Kevin’s child, her life changes forever.



My Opinion

This short story is about Leda experiencing her first love. It is also about a teenager’s perception of what her mother might think or do.

This is a work of fiction – and despite that I had the real non-fictional wish to help Leda.

  2. As long as the story’s good, I’m in. I love “first time” books and I may actually pick up a copy because I grew up reading this kind of stuff. Call me sentimental!
