I’ve been instructed by Kym, YA romance book expert, that I really must put Bloom by Elizabeth Scott on the list. Something else on the list has to go, no arguments. I thought I’m not going to be a pushover and do exactly what she says, so I’ll just have it as a late addition, a number 11 or perhaps a 10 and three quarters or whatever.
So, to Bloom, which is news to me. If you’re into Sarah Dessen or Deb Caletti you might like Elizabeth Scott (apparently, so says Google Books). Like Macy in The Truth About Forever, Lauren is in a solid relationship with Dave, and the arrival of Evan causes her to rethink her life and her impulse to do the “right thing” in the quest for being perfect. I’m thinking that, like Robert Frost (‘The Road Not Taken’), she’ll “take the road less traveled by” and that “will make all the difference.”
