I Wish I’d Read This When I Was a Teen: Ellen Wittlinger’s Hard Love (2017 Reading Book #71)

This was one of the books John Green said was very influential to him early on in his writing career. I can definitely see how it might have impacted novels of his like Looking for Alaska and Will Grayson, Will Grayson. I really loved this novel for a number of reasons. I...
