Sharon Dever on the New Young-Adult Literature
“Eighteen,” the girl crooned.
“I thought you said you were a junior?”
“So I flunked.”
Wet kisses and lots of heavy breathing followed. Except for Fran’s heavy breathing, the car was silent.
“Have you done this before?” Coach Sager muttered.
“Yeah, this afternoon.”
“Some jerk on your team.”
. . . Clothes rustled and stretched through the car’s speakers. Zippers slowly pulled down. This was soo bitchin’!
“Let me do that.” The girl sighed. “Oh, that’s nice. Oh, I like that.”
Sharon Dever is a homeschooling mother of two living in Austin, Texas.
