3 New Books About All-Consuming Teen Relationships
Those of us who have made it past our teens may look back on the relationships we formed then with a mixture of longing and relief. The connections we make in our teens, both platonically and romantically, can feel passionate, exhilarating, and overwhelming. This can be wonderful — how many people fondly reminisce about first love? — terrible, or both. Unfortunately, the emotional highs that come with being a teen are also accompanied by seemingly bottomless lows and poor decision-making. This week’s book club is all about those young attachments we form that can forever shape who we are.
