    1 thought on “First Time

    1. This book felt like it was written from a lecture-y adult. Tilly tried to hard to use teen slang: 'I didn't want to piss on her parade.". And though her book was about sexual abuse, she never really cut to the chase. The topic was always there in the back, not to be touched quite yet. She paced around the topic through way too many ways: the too old boyfriend, the creepy boyfriend, the overbearing yet underbearing mother.I don't know, maybe I read it too fast. But to be honest, I was just trying [...]

    2. I liked it. it was a good book. parts of it was funny. I thought that chad would have used Lily. but it turns out that he ended up really liking her. Hailey was pretty smart and funny. the book was to short. they should have made it where Hailey told her mom about Larry. and her mom had him charged and dumped him. I liked Hailey. she was my fave.

    3. This book is about a girl named Haley. Haley has a mom who is divorced and is dating another man. Haley does not mind this, but this man is always acting a little weird. Then one day the mad comes into her room, pushes her onto the floor and molests her. He tells her that it is her own fault. He says that she invited him in and was sending her singles. Haley does not believe this of course. Yes she invited him in, but not like that. But Haley is afraid for her live and does not tell her mother. [...]

    4. 3.5 starsWe see a stark contrast between Lynn, whose teenage hormones have her giggly and wanting experiment sexually but still afraid to act as an adult vs. Haley whose mom's creepy lawyer boyfriend molests her. Haley is obviously the adult one in the friendship, and this quick read addresses the fear and flashbacks associated with hiding something so awful. I picked this book up because (well, because it was short) I wanted to see if it would provoke any memories or PTSD symptoms. I know 900% [...]

    5. Reviewed by Margaret Waterman for TeensReadTooFIRST TIME is a fast-paced, intense novel that is sure to keep you guessing and turning its pages. In 112 pages, the protagonist retells a shocking story with vivid detail and shocking honesty. The story builds slowly at first, crescendoing, coming to an abrupt halt when Larry, Haley's mom's boyfriend, enters her room, when her mom isn't at home. The plot quickly spirals, while Haley is left alone to fend for herself. She battles with the idea of tel [...]

    6. The story builds slowly at first, with a normal teenage life, coming to an abrupt halt when Larry, Haley's mom's boyfriend, enters her room, when her mom isn't at home. She tries to get him off of her but his weight was squeezing her body. After that Haley is left alone to keep the secret for herself. She battles with the idea of telling her mother the truth about Larry. She has nobody to talk to except keep the horrible secret to herself. I connect this to a book I read which was about a girl t [...]

    7. Remember Meg Tilly? Her sister has had an illustrious (read: odd) career but Meg seemed to have just dropped out of orbit. Didn't know she could write so well!!The book moves at a very fast pace and is directed at teens. Haley and her best friend Lynn are 11th graders in British Columbia, Canada. Lynn is attracted to Chad. Once Chad notices her, she has little to no time for Haley, which upsets Haley to no end. Then an incident occurs in Haley's bedroom between Haley and her mom's boyfriend Larr [...]

    8. Good, promising plot (the subject matter was why I decided to read the book in the first place) that unfortunately amounted to nothing. Why? Was it lazy writing? It sure seems like it.There were several subplots with potential to develop further into something exciting e.g. Haley's friendship with her useless and awful best friend, the best friend's dangerous and fast relationship with Chad, a new relationship with the seemingly sweet Mike and of course, the creepy Larry. Except that all of them [...]

    9. Jednou vetou: dobre napísané, ale bez pointy.Haley a Lynn sú najlepšie kamarátky, ale Lynn zrazu začne myslieť len to, ako zbaliť staršieho Chada, ako kúpiť kondómy a prísť o panenstvo, začne sa Haley cítiť trochu úplne odstrčená. V tej chvíli ju začne ešte aj sexuálne obťažovať priateľ jej matky a Haley je už úplne zúfala. A vtedy to skončí. Je to dobre napísané, to je asi najsilnejšia stránka. A autorky si nikdy nenechajú ujsť možnosť napísať trápne- [...]

    10. Better than I anticipated, given that it's written by an actress- forgive me, Ms. Tilly, for thinking of Jewel when I picked up the book.This book is clearly a one-issue book, written on spec. It is absorbing, immediate, and has the requisite amount of tension. The intentions of the evil man are telegraphed from the get-go. The ending is just unresolved enough to satisfy. But it's clunky. I think it would have been better had it been about twice as longA a star- this book has a mission (to bring [...]

    11. These short little Orca Sounding books are easy to read and have active plots. I thought Tilly did an excellent job capturing the youthful voices in this book. There were some very entertaining scenes that rang quite true, and Larry was very, very creepy. I did, however, find the ending extremely abrupt, such that I actually checked that pages hadn't been ripped out of the book. On the other hand, I could use this in a class room to promote discussion because "What happens next?" is wide open.

    12. Haley feels uneasy around her mom's new boyfriend, and that feeling intensifies when the man exposes himself to her. His attempted rape of Haley is interrupted by the sounds of Haley's mother returning home. After the man starts to strangle her, he then threatens her if she tells anyone about the incident. The ending is much too abrupt for my liking. THe sexual references make this book more appropriate for high schools than middle school, in most communities.

    13. This was a really quick read at only 112 pages. It was a simple story about two girls and their friendship during the tween years. It had a twist in the plot when Larry the mom's boy friend made a forced advance on one of the girls. Overall a good read that ended leaving the reader imagining the conversation between the mom and daughter.

    14. Early memories revisitedfull of crystal clear descriptions of that special period when sex becomes a part of growing up! written so it recalls our first exposure to opposite sex chemistry. made me remember that time I was I was in high school and was interested in exploring a physical experience!ut

    15. This book is underdeveloped, disappointing and just not worth reading. The story doesn't really go anywhere. The author tries too hard to use teenage lingo/thought processes and makes the main characters seem stupid instead of young. It's really annoying to me when books do that, confuse youth with stupidity. So, I give this book one star.

    16. Good for a short read. As is the case with stories about sexual assault, there is intensity by p. 45 that propels the text. Unfortunately, our protagonist never really takes charge of her life; she accidentally makes tough decisions leading to the ambiguous end. Anderson's "Speak" I'd richer, but this can work if that title is too long.

    17. This book had the worst ending! It ends right as it is starting to get good. I honestly thought my book was missing pages so I bought it again digitally only to find out that was the ending and that I paid twice for a terrible book.

    18. great book till the end . was very descriptive . the ending seemed cut off though. you had to imagine what happened after

    19. Pretty good, quick read, that would appeal to female reluctant readers. The title keeps you guessing as to whose "first time" it is if anyone's. Teens and up.

    20. Although this is a good book, it deals with a mom's boyfriend- he dosn't just like the mom.So if you don't like the type of almost-sexual-abuse books, I wouldn't read it.

    21. The book was very interning it also was a sad book. And I think this book is mostly for mature people. But overall it was a great book.
