"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green

         "One," I say.  This is it, Mom.  This is for you.
          Promise Three.
          I'm not sure who jumps first, but the next thing I know, the three of us sail through the air, blue sky sliding into green tress toward the lake.  This is life without restraint; this is what Mom wanted for me.  We release our hands.  I'm scared for an instant, then somehow free.
(No page number)

I was so lucky to get an ARC of this amazing book!  It's such a departure from the other books of Jackson's: Sweetly, Sisters Red, and As You Wish.  Purity is a great contemporary and is, "A novel about love, loss, and sex–but not necessarily in that order."  This is the best mix of heartbreak and humor.  You definitely don't want to miss this one, when it comes out on the 24th!!!


  1. This does sound like a cute book! Glad she is living free for her mom!
