Well, if you've visited Donuts and Desires much over the past month, you're probably aware that today's new release, LIKE IT’S 1999: Diary of a Teenager in Love with a Teacher is just that: my actual diary from when I was 18 years old and, as the title suggests, in love with a teacher.
Many of you have told me how excited you are to read my journal, because you're all a bunch of emotional voyeurs, but, hey, have at it! That's what it's there for. Be warned, though, if you're a fan of my erotic fiction: this is NOT that. It's not a sex diary. In fact, there is no explicit content... certainly not in an "erotica" sense.
Okay, enough talk, Giselle. Get to the good stuff.
Here's the book description:
True confessions of a real-life high school student on the cusp of a new millennium.
On the eve of the year 2000, high school student Giselle struggles with spirituality, ambiguous friendships, a family dealing with the aftermath of substance abuse, and deepening feelings of attraction toward her English teacher, a married man more than twice her age. Over the course of one school year, she shifts from seeing Lawrence as a father figure to falling obsessively in love. Is Giselle making a total fool of herself, or will her teacher return her affection? Having an affair with a student would easily cost Lawrence his career, his wife, and his kids, not to mention his sanity. Will a by-the-books teacher sacrifice everything to indulge Giselle’s teenage crush?
LIKE IT’S 1999 is the actual, unabridged, honest-to-god diary of a teenager in love with her teacher.
I may be a little biased, but I really think you should buy a copy. I recommend the paperback, but the e-book is a really reasonable price, so the choice is yours. Plenty of places to find both:
