the story may be from 1999, but i just read it yesterday. tc boyle's the love of my life.
love went on a path i should have seen coming. actually, i think i did, but was in denial--until it hit me over the head! it really knocked my socks off. it was a very emotionally arresting piece filled with happiness, joy, bliss(the ignorant kind), and then it swoops in for the kill--your heart, its victim.
this is a must read for teenagers who think fooling around is just fun and games. there are real consequences, and for some, very life changing and terrifying consequences to their actions.
