From heart breaks to school tests, the book “Lust” is an interesting fiction book to read. The book is written by Robin Wasserman. It will always leave you wanting more! Here the ‘queen bee’ Miss Harper Grace is all about her popularity and fan club, but yet she seems to not be happy, because what she really wants is taken. Even though this book is fiction, it seems so realistic, because everyone wants what they can’t have. No one is pleased with what they already have. There are six main characters. The book switches from each of the characters throughout every chapter. Harper is the main character. She is the most popular girl in school, and her best friend, Miranda, isn’t that popular, but Harper helps her with that. Harper is in love with her childhood neighbor, Adam. Adam is dating Beth. Adam’s best friend, Kane, wants Beth for himself, while Miranda wants Kane. Kaia comes to their small town from a big city, and she is almost more popular than Harper when she comes. She is willing to hurt anyone it takes to get to Adam and the new French teacher, Mr. Powell! The book takes place in present day. It is in a small town called Grace. The story takes us to many places in their town. Usually the characters are in school, but after school they typically have practices or go shopping. They spend a lot of time at the Nineteen Fifties Diner, too. In the book “Lust” the place that the most events occur would have to be the Abandon Motel. The students throw their after formal party there.The author’s reason for writing this book is to entertain her audience. She knows that people find drama in other people’s lives more interesting than their own, so she made it into a book to be read by all. She also felt a connection as she wrote the book, because she went through all the drama and high school events in the book.Personally, I was in love with this book and I enjoyed every second I spent reading it. I felt a connection to the book and to the author. Everything that takes place in this book is all everyday teenage events. The theme in this book is selfish desire. Everyone wants things for themselves, nobody checks others feelings first. The characters don't care who they hurt in the process of getting it either. I would recommend this book for older kids; girls in particular, because boys may not find this book as interesting. This is definitely not a book for younger kids. I suggest it to teens or older. I also can not wait to start reading the second book in the series. It left me at a little cliffhanger at the end of the first book!
