Other Words for Love ARC by Lorraine Zago Rosenthal

Release: January 11, 2011
Publisher:  Random House Children's Books
Rated: YA

When an unexpected inheritance enables Ari to transfer to an elite Manhattan prep school, she makes a wealthy new friend, Leigh. Leigh introduces Ari to the glamorous side of New York—and to her gorgeous cousin, Blake. Ari doesn't think she stands a chance, but amazingly, Blake asks her out. As their romance heats up, they find themselves involved in an intense, consuming relationship. Ari's family worries that she is losing touch with the important things in life, like family, hard work, and planning for the future.  

When misfortune befalls Blake's family, he pulls away, and Ari's world drains of color. As she struggles to get over the breakup, Ari must finally ask herself: were their feelings true love . . . or something else?

What I thought:

What an amazing story! The book description doesn't do it justice. This is more than a romance, more than a coming of age story, this is a well defined life of a teen in the 80's. The hardships, struggles, drama, victories, lessons and betrayals that Ari experiences were heartfelt. Ari is an amazing character and one cannot help but relate to her experiences. One of the strongest characters I have read in a long time. Strength isn't refusing to cry after bad things happen, but the actions that are taken after that truly define us.

This is the debut of Rosenthal and I will be keeping an eye out for her later. She has a gift with words and weaving them together to create such a wonderful story.  I highly recommend this novel.
