Today’s Friday Fiction is a cautionary tale about getting married too young. Lori, a child of divorce, is planning to get married after high school graduation and really start being an adult. Lucky for her, the Econ class she has is going to do a simulated marriage so the teens can see what is really involved. Then reality hits. Decisions! Life goals! Priorities! Lori finds out that perfect boy Garrick isn’t as great as she thought. By the end of the book, Lori has figured out quite a bit about her future and decides not to get married (for real) to poor Garrick.
The book wasn’t bad, and I am sure I would have read it in heartbeat when I was in high school. But hey, these kids are almost my contemporaries!
