Before this all happened, the closest I’d ever come to getting physical with a guy was playing the board game Operation. Then I met Wes, a track star senior from across town. Maybe it was his soulful blue eyes, or maybe my hormones just started raging. Either way, I was hooked. And after a while, he was too. I couldn’t believe how intense my feelings became, or the fact that I was seeing—and touching—parts of the body I’d only read about in my Gray’s Anatomy textbook. You could say Wes and I experienced a lot of firsts together that spring. It was scary. It was fun. It was love.
And then came the fall.

Okay, so here’s the 411 on this book.. But first off, a warning is given to all that this is a graphic novel. So don’t complain about it being too graphic. Curious teens may pick this up for that sole reason or discovering about first love.

Back to the book, the story line/plot is pretty simple–the encounters between two people’s first relationship while soon both of them leaving for colleges. Anatomy of A Boyfriend doesn’t shy away from the fact that things most of the time [those kind of relationships] end up changing over time with or without your consent.

While at Amy’s, her best friend, track meet, Dom is helped by a mysterious guy when encountered with a slip in the grass. Amy helps find out whom he is ending up to be a track star hottie named Wes. A bond between those two forms when Dom gathers the courage to email him. They first start hanging out with groups, but then alone. The couple, Wes and Dom, go slow and steady for awhile, but then their strong feelings change that. While college soon finally comes, Dom and Wes must test their relationship strength to see if it can handle long-distance.
