Hot by Laura L. Smith

Hot is the story of Lindsey Kraus, a high school sophomore who struggles like so many other girls her age, with self-esteem issues.  Insecure about everything from her home life to her physical appearance, Lindsey faces the temptation of going too far when she falls in love for the very first time.   

Although Lindsey has a good heart and loves God, she also loves Noah and finds herself on the fence about her convictions and personal beliefs.  Planning to wait until she’s married to have sex may prove to be too lofty of a goal, as Lindsey and Noah grow more attracted to each other.   

Overall, Hot shares an important message and I think that this book could be a good tool for parents to use as a means of opening up dialogue with their teens about this sensitive topic - however parental discretion should be used first. 

I would suggest that any parent who is thinking of having their teen read this, read it first themselves to make sure the content is appropriate for their own personal tastes.
