Golden by Jessi Kirby

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to frief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

Parker Frost is a high school senior who may be distantly related to poet Robert Frost and each chapter of this novel begins with a few lines of a Frost poem.

Parker is a great student, but she has never taken the road less traveled. She's always played it safe. She's about to graduate having never been kissed, not acting on her major crush, and always listening to her mother. However, when it comes time to write an essay for a scholarship to college, things unravel quickly.

This novel is part romance, part mystery, and part finding out who you truly are. Girls from 8th grade through high school should really enjoy this one!
