Publisher Description

The girls of Devonairre Street have always been told they’re cursed. Any boy they love is certain to die too soon. But this is Brooklyn in 2008, and the curse is less a terror and more a lifestyle accessory—something funky and quaint that makes the girls from the shortest street in Brooklyn special. They wear their hair long and keys around their necks. People give them a second look and whisper “Devonairre” to their friends. But it’s not real. It won’t affect their futures.
 
Then Jack—their Jack, the one boy everyone loved—dies suddenly and violently. And now the curse seems not only real, but like the only thing that matters. All their bright futures have suddenly gone dark.
 
The Careful Undressing of Love is a disturbing and sensual story of the power of youth and the boundless mysteries of love set against the backdrop of Haydu’s brilliantly reimagined New York City.

Loved it... but

I have to say, I could not put my phone down while reading this. This book was fantastic! It had great plot, great characters, and just... everything. But towards the end I feel like it was missing things. I wanted to know more, but- of course- I guess that is what the author intended. I felt like I skipped over parts of the story even though I hadn't. It really felt like something was missing. Overall, I enjoyed this book. I would recommend it to anyone!
