Luscious Love

From the Series Lorimer Real Love

  • Interest Level: Grade 8 - Grade 12
  • Reading Level: Grade 5

Mina’s summer is shaping up well: she’s got her dream job and, with the way her new coworker is flirting, maybe a new girlfriend as well. The lingerie store where they both work might threaten to ruin it all though.

Centering around first love, cultural expectations, and class, Luscious Love is the story of a girl who must allow herself to be loved, learn to love herself, and stand up against a boss that’s all too willing to take advantage of her low self-esteem.

Committed to amplifying female voices, author Katerina Bakolias highlights the traps we fall into when we have low self-worth.
