|Plot Summary of The Wind Blows Backward|
|"This is the story of a girl growing up poor in a rich neighborhood, and finding herself falling in love with a boy she's known for years, who is completely out of her reach. While she grows closer to the man she's known for so long, she discovers exactly how deep their animosity runs, and how far they'll go to keep their secrets hidden. This books deals with a lot of growing up themes: first love, sex, and hormones. It's a wonderful "girl" book, and will become an all time favorite. "
