This is the continuation of the story told in _AWLL 1_ and _AWLL 2, Books 1-8_. If you haven’t read those, you’ll have serious difficulty following the story. I strongly encourage you to read all that has come before this book!
This series now has a companion series, _Good Medicine_, and there are several ‘crossover’ characters in Book 9. Generally speaking, you’ll get more out of Book 9 if you read through _Good Medicine - Freshman Year_ before you read Book 9, but it is not mandatory.
As with the earlier books, there is a lot of dialogue and introspection. There is also a decent amount of sex, some of it explicit and juicy, and some of it agonizingly erotic in its simplicity.
*Please note that this book will skip time. Watch the section headers and dates!*
A special thanks to Steve Smith, my editor, who has done an incredibly fantastic job helping me bring these characters to life. Also, to my proofreaders and the members of the AWLL email group and Discord server who get to read the pre-release chapters and point out the remaining typos and misses.
