[In It's OK If You Don't Love Me] 17-year-old Jody enjoys sex and takes informed precautions to avoid pregnancy…. Jody spends a lot of time analyzing her actions in an annoyingly flip way, a trait she comes by naturally since her twice-divorced mother discusses having her tubes tied as if she were deciding to have her shoes shined. Conversations between characters are very frank, often including a smattering of four-letter words, but Klein is disappointingly blasé in dealing with the real decisions young high school age women must make about the opposite sex.
Carol Schene, in a review of "It's OK If You Don't Love Me," in School Library Journal, Vol. 23, No. 9, May, 1977, p. 83.
