Summary on Goodreads.

Should sex between two consenting people be free from governmental interference... even if one of them is a teenager?

In The whole golden world Riggle explores the classic topic of a romantic relationship between a teenager and an adult.

If you love family drama and the ups and downs of a perfect mother concerned with what she did wrong, this book is for you.

The opening of the book is down right powerful. It starts with the description of the summary: Morgan going to seat by her
"molester" to show her support. I love court drama and this one just gave me a little tiny bit of it, so obviously I wanted more.

The book focuses more in the family aspect of the story rather than the trial (which is what I was rooting for). I am not a fan of family drama, but sometimes family background is necessary to explain some actions; especially if the book is based on a real life story.

I am sure that we have all heard a lot of stories like this. And I say "heard" because we don't know what really went down. In The Whole Golden World we have a glimpse at the circumstances that could lead a teenager to fall in love with an older man... and a much more adult to get involved with a teenager.

I totally got Morgan's side, but TJ?

Lastly, Riggle has a wonderful writing style!
