Josie, Nicolette, and Aviva all get mixed up with a senior boy-a cool, slick, sexy boy who can talk them into doing almost anything he wants. In a blur of high school hormones and personal doubt, each girl struggles with how much to give up and what ultimately to keep for herself. How do girls handle themselves? How much can a boy get away with? And in the end, who comes out
on top? A bad boy may always be a bad boy. But this bad boy is about to meet three girls who won't back down.

Review:

" Three girls succumb to the charms of one sexy high school senior and emerge wiser for the experience in this energetic novel in verse. . . The free verse gives the stories a breathless, natural flow and changes tone with each narrator. The language is realistic and frank, and, while not graphic, it is filled with descriptions of the teens and their sexuality. This is not a book that will sit quietly on any shelf; it will be passed from girl to girl to girl." - "School Library Journal," Starred Review
" This amazing first novel is one of the most honest treatments of teenage sexuality to be found in YA fiction. . . . This will be much talked about, and every reader who has been swept away in a love affair will recognize its truth." - "Kliatt"
" The kind of tell-it-like-it-is wisdom that comes from your best girlfriends. It's irresistible." - Libba Bray, "New York Times" bestselling author of "A Great and Terrible Beauty" and "Rebel Angels""
"" Candid free-verse novel . . . electrically charged." - "The"" Horn Book Magazine"
" Stone's novel in verse, more poetic prose than poetry, packs a steamy, emotional wallop. . . . The lessons learned here, however, are important." - "Booklist"
" It's fantastic- hip, edgy, and addicting. Sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking, always real. Sure to be the new "Forever,"" - Cynthia Leitich Smith, award-winning author
" Every high-school age girl in the world needs to read this book, before they meet the proverbial bad boy." - Teens Read Too!
" 3 smart girls + 1 slick seniorboy = 1 sharply observed novel about sex, sisterhood, and self-respect." - Reading Rants!
A Bill's Best Book chosen by ALAN- the Assembly on Literature for Adolescents of the National Council of Teachers of English

" The next "Vagina Monologues," . . . for the teen crowd." - Donna Freitas, Belief.net columnist and author of "Becoming a Goddess of Inner Poise"
" Stone's intimate and honest work accurately depicts both the agony and ecstasy of teenage relationships from the inside out." - "VOYA," 4Q, 4P
