"A startlingly authentic picture of a girl in transition on multiple levels...teens will appreciate this thoughtful look at the implications -- or lack thereof -- of doing the deed."―The Bulletin

"Smart and thought provoking."―Booklist

"A hilarious and heartfelt story about what happens when a teenage girl actually tries to honor all the promises that adults demand from her while staying true to herself. I loved this book."―Jennifer Echols, award-winning author of Endless Summer and Love Story
