Read from February 14 to April 27, 2011

Doing it is about a boy, Dino, and a girl, Jackie. Dino desperately wants to lose his viginity to Jackie, but she doesn't want to sleep with Dino. Jackie had been dating this guy that is 8 years older than her and lives in his own house and thought Dino was just stupid and weird. But after awhile she becomes sexually attracted to Dino. I really like this book because it gives me a good laugh because Dino just gets really upset that Jackie leads him on. I mean, Jackie really wants to do it with him, but something just holds herself back which is what I don't quite get really why. Dino has a party and Jackie tells him that she will sleep with him that night, but she ends up leaving because she doesn't know why. Yeah, I don't get it either. And Dino ends up sleeping with this girl who needs a place to stay fro the night and she tells him all of these lies. The girls real name is Zoe but she says it is Siobhan. She's really 14 when she tells Dino she is 17. Dino just finds her quite attractive and wants to not have a relationship with her, but just sex. He thinks that while being with Jackie he could do it with "Siobhan". Because Jackie won't want to have sex, so Dino could just get it elsewhere without having to nag Jackie! The book is good so far, i have to finish it yet!
