really liked it
bookshelves: funny, real, teen
Recommended for: 7th grade and up

One of those books that might be overlooked as just being a silly Angus-Thongs-wannabe, but actually has a very good and too rarely addressed issue: a cute girl wants guys to like her so she flirts, dresses sexily, etc., and then is surprised when a guy thinks she wants him to do more than like her. She is saved at the last minute, but you get a clear sense of what might have happened. She's not a "bad" girl and it's not "bad" that she wants guys to think she's cute--but there can be bad consequences.
