For twelve years, Joylin Johnson's life has been just fine, thank you very much. A game of basketball with the boys-especially her friend Jake-was all it took to put a smile on her face. Baggy jeans, T-shirt, and hair in a ponytail were easy choices. Then suddenly the world seemed to turn upside down, and everything changed at once. Her best girl friend is now flirting with her best guy friend. Her clothes seem all wrong. Jake is acting weird, and basketball isn't the same. And worst of all, there is this guy, Santiago, who appears from . . . where? What lengths will Joy go to-and whom will she become-to attract his attention?

In short poems that perfectly capture the crazy feelings of adolescence and first crushes, award-winning author Nikki Grimes has crafted a delightful, often hilarious, hearttugging story.

This is a good,funny book...but may not be what you would expect.

This book was really good for me because i am in middle school and it was really useful. I think it will be really useful for all of you guys as well.

This was a good book. Not the best, though. It was okay. It didn't have much going on except a girl who plays basketball liking a boy who she fails to get and then she's not obsessing about boys anymore.
