Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

High school is never easy... and when you are suffering from a hubris complex and are convinced that the gods on Olympus have focused their attention on you, things are sure to get even harder. In this smart and sassy debut novel, the spotlight is on Jan Miller-a self-labeled "Not It" girl struggling to find out what and who she wants. From her best friend, who is an It girl, to her parents, who are way too embarrassing to her crushes (who always seem to be in the right place at the wrong time), there is never a dull moment for Jan. With college application deadlines looming and a group of seemingly vindictive gods ready to sabotage her every move, Jan is about to set off on a memorable trip through senior year and prove that being a "Not It" girl has some major rewards. From first-time author Melissa Kantor comes a fresh and witty look at senior year from the perspective of one girl convinced she is everything but "It."

Review:

"Clumsy and self-deprecating, witty and smart, Jan struggles with her feelings and her nerves, and comes through a winner on the very last page. Lots of fun, lots of truth, very satisfying." Susan Oliver, School Library Journal

Review:

"Kantor's debut novel is so true to life it reads like overheard conversations.... Jan seems as real as the girl next door." USA Today

Review:

"[F]un....Jan's sense of humor, and her rapport with both Josh and Rebecca...will keep the pages turning. Plus, the novel offers a motivating message to girls about feeling free to make the first move." Publishers Weekly
