Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Robins neighbor Frankie is like walking sex. Hes 23, hot, charming, and used to getting what he wants. When Janice, Robins stepmom, first meets Frankie, they lock eyes with an almost audible sizzle. Not long after, Robin discovers theyre having an affair. She is shocked, angry, curious, even jealousbut not really surprised. Its just one more hurtful secret to be kept in this parallel universe of liars.

Surrounded by superficiality, infidelity, and lies, Robin, 15 and a self-described “chunk,” has a secret of her ownshe cant stay away from Frankie, either. But when a new guy ambles into her life, Robin must find a way to escape her own tangle of deception to capture something real.

Review:

"One summer, a 15-year catches her 'hot' older neighbor having sex with her stepmother and is confronted with a 'parallel universe of liars.' In a starred review, PW said that the 'refreshingly ordinary narrator frankly and even humorously deals with the sensitive topics of sex and race.' Ages 12-up. (Mar.)"
