Bad Boys Stink
A Bad Boy Can Be Good for a Girl by Tanya Lee Stone
Ever had your heart broken? Josie’s smart and pretty, but just a freshman, or freshmeat as the jock pals of her new senior boyfriend like to say. When she stops short of doing the deed, she finds herself dumped and despondent. The worst part is she knew all along that this wasn't going to end happily and yet she let herself believe. She gets her self-esteem back when she decides to spread the word about T.L. (aka Total Loser) and his callow behavior in the back of the library’s copy of Forever. Nicolette, who always thought she was tough, is the next to fall victim to T.L.’s considerable charms. And then there is Aviva. And a quick perusal of that copy of Forever shows that they aren’t the only ones . . .
This should be on every girl’s ninth grade reading list for life. “Forewarned is forearmed. Forever.”!!!!!!!
