Review quote

" What's invaluable is the sneak peek we get into how guys' self-obsessed minds work. (And thankfully-- beneath the smut-- they actually do have feelings.)" -- "Seventeen""" " The funniest young adult book I've read in a long time. Fresh, honest, and totally hilarious." -- """ "" As a card-carrying boy, I appreciate the male P.O.V. of this novel, so kudos to Burgess for exploring a sensitive subject in an honest way." -- "Elle Girl "
