    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."--"Alloy.com"" ""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 ""Fun, peppy and unusually frank . . . Readers of both sexes whose hormones have just begun to simmer will welcome a book that so accurately mirrors their new worldview."--"Publishers Weekly", Starred Review
