'Talley's newest is sure to satisfy.' - Kirkus Reviews

Fifteen-year-old Aki Simon has a theory.
And it's mostly about sex.

So when Aki and her friend Lori set off on a trip to a small Mexican town for the summer, and Aki meets Christa--slightly-older, far-more-experienced--it seems her theory is prime for the testing.

But something tells her its not going to be that easy...
