Rhiannon, Nicole, and James wrestle with heartbreak, revenge, and manifold secrets in this multivoice exploration of high school life. Colasanti successfully weaves three perspectives into a complex but easily navigated story. The teen slang is forced ("I picked the MoMA because modern art rocks"), but the honesty and vulnerability of the protagonists is compelling. Copyright 2008 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

Gr 8 Up— This tale has likable and realistic teen characters. It takes place over an event-filled week, with Rhiannon, Nicole, and James telling the same story from their individual perspectives. Rhiannon is devastated by her recent breakup with Steve. Nicole has broken up with Danny for no apparent reason, and he is determined to win her back. James, who has always been Rhiannon's best friend, is finding his feelings for her undergoing a dramatic change. Many humorous events occur, including Rhiannon's surefire plan to get Steve back that backfires. Readers will be intrigued by how the same incidents can be seen in so many different lights. They may also gain perspective on how one action can have very different consequences for people. The story also addresses several difficult and all-too-common problems that many teens face. Nicole realizes that Sheila is being physically abused by her boyfriend and is able to get her some professional help. Nicole has her own dark secret—her father is sexually abusing her. It's through her interactions with her friends that she is finally able to acknowledge the abuse and start to get on with her life. Teens who are dealing with their own problems will benefit from the hopeful resolution of this story. While this book's main appeal will be with girls, guys will enjoy hearing the male perspective.—Sheilah Kosco, Bastrop Public Library, TX
