Sixteen-year-old Mason Rice is having the night of his life. He's just delivered an incredible performance in the school play, basked in celebratory afterglow vibes at the party of the year, and lost his virginity to one of his best friends--the gorgeous but previously unobtainable Kat Medina. His dreams are coming true and the future looks golden. Unfortunately, Kat sees things very differently. Crossing the friendship line was a big mistake and all she wants is to forget it and move on, even if means forgetting Mason altogether. What's a guy to do? Well, if you're Mason, you hang your hopes on the first attractive 23-year-old you cross paths with. At first Mason wonders if he's imagining the chemistry . . . until Colette invites him over to her apartment. Suddenly Mason's living in a whole new world. Fans of John Green and Sarah Dessen will savor C. K. Kelly Martin's sexy, smart, soulful story of one confused boy, two girls, and all the complications that ensue in this feel good celebration of friendship, first love, first lust, and second chances.

Not bad. I guess it's pretty good but it got kind of boring halfway through it. I'm just saying there are better books then this.

"I wish we brought some pizza with us," Kat mumbles near my ear.
"You don't need to be any heavier," I say irritably. Generally, this isn't a good thing to say to anyone. If I'm lucky she won't remeber.
"I'm not that heavy," she protests, releasing her grip on me and jumping down. "Your muscles are underdeveloped." She starts shuffling along next to me and we manage to make it all the way to my house in twice the amount of time it would normally take.
