Who are Josie, Nicolette, and Aviva? And why are they acting so stupid? This novel is a confidential look at high school life through three girl’s experiences as they cross paths with an irresistible “big jock” on campus.
Josie is a jock herself and is confident in all things until she starts her freshmen year. Doubts set in, and big jock knows just how to manipulate her. Nicolette? Well she’s the girl who knows what she wants and knows how to get it. She’ll take her pleasure where she finds it without ever looking back. Until big jock that is. And finally there’s Aviva, the least likely to be taken in by big jock. A hippie by-product of enlightened parents. Did I say the least likely to be taken in?
Just who are Josie, Nicolette, and Aviva? You’ll find out when they discover a peculiar pulpit from which to deliver their new insights on love. Insights gained from a bad boy who in the end probably did do them some good.
