About this item

For twelve years, Joylin Johnson’s life has been just fine, thank you very much. A game of basketball with the boys—especially her friend Jake—was all it took to put a smile on her face. Baggy jeans, tee shirt, and hair in a ponytail were easy choices. Then suddenly the world seems to turn upside down, and everything changes at once. Her best girl friend is flirting with her best guy friend. Her clothes seem all wrong. Jake is acting weird and basketball isn’t the same. And worst of all there is this one guy, Santiago, who appears from . . . where? What lengths will Joy go to—and who will she become—to attract his attention?
In short poems that perfectly capture the crazy feelings of adolescence and first crushes, award-winning author Nikki Grimes has crafted a delightful, often hilarious, and heart-tugging story.
