It's never fun when a great summer comes to an end.
Particularly when one argues with one’s adorable, but grossly insensitive, boyfriend the night before school starts. It’s such a terrible fight, Jess doesn’t know—are they broken up? Should she apologize? Too bad Jess is spending all her time in detention and can’t talk to Fred to figure it out. A sadistic new English teacher has decided Jess needs an attitude adjustment, and Jess can’t seem to stop making terrible mistakes. When she ends up pantless in her own backyard, Jess is left to ask herself: Where did she go wrong? And what can be done to make it up to Fred and salvage this horrible, horrible year?
Sue Limb's writing career started in London around 1980, with various assignments for magazines and newspapers. She recently completed a prequel to Girl, 15, Charming but Insane, which Delacorte will publish in Spring 2008. She lives in England.
