A modern day Pygmalion with a twist. Best friends Tracie and Jonny have been meeting for coffee every Sunday for the past six years, trading stories of failed romance. Tracie has been involved with one bad boy after another -- men with a fondness for black leather and motorcycles and a distate for commitment. Jonny, on the other hand, is a nice guy and he always hears that women like him as a friend, but never "in that way". Now the tables are turned when Jonny convinces Tracie to teach him how to be a bad boy and, after his successful transformation, she falls in love with her best friend. Olivia Goldsmith, author of The First Wives Club, turns her sharp wit to the foibles of modern dating in this comic and poignant "young" novel.
