When David tells Mitchell he's gay, Mitchell's okay with it but it still seems to change things. Since David's not out to anyone else, the guys agree to be set up with prom dates. "Then," one of the most popular girls in school decides she "must" date Mitchell, and he's gone from zero to two girlfriends in sixty seconds.
From his pending English grade, to his floundering friendship, to his love life the one thing that's taken a bizarre turn for the better Mitchell is so confused, he'll be lucky if he lasts another week in high school And then there's the prom . . .
With a wickedly funny voice and a colorful cast of characters, Steven Goldman has written a novel for every reader even those who "like" high school
