Overview

Joanie's got all of the problems of an almost seventeen year old girl. She's trying to get her driver's license, her mom and dad are pressuring her about going to prom, and she never can seem to make it to the bus on time. Even worse, Joanie likes girls, not boys, and all of the girls in her hometown are pretty darned straight. Her best friend, Zane, can attest to that, considering that he never has trouble getting a girl, even if he's not interested in the freshmen who swarm around him. When new girl Kate shows up, needing tutoring in math and chemistry, Joanie figures Zane will get the date, like he always does, and that makes life even more difficult. Joanie's in for a surprise, though, because Kate doesn't fall for her good-looking best friend. In fact, Kate seems to like girls, too, and things get a little scary when Kate asks Joanie out on a date. Somehow Joanie knows if she says yes to Kate, things will change forever. Can she manage to pass her driving test, get to prom, and come out to her parents the way Kate wants her to? Or will Joanie's seventeenth birthday be the worst day in history?

Read an Excerpt

"Joanie, honey! Hurry! The bus--"

"Got it!" Joanie leaped the last two steps and hit the kitchen floor running. "I'm outta here." She grabbed a banana and a slice of toast off the table as she hurried by it, stopping to kiss her mom on the cheek.

"You're late again, stupid," Liz told her.

"Shut up, weenie." Joanie stuck her tongue out at her little sister and headed for the front door at a jog.

"Coat!"

"On it, Mom!" She hefted her bag higher on her shoulder, stuffed her jacket under her arm and sprinted the half a block to the bus stop where Zane, trusty Zane, was holding up the bus for her. He'd stopped just before getting on board, taking his time while pretending to tie his shoe.

Joanie skidded around him and caught the door in one hand. "Good morning!"

"It is now!"

She got on the bus and tossed her bag into a seat. "You rock, Zane."

Zane fell into the seat across the aisle from Joanie and gave her that cute lopsided grin, the same one that made all the freshman girls sigh over him and draw stupid little hearts around his name in their notebooks. "I try."

There were no hearts around Zane's name in any of Joanie's notebooks.

"I thought I was gonna miss it today for sure."

"No way." Zane shook his head. "I wasn't about to let you miss math today."

Joanie rolled her eyes. "I got, like, maybe five hours of sleep. Watch me fail the test."

"Shut up," Zane complained, crossing his arms over his chest. "What's failing for you, Jo, a B?"

"You shut up. I get Bs sometimes."

"But not in math."

"Okay, no. Not in math." Never in math. Sometimes in English or history, but she really liked math. She wasjust good at it, even she wasn't sure why. "You know if I get a B on a math test my dad will seriously ground me."

"Damn." Zane shook his head. "But still. That's pretty harsh."

"Yeah, well. I studied my butt off last night."

"And that's why you were late?"

"I overslept." Her answer was deliberately vague. Well, that part was true, she had stayed up too late and overslept, but she wasn't losing sleep over the math test; she'd stayed up late drawing again. Joanie stuffed the rest of her toast in her mouth so she couldn't say anything more. The drawing thing wasn't the issue; he knew she drew comics in her journal, but she didn't dare tell Zane that she'd ended up drawing pictures of his ex-girlfriend, Samantha. She was so cute. And so nice.

And so totally straight.
