What's a girl like Cindy to do when her boyfriend breaks up with her for Marcy, a mean-spirited cheerleader? The obvious solution is to fall for the new boy in school. Tim is gorgeous, funny, friendly and her next-door neighbor. But Tim thinks of Cindy as a buddy instead of a beauty. Should Cindy tell Tim how she really feels and risk their friendship? Should she try to get Chip back from Marcy? Or should she forget them both and join a convent? With help from her friends and family, she makes it through the most exasperating year of her high school life.
