Boys, boys, boys! This book is telling many stories about girls, and a few boys, on how the love game is. Some of the stories involve girls having crushes on a certain boy or even their own friend, unattractive girls who get teased, girls who like someone of a different culture. Also, there is a certain story about a young girl who is mixed, becomes pregnant, and wants to give her child up for adoption. Her boyfriend is in jail. While this is happening, her father kicks her out and she must live in a shelter for girls who are like her. She meets a boy who is speacial ed. And she begins to use him. This situation does not end well. This book is geared towards teenagers. You will enjoy this book!

I loved this book. The author for me was right on point about all these problems. I can relate to alot of them. Also even if u havent come across a heart ache you will and you should read this book to help you realize the error of your ways. This book taught me that to not let a guy treat me like dirt. I reccommend this book to anybody that has problems in there relationship and needs something to help u realize what to do. I doubt you will be dispointed.

My opinion about Sharon G. Flake is that she is a good writer. I say this because these 10 short stories are like real situations. Some may be sad, or funny.But the way you gotta look at it is that some teenage girl wants the cute popular boy, and when most girls want a boy bad they do anything to get them. I know girls who will disrespect themselves to get a boy.Most of the times the stories take place at school.Then you girls wanting the bad boy but at the end of trying to get him he dont want that girl.This story will teach ayoung lady a lesson especially if your a girl like one of these girls.I also think most teens will like this book because you can realate it to real life.

It loved the book. every single story. i just really touched me to see these kids relationships and to hear all the stories its like realting to my life. i was touched by every story espically 'Girl Didn't I say I dont Write letters' i just was beautiful because they found that they were each other true love and they never would realized it without the letters. and i also loved ' Jacobs Rules' It showed how in a reationship how they treat each other and how they choose who they're going to date and why.
