Simon is the coolest teacher anywhere. Forest Alternative is lucky to have him. When Stacy, a new kid with secrets, gleaming hair and a tongue ring, arrives she sizes up Simon and agrees, adding: “He is a total babe.”


What Stacy says later about Alex and Simon after the class overnight camp out is not true, but looks as if it could be. Alex herself begins to wonder what’s real, what’s not. But she can’t confide in her parents. They’d freak. And, after all, she does love Simon.

Listening to Stacy though, everyone else is totally suckered, most painfully Alex’s best buddy and sort-of boyfriend, Tim. “Why were you hugging him?” Tim wants to know, and it’s hard to explain. Simon did not do what Stacy claims!

Did he? Could he?

At age twelve the truth seems hopelessly complicated. And it gets even more so after Alex makes a surprise visit to Stacy’s house. There, she finds out the answer to one terrible question, only to discover another, far worse.

    " I thought this book was very interesting. I thought this because it was intense and sometimes just odd.... Well to me at least. If you read this book you might understand my review. I am highly recommending this book to everyone out there who is 11 and older. For ones who are younger might not understand the lesson to this story. I loved this book.... "

    " Frank does an excellent job of addressing the danger in gossip and the confusion it can cause in young adults. At the same time, it shows a great deal of pain of Stacy and some of the trauma she has endured. Overall, the book asks great questions for teens to consider in this all too common situation. "
