For anyone who's ever survived a rite of passage or performed a mating dance at Prom . . .

The Japanese hold a Mogi ceremony for young women coming of age. Latina teenagers get quinceaneras. And Janice Wills of Melva, NC ... has to compete in the Miss Livermush pageant.

Janice loves anthropology--the study of human cultures--and her observations help her identify useful rules in the chaotic world of high school. For instance: Dancing is an effective mating ritual--but only if you're good at it; Hot Theatre Guys will never speak to Unremarkable Smart Girls like Janice and her best friend, Margo; and a Beautiful Rich Girl will always win Melva's annual Miss Livermush pageant.

But when a Hot Theatre Guy named Jimmy Denton takes an interest in Janice, all her scientific certainties explode. For the first time, she has to be part of the culture that she's always observed; and all the charts in the world can't prove how tough--and how sweet--real participation and a real romance can be.

Funny, biting, and full of wisdom, this marks the debut of a writer to watch. Download and start listening now!

    " This was a really quick read. I liked the format and the style the book is written in. It was different than I thought it would be and that was not a bad thing. The writing was just so funny in parts and i really got to like the main character who was just a sweet insecure girl. There was some teen drinking and sexual innuendos so more of a older teen read. "

    " This is perhaps not the most objective review (I know the author), but this book is a delight. Funny and smart and sappy-in-a-good-way. "
