"Jeremiah Reskin has big plans for tenth grade - he wants to make some friends and he wants to take a girl's shirt off. It's not going too well at first, but when he meets a group of semibohemian outcasts, things start to change. Soon he's negotiating his way through group back rubs and trying to find the courage to make a move on Renee Shopmaker, the hottest girl in school. At the behest of his composition teacher, Jeremy's also chronicling everything in his own novel - a disastrously ungrammatical but unflinching look at sophomore year."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
