Disney Book Group, Jul 13, 2010 - Juvenile Fiction - 352 pages
When best friends Dessy and Veronica arrive in Prague for a prestigious writing workshop, their priorities diverge. Dessy, fragile from a recent breakup, has come to mend her broken heart by honing her craft. Veronica has just dumped her boyfriend and plans to blow off the workshop. She 'd rather master a different craft—boys. Veronica gets right to work on her "man-wall"—one paper cutout for every hot-dude she meets—and embarks on her mission to cover a wall of their dorm by summer's end. At times, Dessy thinks her friend might be a genius. At others, Veronica seems more like an agent of chaos.
