Sex, Drama, and The Art of Boyfriending
Teen & Young Adult, Contemporary Romance
What do you do if you’re a fifteen-year-old girl whose much older (eighteen) boyfriend breaks up with her because you won’t “go all the way?”
What do you do if you live in the smallest town in the world, where everyone knows your business before you do, and it’s the first day of school, and you just want to hide under the covers and pretend you’re dead?
What do you do if you love theatre more than anything, and you want to go to New York to study and be on Broadway, but your dads named you after Ruth Bader Ginsberg and want you to go to law school and change the world?
If you’re Ruthie Barakat-Grimaldi, the youngest senior at Warren High School, who lives in the tiny town of Warren, in Central California, you suck it up, get out of bed, continue to lie to everyone you know, and get on with it.
