This is a very quick read--a novel in verse about 3 girls who all encounter the same "bad boy". One of the girls decides to warn everyone else by using the library book Forever by Judy Blume, since every teenage girl will read it at some point. She uses the last few blank pages to add her warning. Other girls who have also experienced the heartache associated with this player add their own opinions and comments. Anyone who has had her heart broken by a bad boy and has lived to tell the tale will be drawn to this book. Boys who want to know how NOT to act with girls would also benefit from reading it.
