Wilder award-winning author Nikki Grimes's fresh novel in verse story of heartbreak and hope—with a brand-new look for paperback.


For twelve years, Joylin Johnson's life has been just fine. A game of basketball with the boys, especially her friend Jake, was all it took to put a smile on her face. Baggy jeans, T-shirt, and hair in a ponytail were easy choices.


Then, everything suddenly seemed to change all at once. Her best girl friend is now flirting with her best guy friend. Her clothes seem all wrong. Jake is acting weird, and basketball isn't the same. And worst of all, there’s this guy, Santiago, who appears from out of nowhere.


What lengths will Joy go to—and who will she become—to attract his attention?


In short poems that perfectly capture the crazy feelings of adolescence and first crushes, award-winning author Nikki Grimes has crafted a delightful, often hilarious, heart-tugging story.
