Best friends make the worst romance. Chris (a girl) and Jack (a boy) have been best friends for years, since first grade. Then puberty rears its ugly head. On the court and on the playing field, Jack has always had to accept that Chris is a better athlete. Now it seems she is gaining the advantage when it comes to looks and popularity, too, and Jack can't accept that. After all, who is a member of Eastport's premier social establishment -- the Eastport Country Club -- and who isn't? Worrying that he is falling behind his friend, Jack panics, acts out, and generally muddles things up. To make matters worse, he also finds himself starting to wonder if he is falling in love with her at the same time. With her third novel, Mame Farrell further establishes her reputation for convincing and funny contemporary fiction.
