HOW TO TAKE THE EX OUT OF EX-BOYFRIEND

Age Range: 12 - 14

KIRKUS REVIEW

Caught between her popular boyfriend, Jesse, and her headstrong twin, Dante, Giovanna (16) is forced to take sides in the upcoming student-council election. Her loyalty to her twin wins out. As if that’s not enough to make her life difficult, Giovanna is still doing community service for a crime involving frogs and her stepmother’s briefcase. She is equally frustrated at home as she tries to figure out why her stepmother makes her life so difficult and yet seems to dote on Dante. Giovanna agrees to go on a string of blind dates in an attempt to get Jesse back, but they culminate in one horrible evening in which Giovanna has to rely on Jesse to rescue her. This somewhat familiar story is given a fresh twist with likable and real characters. Fast-paced and funny, Rallison’s latest will satisfy faithful fans and will encourage new ones to join the fun. (Fiction. 12-14)
