Synopsis

What Boys Really Want by Pete Hautman

Lita is the writer. Adam is the entrepreneur. They are JUST FRIENDS. So Adam would never sell copies of a self-help book before he'd even written it. And Lita would never try to break up Adam's relationship with Blair, the skankiest girl at school. They'd never sabotage their friends Emily and Dennis. Lita would never date a guy related to a girl she can't stand. They'd never steal each other's blog posts. And Adam would never end up in a fist fight with Lita's boyfriend. Nope, never. Adam and Lita might never agree on what happened, but in this hilarious story from Pete Hautman, they manage to give the world a little more insight into what boys and girls are really looking for.

Reviews

Praise for The Big Crunch: * Hautman skillfully subverts cliches in this subtle, authentic, hearttuggingexploration of first love, but his sharp-eyed view of high-school social dynamics and the lovingfriction between parents and teens on the edge of independence is just as memorable. - Booklist, starred review With not a bell or whistle in sight, Hautman manages to write the YA love story of all time: simple, poignant, and very, very real. - VOYA A humorous and bittersweet tale of romance and the convoluted, uncertain paths that bring two people together. - Kirkus ReviewsPraise for How to Steal a Car: * A sporty, stylish model with peppy acceleration and surprising traction, this will be a sweet ride for readers - BCCB, starred review A sharply observed, subversive coming-of-age tale. - Kirkus Reviews
