Antonia is a "nerd," and Jazz is a "punk." Antonia belongs to the math club. Jazz hangs out at the tattoo parlor. Antonia's parents are divorced and her mother suffers from depression. Jazz is from a wealthy, traditional family. But when these two very different girls find themselves facing each other in a peer-counseling program, they discover they have some surprising things in common. Alternately funny and heart-wrenching, this is an absorbing read that will keep readers thinking and laughing.
