520    Rebelling against the role others believe she should 
       conform to, Billie McCaffrey struggles with her feelings 
       for two of her friends. 
520    As the tomboy daughter of the town’s preacher, Billie 
       McCaffrey has always struggled with fitting the mold of 
       what everyone says she should be. She’d rather wear sweats
       , build furniture, and get into trouble with her solid 
       group of friends: Woods, Mash, Davey, Fifty, and Janie 
       Lee.  But when Janie Lee confesses to Billie that she’s in
       love with Woods, Billie’s filled with a nagging sadness as
       she realizes that she is also in love with Woods…and 
       maybe with Janie Lee, too.  Always considered “one of the
       guys,” Billie doesn’t want anyone slapping a label on her 
       sexuality before she can understand it herself. So she 
       keeps her conflicting feelings to herself, for fear of 
       ruining the group dynamic. Except it’s not just about 
       keeping the peace, it’s about understanding love on her 
       terms—this thing that has always been defined as a boy and
       a girl falling in love and living happily ever after. For 
       Billie—a box-defying dynamo—it’s not that simple.  Readers
       will be drawn to Billie as she comes to terms with the 
       gray areas of love, gender, and friendship, in this John 
       Hughes-esque exploration of sexual fluidity.
