About The Book

Bolita (Bo for short) and Kyle are not exactly in the same clique: She’s the shy girl working backstage at the school play, and he’s front and center as Time Zone High’s star quarterback. But then Kyle blows out his knee, quits football, and joins the school play—and Bo decides it’s time for a change.
     After a DIY makeover, Bo realizes she and Kyle aren’t in such different cliques anymore. Now that she has his attention...can Bo turn Kyle into more than a friend?
