From a bestselling author comes a fun, flirty look at first love!
High school senior Mary Jane Ettermeyer has been the good girl for a long time. To date, she's proud to say she's been able to keep her pledge of abstinence (not that anyone has challenged it). But when the cutest guy in school starts flirting with her, she suddenly finds herself crazy in love. Even though her inner Plain Jane is telling her he can't possibly think she's cute, her inner Sexy M. J. is questioning her vow to keep herself pure until marriage. Not to mention that hot Jackson House shouldn't even be talking to her, because he already has a girlfriend! There are a ton of good reasons why she should never speak to Jackson again, except that every time she sees him, all of her resistance seems to melt away. . . .

Dandi Daley Mackall is theauthor of numerous books for children, includingLarger-Than-Life Lara. She lives in West Salem, Ohio,with her husband and their three children.From School Library Journal:
Grade 8 Up—Mary Jane, 17, is a good student, adores her mentally challenged older sister, and has a loving family. She also has a huge crush on Jackson House, Star Simons's sexy boyfriend. When Mary Jane and Jackson take her car to get more soda during a party, almost immediately her friends start ignoring her and other boys call for dates. It turns out that Star is spreading rumors that Mary Jane is easy. Then Jackson breaks up with Star, and Mary Jane's life is transformed. The two are together constantly, and Jackson really seems to love her. That's why she is so tempted when he tells her that, with his parents away, they can be alone together in his house the night after Thanksgiving. Even after buying sexy undies, though, Mary Jane realizes that she wants to wait until she finds someone who will spend his whole life with her, in marriage. Reluctantly, Jackson accepts her decision, and the novel ends with Mary Jane wondering whether they'll remain a couple. Despite her fear of losing him, she knows that she'll be OK eventually either way. Mackall hits the nail on the head with her poignant description of first love and sexual yearning. The protagonist is an average middle-class girl who struggles hard with her decision. Teens will relate to her and will be disappointed when the story ends.—Susan Riley, Mount Kisco Public Library, NY
