Ruth Pennebaker's first novel for teenagers was Don't Think Twice, an ALA Best Book for Young Adults, which Kirkus Reviews labeled a "masterpiece." Praise for Pennebaker's biting wit, sharp insight, and appealing characters was unanimous.

Now the author turns to a Dallas high school full of rich blondes, and to one thoughtful, hilarious, brunette with a deeply broken heart. Through fourteen-year-old Sarah Morgan, the author explores dating, friendship, and family--all the Conditions of Love.
