When Tony's mother's fourth husband dies, Tony ends up taking care of his mother and himself. As the new kid in high school, he vows to blend in with the crowd and avoid attachments. But he soon meets Jordan, who's both intriguing and flamboyant, and dressed in black. It's no wonder Tony often dials a self-help hotline called Confess-O-Rama. While Tony pours out his heart and secrets, little does he know that Jordan runs Confess-O-Rama and plans to use all the dialogue for an auditory art exhibit. A "School Library Journal" Best Book of the Year.
