Synopsis

Andrea Robin Kaplan is a clique unto herself.

In other words, she has no friends. Her only goal is get through high school with the least amount of humiliation possible, which should be easy— nothing ever happens in the suburbs, right? Wrong.

One day, as Andi walks home from school, a little brown VW drives up and she meets Frank. Frank makes her feel beautiful and special. With Frank, Andi forgets how alone she is.

From boundary breaking author Lesléa Newman comes a haunting story about a girl who is all alone, and a man old enough to know better.

Readers are likely to simultaneously grow angry at Andi for her illusions about their relationship, and feel sorry for her as she is taken advantage of, and even forced into a sex act (described as ""something that makes what we did yesterday intercourse look like a walk in the park"").
