In a comedy from the best-selling author of CONFESSIONS OF A TEENAGE DRAMA QUEEN, two popular girls vie to out-green each other to snare a boy. Fashion-crazy Sicilee is a poster child for over-consumption. Her archrival, Maya, wears arty vintage clothes but hasn’t a clue what’s in the food she eats. So when drop-dead gorgeous new student Cody Lightfoot sets out to spread his eco-ways—and spur the Environmental Club toward an all-out Earth Day bash—Sicilee and Maya have their work cut out to attract his attention. What if Sicilee trades her fur boots for walking shoes (even if she can’t find the school when she’s not inside a car)? What if Maya dresses in plastic bottles and bags to preach in front of the supermarket (until security is called)? Or could it be that Cody isn’t all he’ s cracked up to be, and that saving the planet really is more important than impressing a boy? With her trademark quick-fire wit, Dyan Sheldon shows just what girls will do for love—and what earth-changing realizations they might have along the way.

Sicilee and Maya focus their efforts into working for the formerly scorned club in their attempts to attract Cody, and they begin to find interests beyond their accustomed resolute superficiality.

Teen Reads

It's back to school after Christmas vacation, and Sicilee (the queen of the popular kids) and Maya (the hipster princess) are sure that high school will be back to business as usual: irritating each other, gagging down the school lunches, and ruthlessly making fun of the Environmental Club.

Maya loves wearing uber-hip vintage clothing and talking about causes, while Sicilee loves to shop and would never dream about wearing the same outfit more than once.
