Summary:

"A fifteen-year-old creates an alter ego to woo his dream girl. Compulsively readable." - The New York Times

This quirky, flirty, and smart story will appeal to fans of Frank Portmans King Dork, John Greens An Abundance of Katherines, and Rainbow Rowells Eleanor and Park. Its not exactly a love story . . . but its pretty close.

Its 1977. Fifteen-year-old Vinnie is recovering from the worst case of acne his dermatologists ever seen. His girl moved to California without saying good-bye. And the ink on his parents divorce papers is barely dry when his mom announces theyre moving from Queens to Long Island. The silver lining? Moving next door to Patsy, everyones dream girl. Not that shed ever notice him. But when Vinnie calls Patsy one night, it leads to a chain of anonymous midnight conversations, and the two develop a surprisingly strong connection despite the lies its built on. But as Vinnie gets to know Patsy in real life, its clear that both identities cant survive. . . .From the Hardcover edition.
