With the success of Louise Rennison's books that chronicle the adventures of Georgia Nicholson, it was just a matter of time before we were treated to the male perspective on teenage life in England.  Fifteen-year-old Kevin is certainly not the most popular boy in school.  But when beautiful Vanessa arrives at school, it's love at first sight.  But how can someone like Kevin ever get noticed by the beautiful Vanessa?  Enter Jack -- Kevin's best friend.  Jack is a self professed "babe magnet".  As a matter of fact, he is actually writing a book on how to attract girls.  And he offers a sneak preview to Kevin -- who is not so sure he can pull this off.  Unfortunately, Jack's advice doesn't always work!
