Perfect depiction of eighth-grade friends Danita and Laredo. Danita is less self-confident and not ready to sally forth and introduce herself to boys. Laredo has enough self-confidence for both, and calls up the perfect guy for Danita pretending to be her and arranges a date. Danita's life gets complicated when she keeps bumping into the perfect guy and he seems interested in her. What family secret is he trying to pump out of her? Is Danita old enough to handle the news?
