Ninth grade.  A new start.  Josie was pretty popular in middle school but all bets are off now.  But then the unthinkable happens.  A senior asks her out!!  What a great life she has now.  She gets to go to the senior parties and sit with him at lunch.  Sure she is ignoring her own friends, but he is a senior and likes her.  Or is he just after another piece of freshmeat?  That can't be true, can it?  When Josie says no to his advances, he dumps her and finds Nicolette.  Heartbroken and angry, Josie feels the need to warn other girls about this boy.  Remembering Judy Blume's Forever, Josie heads to the library and writes her story in the back of the book.  Will other girls find the warnings and take heed?  Or will others fall for the false lines and the smooth smile?
