Don't let the title of this book fool you. The "bad boy" in question is definitely bad, and the "can be good" part is more in the vein of "thank God I learned something out of this" rather than "oh, he's so gooood to me." That being said, every high-school age girl in the world needs to read this book, before they meet the proverbial bad boy who, although good at breaking your heart, isn't really good at anything else.

Told in verse, A BAD BOY CAN BE GOOD FOR A GIRL is the story of three girls at Point Beach High. Three very different girls: Josie, the super-confident, always responsible, throw-my-hair-up-in-a-ponytail-and- still-look-good girl; Nicolette, the girl who knows she's called a slut behind her back but doesn't care, because by using her body to get what she wants, she's always in control; and Aviva, the Criss-Crosser, who's not too smart, not too pretty, but always popular with every group she befriends.

Three girls, who all have the misfortune of meeting the same bad boy at PBH, not always at separate times. You know the type of bad boy I mean--he calls the freshmen girls "freshmeat"; the abandoned storage closet is his own personal "Red Light District"; the urge to get a girl on her back is much stronger than his desire to get good grades.

When Josie comes to her senses and sees what's happened to herself after being duped and dumped by the bad boy of PBH, she sets out to warn the other girls in school before it can happen to them. What happens next is a story of self-discovery, broken hearts, and renewed spirits for three very different girls.

A BAD BOY CAN BE GOOD FOR A GIRL is a wake-up call to every girl whose ever said she doesn't need a boyfriend to be complete--to every boy whose only looked at girls as a piece of meat with breasts. A great, inspiring read for all ages.
