After eighth-grader Patty Dillman gets a faceful of football while watching the team practice., Tim Shokov (the thrower of the pass and a real hunk) phones up to apologize. Before Patty knows it, they're a couple.
So where does that leave Tracy Gilmore, Patty's best and oldest friend? Tracy used to be able to interest Patty in making all kinds of trouble...with no trouble at all. But lately Patty is interested only in Tim--seeing Tim, talking about seeing Tim, talking to Tim, talking about talking to Tim, thinking about Tim, talking about thinking about Tim...until Tracy is ready to scream! Even though she and Patty still see each other almost daily, they might as well be on different planets. Can this friendship be saved?
