Polly is a tough but also very vulnerable girl. Beginning from middle school and through college, Polly's got a string of boyfriends--a variety of punks and drunks. And she's got a story to tell about each one of them--from Tommy to Todd.

With an acid-tripping high school dropout, she experiences her first heartbreak. Later, while in love with an older red-head, she gets cheated on with not one, but two other girls. In college, she loses her virginity with a DJ and then later dumps him. Moving on, she's later raped at a party during spring break. Rejected, hurt, confused, humiliated, or dumped, Polly remains true and spunky to the end.

Author Amy Bryant's debut novel about a teenage girl living in the suburbs of the 1980s is strong, honest, and at times easy to relate to. Pick up a copy of POLLY and enter into her world of punk music, drugs, and hooking up with guys.

Recommended for girls who know what it is like to be misunderstood!
