"Hildy has only had two-and-a-half dates in her whole life, and she isn't counting the half. It's starting to look as if she's never going to have a third date, or be kissed, or know a boy who is more than just a friend. Then, on an ordinary day, she meets Connor of the melt-that-ice-cap smile-- and a summer that was going to be ordinary as toast turns into Hildy's summer of love. But love for Hildy is a little more complicated than the songs and movies have led her to believe. It's not so much girl-meets-boy-and loses-her-heart as boy-meets-girl-and-loses-his-mind. Part cautionary tale and part romantic comedy, Dyan Sheldon's wry, diary-style novel weighs in on all ends of the relationship scale in a story of first love."--
