First off, here’s a description of the book. Josh Mendel, a high school senior, meets up with Rachel, a girl he thought he lost shortly after his thirteenth birthday. To make a long story short, he was found in the closet with her, ripping off her panties while playing a party game that was half “Spin the Bottle” and half “Seven Minutes in Heaven”. As if that wasn’t bad enough, just when Rachel’s family was about to press charges, he accidentally mentions that he’s been screwing around with his seventh-grade history teacher for the past year. Josh has lived through therapy, lawsuits, and baseball coaches dumb enough to crack jokes about this situation, but he still can’t put everything behind him, not even when Rachel’s dying to get back together with him after being alone for five years.
