朱莉安娜·贝克虔诚地相信三件事:树是圣洁的,特别是她最爱的无花果树;她在后院里饲养的鸡下的蛋是最卫生的;总有一天她会和布莱斯·罗斯基接吻。二年级时,在看到布莱斯蓝眼睛的那一瞬间,朱莉的心就被他击中了。不幸的是,布莱斯对她从来都没有感觉。而且,他认为朱莉有点怪,怎么会有人把养鸡和坐在树上看成乐趣呢?没想到,到了八年级,布莱斯开始觉得朱莉不同寻常的兴趣和对于家庭的自豪感使她显得很有魅力。而朱莉则开始觉得布莱斯漂亮的蓝眼睛也许和他本人一样,其实很空洞。毕竟,怎么会有人不把别人对树和鸡的感觉当回事呢?

The first time she saw him, she flipped. The first time he saw her, he ran. That was the second grade, but not much has changed by the seventh. She says: “My Bryce. Still walking around with my first kiss.” He says: “It’s been six years of strategic avoidance and social discomfort.” But in the eighth grade everything gets turned upside down. And just as he’s thinking there’s more to her than meets the eye, she’s thinking that he’s not quite all he seemed. This is a classic romantic comedy of errors told in alternating chapters by two fresh, funny new voices. Wendelin Van Draanen is at her best here with a knockout cast of quirky characters and a hilarious series of misunderstandings and missed opportunities. But underlying the humor are two teens in transition. They are each learning to look beyond the surface of people, both figuring out who they are, who they want to be, and who they want to be with.
