From the Inside Flap:

Meet teenage playwright David Mahooley. Ever since his ex-girlfriend tried to skewer herself on the school flagpole, he can't bring himself to write a word. Enter fast-talking Della Jones, an actress and writing coach with a gym bag full of massage oil, vodka, houseplants, and experiments in "mutual grooming." Her outrageous ways are enough to set David's mind and heart spinning and inspire a new kind of play.

It will be his masterpiece -- a play about teenage love the way it really is: burning, boiling, and passionate. David will write it. Della will be the star. But each new scene brings startling revelations about Della's past. And by the time the truth of it all is written. the two of them will never be the same.

From the Back Cover:

"Funky, at times outrageous, this character study of two creative Manhattan teens who just might be in love... reads like greased lightning." -- The Horn Book Magazine
