"Think I could turn that boy bad?"
My two best friends--my only two friends, really--follow my gaze and laugh.
"Trevor Hoffman?" Beth scoffs. "No way, Jen."
"I bet I could," I say, shrugging.
"Why him?" Beth asks. "Why not any of the other nerds sitting there with him?"
"Because," I say slowly, "he isn't your typical run-of-the-mill geek. Trevor Hoffman is different. He would be a little more difficult to take down--more of a challenge, you know?"
Jen's teenage life of rebelling and sneaking out is growing stale. In an effort to combat her boredom, Jen makes a bet to turn Trevor, a nice geek, into a "bad boy." Unexpectedly, she is pulled into Trevor's world of sci-fi movies, charity work, and even--ugh!--bowling. Jen discovers that hanging out with Trevor isn't so bad after all.
But when Trevor finds out about the wager, all bets are off.

Cindy C Bennett was born and raised in beautiful Salt Lake City, growing up in the shadows of the majestic Rocky Mountains. She lives with her husband, two daughters, and two dogs. She also has two sons. She volunteers her time working with teen girls between the ages of 12-18, all of whom she finds to be beautiful, fascinating creatures. When she’s not writing, reading or answering emails she can often times be found riding her Harley through the beautiful canyons near her home. Please visit the author’s website at www.cindycbennett.com or her blog at http://cindybennett.blogspot.comFrom Booklist:
Jen presents herself as a hard case: she gets pushed out of various foster homes, scoffs at classmates outside her small goth circle, and makes a bet with her friends that she can turn the school’s star student, Trevor, bad. In less time than is credible, but with sufficient drama to maintain a reader’s wishful thinking, Jen and Trevor the “geek” not only fall in love but Jen finds herself turning geek as well. Bennett’s characters are conveniently flexible: difficult foster parents quickly prove perfect, and Jen is able to dump all her bad habits within just a few weeks of discovering Trevor’s real and ungeeky charms. While the story may be met with scoffing by anyone who lives the sort of life Jen has before her romance with Trevor, girls on the geek side of the aisle will find the opportunity to reflect upon the strength of character it takes for anyone—goth or geek—to stand up for herself, admit where she has gone wrong, and live through the agonizing time spent waiting for an apology to be accepted. Grades 8-10. --Francisca Goldsmith
