Gr. 9-12. Marcus and Frannie are "brain twins," best friends each looking for romance. Frannie thinks she has found just the person in Jeff, but she's much too shy and insecure to send him an e-mail. Marcus, on the other hand, has no problem finding the right words to keep Jeff interested, which he discovers when he impersonates Frannie. This is a creative, funny romance, written with style and sophistication. Marcus is gay, but Frannie is more nonchalant about his orientation than he is. Frannie is straight, but Marcus can better mimic the chat conversations that will intrigue the opposite sex. It's a classic tale of mistaken identity and inaccurate assumptions, filled with twists of plot that will tantalize and please teen readers. The general acceptance of Marcus' gayness within the high school and parent community is a refreshing example for YA readers, and it also sets a high bar for future teen novels featuring gay characters.
