HILARIOUS!
I loved every little bit of it. A good plot, awesome characters, and well it's real. The uncool are cool and the popular aren't anymore. Finally there's justice and Mr. Bigshot Brandon gets what he deserves. Talk about a perfect ending! :)

The back:
It was all a misunderstanding.

Up until two weeks ago,the sexiest thing Kevin Mopsely had touched his lips to was the spit-filled mouthpiece of his flute. But when he accidentally volunteers for the jock's Graduation Rituals, Kevin's social stock-- and his make-out record-- soars. All he has to do to preserve his alpha male status is compile the annual Book ofBusts, a record of the chest size of every girl in the senior class.
But as Kevin morphs from bumbling sweetheart into lying serial dater, his project sparks a full-blown feminist revolt at Brookbank High, pitting "GRRLS" against jerks. When he finds himself the prime object of disgust -- to his teacher, to himself, and, worst of all, to Abby White, the only girl who's ever liked him for who he is-- Kevin must decide if his newfound popularity is worth it.

"Your nose is bleeding, Kev," says Abby, looking concerned.
Taylor takes a peek. "Oh, I've got something to stop that." She rummages around her bag and pulls out a white cotton plug. "Just stay still."
There's total silence as Taylor leans toward me and delicately pushes the plug up my nose. Then everyone relaxes again, giggling once more about Brandon's recent poclamations.
And even though everyone's staring at me, I laugh too, because Brandon really is the stupidest person I've ever met.
:P
