Gr 5-7-Nora McKibben, the shortest girl in the seventh grade, is ecstatic to be part of the ``in'' crowd. But then Dawn, the leader, starts pressuring her to flirt with Mark DeAngelo, the ``Make-out King.'' He is gorgeous, available, and seems to be interested in her. Nora hates to admit that she is inexperienced with boys and fears that if she confesses to her friends how naive she is, they will drop her. This novel draws upon several adolescent experiences (self-consciousness, boy/girl relationships, friendship loyalties) and combines them into a tale of a teenager's budding confidence. Several seemingly outdated games (fortune-teller, spin-the-bottle) are strongly integrated into the story line but do not detract from the humorous, deftly written prose. The well-defined, true-to-life characterizations sustain the plot and hold readers, who may see themselves in similar situations and learn from the way Nora handles them.-Jana R.
