Joylin has always loved and been talented with basketball, and she has spent much of her years with male friends on the court. Now, however, things are changing. A new boy, Santiago, is on the court, and Joylin completely loses her power of speech when she sees him. Suddenly, she starts to question her clothing choices: the other girls around her, including her best friend, are trying makeup and heels, and Santiago seems to like girly girls. Her best male friend, Jake, becomes awkward with her on the basketball court, apologizing for touching her in ways they've done for years during games. To make matters worse, she is developing, and her mother embarrasses her when they go shopping. This novel in verse is a read about growing up, changing relationships, and choosing who you want to be.
