During the summer before their senior year, Nina heads cross-country to attend a summer program on Stanford's campus, while her two pals waitress at a local restaurant. One morning after Avery has spent the night at Mel's house, the two share a kiss on the lips.
Some readers will find the descriptions of the duo's involvement overwrought or trite e. In a scenario totally lacking in subtlety, Nina just back from her program, at which she fell madly in love with a male student walks in on Avery and Mel while they are kissing in a store dressing room. Curiously, the novel's most sympathetic character is a supporting player, Parker, a funny and deep-feeling fellow who aspires—futilely—to date both Mel and Nina. Though the novel becomes more credible as it unfolds, for some readers, Johnson's tale may tread too close to soap opera turf, with its attendant stalled pace.
