Ralph looked away from me to another guy. "What do you think, Scott - a seven?" Scott looked me up and down. "Seven? Maybe." "Maybe on a good day," said another guy. "A really good day? Like last Friday?" Ralph replied. They were all laughing again. "You guys are pigs," I said. Jujube is thrilled when Brent asks her out. She is not so happy when the rumors start flying at school. Pretty soon her name is showing up on bathroom walls and everyone is snickering and sniping. When her mother gets involved, Jujube’s reputation takes another hit. Deciding that someone has to take a stand, Jujube gathers all the other girls who are labelled sluts—and worse—and tries to impress on her fellow students the damage that can be done by assigning a label that reduces a person to an object. Beth Goobie is an award-winning author of a number of books for teens. Her book Before Wings, won the CLA YA Book Award, was a Governor General’s Award nominee, an ALA Best Book nominee and a Teen Top Ten.
