Banana Splitsville

Has he called? No. I half expected to see him at Truth or Dairy today. He's sort of addicted to Coconut Fantasy Dreams. We both are. It was like . . . our drink. I was all ready to give him the cold shoulder, easy to do when working around ice cream all day. I could give him a bad ice-cream headache, mix extra ice in his smoothie and freeze his brain. Like he could be any colder.Children's LiteratureCourtney Von Dragen Smith has just been dumped by her boyfriend Dave, who is a year older and wants to start college free and clear. As a result, Courtney starts a diary in which she swears off guys for the entirety of her senior year. Yet, she is confused by her emotions for Grant, a guy from school. She wants distractions, and since her work at Truth and Dairy is not enough, she runs for vice president of the senior counsel. However, that job lands her under an embezzlement investigation. Further, her mother is heading a campaign against a phone company; her grandparents have discovered Viagra; her dog keeps running away; and to top it off, her best friend Beth is hiding a secret: that she is dating Courtney's little brother. This book starts off slow and meanders through plot points, but the focus sharpens a bit by the end. It is told with a dry humor that is uniquely Clark's. The adventure continues in Clark's next book, Rocky Road Trip. Reviewer: Julia Wang
