Description

Josie lives her life in translation. She speaks High School, College, Friends, Boyfriends, Break-ups, and even the language of Beautiful Girls. But none of these is her native tongue. And Love? The most foreign language of all. So when being fluent in True Love becomes the only way to avert a sure catastrophe, Josie is forced to examine her feelings for the boy who says he loves her, the sister she loves but doesn't always like, and the best friend who hasn't said a word - at least not in a language Josie understands.

Insightful, poignant, and laugh-out-loud funny, this is an irrepressible love story about sisters, friends, boys, and how it feels to find someone, at last, who speaks your language. Can anyone be truly herself - or truly in love - in a language that's not her own?

'A story that's as funny, off-beat, and warm-hearted as its heroine . . . I was wowed.' Huntley Fitzpatrick, author of My Life Next Door and What I Thought Was True
