Sure, hangovers and throwing up in gutters sounds glamorous, but Carol Martino has had it. Going into senior year, she’s going to straighten up. No more drinking, no more sex! The first step is to drop her handsome, but bad-influence boyfriend. The next step is to try to hook up with the school’s literary magazine editor, Gary McDevitt. He doesn’t smoke, he doesn’t drink, and judging by the literary magazine thing, it’s a good bet he’s a virgin.
Carol wants Gary to help straighten her life out, but to her surprise, their relationship becomes much more.
“A Girl’s Guide to Keeping Her Pants On” is told from Carol’s point of view, and is a sort-of sequel to “Pretty, Funny and Evil,” which is told from Gary’s point of view. They’re both standalone books and don’t have to be read in any order.
