About Gert Garibaldi’s Rants and Raves: One Butt Cheek at a Time
GERT GARIBALDI ISN’T ONE OF those people who believe high school is the best part of life. She has a whole notebook full of rants about high school, and she’s fully aware of how ridiculous the experience is, thank you very much. Gert just wants to survive the next three years, one butt cheek at a time, with her best friend, Adam, by her side – and maybe Luscious Luke attached to her lips. With a stapler. Or something. But muddling through isn’t even as easy as it seems – there are geriatric parents to deal with, Homecoming festivities (admit itÑthose words just sent a little chill down your spine), crushes, ed (both sex and driving), and potential new boyfriends – for both Gert and Adam.
