Josie has never met her dad. To Josie, Paul Tucci is just a guy who got her mom pregnant and then moved away. But now Paul Tucci is back in town, and Josie has to deal with not one but two men in her life--her father and her first boyfriend.
From the Publisher:
For sixteen years, Josie Gardner and her mom, Kate, have been a team. It's been the Gardner Girls against the world, and thatÕs how Josie likes it. Until one day, they find out that Paul Tucci, KateÕs high school boyfriendÑthe father Josie has never metÑis back in town. Josie's mom suddenly turns back into the heartbroken teenager she was when Paul moved away. Meanwhile, Josie's on the verge of having her first real boyfriend. And when Josie learns some surprising truths about Paul Tucci and the past, she begins questioning what she thought she knew, and finds out what happens when a girl gets the guy she always wanted and the dad she never knew she needed.
Annotation:
Family issues, first love, and lots of humor populate this engaging young adult novel. Josie's mom, Kate, had her when she was 16, and the two are as close as can be. Josie's dad was her mother's high school sweetheart, and is long gone. When they run into his parents at the supermarket, both mother and daughter begin to wonder how soon it will be before he makes an appearance. At the same time, Josie has her first boyfriend, and her best friend Liz's endless crises to deal with. Coping with her own feelings about her father, as well as her mother's, changes everything.

Praise

"Josie's dry sense of humor...helps balance out the heavier themes. Things wrap up a bit neatly and Josie tends toward the theatrical, but Friend...weaves a strong story that should hook readers." 03/22/2010
