Their first date may just be his last!
A charming young man finally makes a date with the woman of his dreams, but finds the evening becoming a nightmare.

"Fast and funny!  Los Angeles Times
"For the right's an amusing and frenetic ride.  Desson Howe, Washington Post

Editor's Note
After spending an entire summer obsessing over the beautiful girl housesitting next door, shy Tom allows his slick, more confident brother Craig to set him up on a date with her. The operation involves a "Craig" makeover, the theft of Craig's classic car, borrowed identification, and, unfortunately, three dead bodies, a psychotic florist, and lethal threats from a Chinatown mob boss. An above-average teen "caper" romance, with a few unusually grim plot points.

Plot Summary
Shy teen Tom McHugh longs to ask out the beautiful girl-next-door, but can't seem to work up the nerve until his older brother Craig, home from law school, sets the two up on a date. Craig even lends Tom his car, clothes, and his credit cards, which leads to a case of mistaken identity as Tom and his date are pursued by his brother's enemies, including the Chinese Mafia.
