Editors Note
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
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.
