Brock Cole. Farrar Straus Giroux, $8.99 (224pp) ISBN 978-0-374-41082-7

In PW 's words, ``The typical girl-meets-boy story gets turned inside out in this witty, offbeat novel. Cole's irrepressible heroine somehow manages to get the best of almost every situation. Her wry comments on everything from modern art to divorce are as perspicacious as they are delightful.'' Ages 12-up. (Sept.)
