Gert Garibaldi's Rants and Raves: One Butt Cheek at a Time

By Amber Kizer

Gert (short for Gertrude) has a "One Butt Cheek At A Time" philosophy on life (kind of like 'one small step at a time,' but she doesn't want to offend the people without feet. And, err... everyone has a butt, right?)

So Gert is 15, and her best friend is Adam. Adam's gay, and has a crush on Tim, who has a twin brother, Lucas, that Gert likes.

Lucas ignores her. Gert is forced to do a group project with her arch enemy. She needs to look at her private parts in a mirror for a sex ed class! She has to survive Adam getting a boyfriend and not spending time with her anymore. And then there's the homecoming dance - how is she ever going to make it to 16?

That's right. One Butt Cheek at a Time.

I found this book rather boring. This is probably partly because I'm in high school, and it's a very accurate portrayl of high school. If you're interested in a teenager's psyche, this book is for you, but I happen to spend 24 hours a day inside a teenagers psyche, so the book wasn't very entertaining
