Margaux with an X by Ron Koertge

A sharp-tongued beauty meets a quirky, quick-witted loner in this funny, poignant new novel from the author of SHAKESPEARE BATS CLEANUP and STONER & SPAZ. Shes drop-dead gorgeous, has a razor-sharp wit, and is a charter member of the schools most popular clique. Margaux (with an x) is the dream catch of every teenage male within her radar. Encouraged by her caustic friend Sara, shes perfected the art of the sarcastic tease, while keeping her sweaty-palmed suitors just far enough at bay. Its a dreary game, but at least shes not home with Mom, the shopping channel addict, Dad, the professional gambler, and a certain haunting secret from her past. Then along comes Danny Riley a scrawny, weak-chinned, animal-loving oddball with a quaint chivalrous streak, a kindhearted kid who can match her banter to the polysyllable and who harbors a few painful memories of his own. Only in the hands of Ron Koertge would such an unlikely pair find each other and reward the reader with such satisfying, straight-shooting repartee, full of angst and wisdom, humor and heart.
