In the title story, Darla wants a boyfriend, and her entire life revolves around getting one boy to notice her. Change tells of how a conversation with an elderly family member on Halloween night subtly alters the course of a young womans life.All seventeen-year-old Jay wants is some peace and quiet, and he gets it when he is accidentally locked in a storage room all night in The Storage Room. In Jamie and Amy, a young man is dying to ask an older girl for a date but is mortified by the way their names sound together.8 Girls Are In Love With Me and 8 Boys Are In Love With Me tell the surprising tale of a scheduling mix-up at a summer camp that leads two counselors to teach swimming lessons to a group of difficult kids, and in Faking It, Juliet doesnt expect to make any friends during her European vacation, but thats before a hot Australian guy introduces himself to her.Both the serious and trivial sides of the human psyche merge in the sometimes somber, oftentimes hilarious, but always thought-provoking collection of stories in Matching Panties.
