Mouse and Paulie, reluctant fourteen-year-old boarders at Bath Ladies College, are confronted by the slippery quest for one small, vital thing: the thing that definitively makes boys different from girls.
The novel was made into the feature film Lost and Delirious , shown in 34 countries. Since the film's debut, young women all over the world have role-played the parts of Mouse, Tory and Paulie on the Lost and Delirious website.

The plot of this book was better than the actual writing, which I found tedious. This is one of the few times where I thought the movie was better than the book.
