On her very first day of work at her small-town grocery store, fifteen-year-old Ronnie develops a gigantic crush Nick, a good-looking teenage coworker in the produce department. Gregarious Ronnie seeks advice from various fellow grocery baggers and even adult customers on how to snag Nick's attention. Unfortunately, Ronnie is soon informed by older members of the staff that there is a workplace taboo about coworkers from different departments in the store dating. Ronnie considers this a ridiculous rule and refuses to let it impede her numerous comic attempts to catch Nick's eye.
This is a light-hearted, YA, chick lit romp. It is G-rated and suitable for all ages.
Note that this is not a romantic comedy. It is a typical "dating disasters" chick lit comedy.
I rate this story as follows:
