Can tru luv pass the test?

Bliss and Tamra are totally convinced that their boyfriends' hearts lie in the palms of their hands. But when two cynical and mischievous friends beg to differ, a wager is born. An online game of cat-and-mouse ensues, where girl must tempt best friend's boy, resulting in a comedy of love, hate, flirtation, and revelation.

Told entirely in chat, IM, text, and blog format, this glimpse into games of the heart is as topsy turvy and surprising as . . . your high school love life.
