Becca thinks she's through with boys. That is, until Squidge proposes his dare -- to kiss the next boy who comes onto the beach. The boy she picks has just arrived on holiday from London and is taken by surprise, but very happy with such a welcome. When Becca stands back and sees him properly, she realises that she quite fancies him too. However, life is never that simple. Her parents' marriage is on the rocks and Becca becomes increasingly stressed about what is going to happen to her. She questions everything to do with relationships, and looks closely at what she wants from a boyfriend: is it escape, companionship, trust or someone to turn to? With the support of her friends, she takes steps to discover what she truly values in her life.
