questions, and the most confusing ones of all concern the nature of love Stead focuses on Bridge Barsamian, her best girlfriends, and her newest friend Sherma boy who is definitely not her boyfriend probably They re navigating the shoals of adolescence on Manhattan s Upper West Side Emily has suddenly developed a figure that attracts a lot of attention, Tabitha is an increasingly committed human rights activist, and Bridge has taken to wearing a headband with black cat s ears for reasons that are unclear even to her The seventh graders aren t the only characters working out relationships
