Submitter: I am taking care of a much-neglected teen section at a public library, and I found this little gem in the stacks. The title is enough to make me wonder, but this book also hasn’t circulated since 2005. Nearly a decade on the shelf is long enough. If I ever get a chance to read the book, I’ll be sure to write in and let you all know the true meaning of cleavage.
Holly: Well, the title is certainly “titillating.” (Too far?) At first, I thought this was non-fiction, but thankfully it is clearly teen fiction. The description at Worldcat says, “When Jess and Sari, best friends since seventh grade, begin their freshman year of high school and Sari becomes obsessed with a senior boy, Jess wonders if their friendship will survive.” It sounds like any number of books in teen fiction, actually. I agree that sitting on a shelf for ten years makes it a weeding candidate. (It’s actually been sitting on my own library’s shelves since July of 2012, but has 35 total circulations so it hasn’t met the ax yet.)
