Baker & Taylor
Jujube struggles to restore her tarnished reputation when Brent Floyd, her date for the Valentine's Day dance, spreads vicious rumors about what happened that night.

Orca Book Publishers
Jujube is thrilled when Brent asks her out. She is not so happy when the rumors start flying at school. Pretty soon her name is showing up on bathroom walls and everyone is snickering and sniping. When her mother gets involved, Jujube's reputation takes another hit. Deciding that someone has to take a stand, Jujube gathers all the other girls who are labelled sluts--and worse--and tries to impress on her fellow students the damage that can be done by assigning a label that reduces a person to an object.

Also available in Spanish.
After developing an unearned reputation as a slut, Jujube finds a novel way to take on her tormentors and help a group of girls win back their self-esteem.

Excellent book . Jujube handled the false labelling and the grafitti on the bathroom walls with the false accusations that can ruin a reputation and self esteem very effectively. She took back her life and helped other females in the process. .
Showed there's power in dealing with a situation instead of running from it.

I did not like this book, I found it to be really dumb. I only finished it because it was so short.
