Ralph dejó de mirarme y fijó la vista en otro chico.
—¿Qué crees, Scott... le damos un siete?
Scott me miró de arriba a abajo.
—¿Un siete? A lo mejor.
—En su mejor día, quizás —dijo otro chico.
—Ah, ¿en un buen día como el viernes?
—¿Cómo el viernes pasado? —completó Ralph.
Todos se echaron a reír otra vez.
—Todos ustedes son unos cerdos. —les dije.

Jinjoli está feliz cuando Brent la invita a salir, pero no tanto cuando los rumores empiezan a correr por la escuela. Muy pronto su nombre aparece en las paredes del baño y todos susurran y se ríen a su costa. Cuando su madre se involucra, la reputación de Jinjoli empeora todavía más. Convencida de que alguien tiene que hacer algo, Jinjoli reúne a otras chicas que han sido etiquetadas como chicas fáciles (o como cosas peores) y trata de hacer que sus compañeros entiendan todo el daño que puede ocasionar una etiqueta que reduce a una persona a un mero objeto.


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.
Puget Sound Council for Reviewing Children's Media - May 1, 2011
"Written at a level accessible to most middle school students and is an excellent resource for ELL and struggling readers...This book will fly off the shelf."
Tri State Young Adult Book Review Committee - May 1, 2009
"It is not written specifically with a Latino theme, but the problem is universal and will interest students who are native speakers of Spanish or those who are fairly fluent...A good story and will be a useful and popular title for libraries."
