Hello! I'm having some difficulty remembering a book I read as a teen. I read it in Jr High and again in High School, but its been so long and although I can't get it out of my mind, I also can't remember specific details.
Plot goes something like this, but it might not be exact. This is just what I seem to remember about it:
It's about a girl in High School that is sorta the un-noticed girl in school. She's not exactly an outcast, but is unpopular. And she has two best friends, one girl and one boy, (sorry, can't remember any names) that have been with her for most of her life. But then when a new boy moves in her neighborhood the two of them are attracted almost instantly and their relationship boosts her popularity at school. They start dating and I can't really remember much after that except it becomes apparent that her guy friend is in love with her. I'm pretty sure she eventually figures it out and realizes she has feelings for him as well, but I can't remember. I also seem to recall her having an odd pet, a turtle or a lizard, something out of the ordinary.
I also keep thinking one of the characters worked in a pizzeria. Either the main character or her guy friend, not sure.
The cover I remember almost exactly...its got the three main characters on it. The background is blue(?) and the girl is in front with a sorta dreamy look on her face looking out of the corner of her eyes at the boys behind her, like shes trying to choose between them. Then the boys are on either side of her in the background. One is the good guy and the other is like a bad boy, dressed in a leather jacket and long hair tied in a pony tail, but I can't remember which is which.
First time I read it would have been the early 2000's, so it was probably published sometime between then and the 1990's.
Please help if you have any idea what it might be! I've tried google and a bunch of books sites and I just can't find it with unclear details!
Thanks to the people at Ipl2 (http://www.ipl.org/) the book has been located! =
