Can anyone be truly herself—or truly in love—in a language that's not her own?

Can anyone be truly herself—or truly in love—in a language that's not her own?

Sixteen-year-old Josie knows a lot of languages: she speaks High School, College, Friends, Boyfriends, Break-ups, and even the language of Beautiful Girls.  But none of these is her native tongue – the only people who speak that are her best friend Stu and her sister, Kate.  So when Kate gets engaged to an insufferable guy, how can Josie see it as anything but the mistake of a lifetime? 
As battles are waged over secrets and semantics, Josie is forced to examine her feelings for the boy who says he loves her, the sister she loves but doesn't always like, and the best friend who hasn't said a word – at least not in a language Josie understands. 
'A true-blue lovable weirdo, [Josie is] the type of character I really enjoy seeing . . . authentically herself, even when being herself gets her into trouble.' Hellogiggles
