From the Publisher
B: Hello, is this Jeff? J: Yeah, Who''s this? B: It''s not important. I''m just a messenger. I''ve been asked to inform you that Viv doesn''t want to go with you anymore. At all. Welcome to Barb and Dingbat''s Crybaby Hotline. Jeff can hardly believe it when he gets the second-hand news that his girlfriend is dropping him. And what''s with Barb anyway-why does she keep calling him, and why does he get the feeling she''s not telling him the whole truth? Much like Barb, this warm and clever novel written entirely in phone calls has more than a few tricks up its sleeve.
