One high school girl's comedic examination of her dating past as told by the friends, family, and the boys who were involved!

Avery Dennis is a high school senior and one of the most popular girls in her class. But a majorly public breakup with the guy she's been dating causes some disastrous waves. It is right before prom and Avery no longer has the perfect date. She runs the prom committee, how could she not show up with somebody?

Post-breakup, Avery gets to thinking about all of the guys that she has ever dated. How come none of those relationships ever worked out? Could it be her fault? Avery decides to investigate. In history class she's learning about this method of record-keeping called "oral history" and she has a report due. So Avery decides to go directly to the source. Avery tracks down all of the guys she's ever dated, and uses that information along with her friends, family, and even teachers thoughts, to compile a total account of her dating history.

Avery discovers some surprises about herself and the guys she's spent time with just in time for prom night!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from For teens I feel as if I reverted back to my high school self while reading this one. Its format is strange - an oral history project - and its content is incredibly cheesy, but it was a quick and somewhat enjoyable read. Avery Dennis interviews her many exes, searching for evidence of why she finds herself currently single. It was mildly entertaining, but wouldn’t pick it up again.
