What exactly do boys want?" asked Cat as we sat on the bus on our way to school. "I wish I could get into a boy's head for just twenty-four hours and see what goes on on in there."
"You wouldn't find a lot," said Squidge, laughing. "Not in Mac's head anyway."
Mac has three secret wishes: 1) Before he finds true love, he can date as many girls as possible, 2) he becomes a famous cartoonist, and 3) his parents get back together so that he can live in London again.
A double dare leads Mac into a series of dating disasters and a chance to prove his worth as a cartoonist for a magazine. However, he discovers that success, in love and work, sometimes comes at a high price. Is he ready to pay it?
