Piddy Sanchez's life is falling apart. Her best friend moves away, she and her mother move to a new apartment, and Piddy's maturing body attracts attention from boys at her new high school. Adjusting to her new school becomes even more difficult when Yaqui, the girlfriend of one of these boys, decides Piddy is shaking her blossoming bootie at her boyfriend. Her bullying starts with one of her "gang" telling Piddy, "Yaqui Delgado wants to kick your ass." Smart and not intentionally shaking her bootie at anyone, Piddy thinks reason can solve the problem, but as Yaqui's bullying continues and grows ever more violent, Piddy has to make some tough decisions about how to handle the situation that has her cutting classes, lying to her mother and denying who she is.
