Did you hear...?

NATALIE WAGNER, random freshman: Avery Dennis--the Avery Dennis--got dumped right before prom.

COCO KIM, best friend: Avery has never been dumped! Well, okay, except for this one time.

BIZZY STANHOPE, officially the worst: The head of the prom committee doesn't have a date to the prom. It is beyond pathetic.

JAMES "HUTCH" HUTCHERSON, lab partner: Did Avery really swear off dating until she discovers why her relationships never work out? I'll believe that when I see it.

ROBBY MONROE, ex-boyfriend: Did you get interviewed by Avery Dennis for her project?

TRIPP GOMEX-PARKER, ex-boyfriend: Avery Dennis is straight-up interviewing everyone.

AVERY DENNIS: recently dumped/topic of much gossip: Okay. Everyone is talking about it, so let's talk about it...

From rising star Stephanie Kate Strohm, this is a laugh-out-loud look at one girl's epic dating history, as told by her friends, family, and foes.
