Anna remembers a time before boys, when she was little and
everything made sense. When she and her mom were a family,
just the two of them against the world. But now her mom is
gone most of the time, chasing the next marriage, bringing
home the next stepfather. Anna is left on her
discovers that she can make boys her family. From Desmond to
Joey, Todd to Sam, Anna learns that if you give boys what
they want, you can get what you need. But the price is
high—the other kids make fun of her; the girls call her a
slut. Anna's new friend, Toy, seems to have found a way
around the loneliness, but Toy has her own secrets that even
Anna can't know.
Then comes Sam. When Anna actually meets a boy who is more
than just useful, whose family eats dinner together, laughs,
and tells stories, the truth about love becomes clear. And
she finally learns how it feels to have something to
lose—and something to offer. Real, shocking,
stunningly lyrical, Uses for Boys is a story of breaking
down and growing up.
