Summary
Most 15-year-old boys are obsessed with the opposite sex, Oscar is no exception. He is an honor student at an exclusive prep school, he is confident, intelligent, speaks fluent French, and is well versed in literary works. His parents are divorced and his father has recently remarried. Sensing that his stepmother isn't happy in the marriage, Oscar begins waging a low-key but ardent campaign to seduce her. His efforts to bed Eve attract the attention of one of her close friends, Diane, a smart and sexy chiropractor who also becomes the not-entirely-unwelcome focus of Oscar's romantic attentions
