They looked as if they belonged to an elderly man with a very large face and very bad eyes. Mary Jane was about to say something, when she looked up at Gwen's face. Gwen Stacy was nothing short of total babedom." "...the major gossip was about the new hot chick with Mary Jane Watson. 'Wait a sec, I thought the new hot chick was Mary Jane Watson.' 'Well, sure. Wearing a bright pink turtleneck.' 'Dude, I love turtlenecks on chicks!'" But of course, MJ doesn't judge anyone based on appearance, or their "color barf" sweaters or "cafeteria gravy" hair. That's simply not a thing that she does "Mary Jane Watson had always promised herself she'd never judge people solely on their looks. And yet, as she stared at the front page of the Daily Bugle, she couldn't help but wonder...was it terribly wrong for her to notice how fantastic Spider-Man looked in his tights?" "But clearly there was more to this person than just a great body and cling wrap attire." "Still, there was something more to Peter. He jumped over three bicycles piled by the flagpole without missing a step." Keep in mind that this is Peter Parker MJ is watching and at this point as far as she knows he is just a normal ordinary person and somehow she doesn't pick up on the fact that this is not a normal ordinary thing people do "'What about Spider-Man?

As someone who occasionally enjoys being a girly-girl and who is (always, not occasionally) a huge Spidey fan...

There is actually a part in the book where Mary Jane says something like: "Peter just asked me to go the the winter formal" and then the person she was talking to responds "Well, he's your boyfriend its not a surprise, who else was he going to go with?" Retyping is this makes it seem like it could have been funny or ironic or a joke, but in the book it wasn't. Mary Jane gets offended by the persons' response thinking, well if I can't talk about how excited I am Peter asked me to the dance what's the point of having friends. This book just has Mary Jane thinking she is responsible, so she must pay this. Mary Jane has spend the whole book going from one boring stupid thing to another dealing with paying the restaurant bill and thinking Peter was cheating on her.

In this story, its about Mary Jane and her struggles whether its with divorce, what you want in regards to your future, body image, fitting in, what it means to be a good friend, love, and so on.

The book revolves around MJ and her high school and home life, including Peter Parker, her boyfriend, and her group of friends.

She never finds out that Peter Parker is Spiderman, and you see things from her side.

Writing romance novels has got to be the way to make a living in the world. But it allowed me to write articles, answer the personal problems of teens (boys and zits were the big topics of concern), and rummage through the back files of the magazine. But as much as I loved reading those marvelous stories, what I really wanted to do was to write one. Unfortunately, still addled by the turmoil of being a new mom (hey, it's an excuse), I actually sent the wretched chapters to agents and publishers. I shoved them into a bottom drawer and stuck to articles, becoming a free-lance writer and full-time mom. A few years later I gave romance writing another try. This time I sent it to only one person, Linda Marrow, with whom I had worked at Pocket Books years earlier. And I'm lucky enough to write romance novels for a living.
