The Manhattan Free Children's school is a small private school housed in a crumbly old brown-stone near Gramercy Park. The school appears to be based on A.S. Neil's Summerhill in Great Britain where the children have the personal freedom to discover who they are and where their interests lie.

Fourteen-year-old Felicia's interests lie in future scientist Matthew Dwyer, who spends all his time in the lab with his fat, happy, psychic rabbits.

How do you win the heart of a scientist? Engage him in an important research project. Felicia suggests the Search for X, which is the thing that makes the one you love, love you back. While Matthew finds the project interesting and is betting that it'll win the top science fair award, Felicia is having a hard time finding X.

While the title is a bit raunchy, this book is squeaky clean and the plot is hilariously original. The characters are a credit to the Pound, which is what Felicia and her friends call their school since they refer to themselves as Kittens and their guy friends as Dawgs. Only at the Pound could you learn about love and put together a science project at the same time.
