If your mom says to get ready to play at the beach, she means with a boat, or a Frisbee, or a shovel. She is NOT talking about the piano. But Magnolia is a little girl with a big idea, determination, and one very heavy upright piano that, she insists, she needs to take with her. What's the worst that can happen? In a riotous series of mishaps, Magnolia quickly learns that-not surprisingly-a piano doesn't mix well with sand, sun, and seagulls!

Eine Gebrauchsanleitung in Sachen Liebe sollte wirklich endlich mal jemand schreiben!, findet die 16-jährige Penelope, als sie mit Karacho in ihre erste große Liebesgeschichte reinrauscht und, ohne über Los zu gehen, erst wieder an der Abfahrt »Herzensleid« zum Stehen kommt. Darauf bereitet einen wirklich keiner vor, weder Eltern noch Lehrer noch sonst wer von den angeblich so Erwachsenen. Genau betrachtet haben die nämlich auch kein Patentrezept in Sachen Liebe parat. Also beschließt Penelope, selbst dieses Buch zu schreiben, die Geschichte ihrer großen Liebe und deren Scheitern, entlang an all den kleinen Erinnerungsstücken, die sich durch Penelopes Liebesleben ziehen: vom ersten Händchenhalten im Kindergarten über den ersten kumpelig-peinlichen Kuss mit 11, bis hin zum ultimativen Date mit Mr Right.
