Summary: When high school junior Natalie--or Dr. Aphrodite, as she calls herself when writing the relationship column for her school paper--is accused of knowing nothing about guys and giving girls bad relationship advice, she decides to investigate what guys really think and want.
But the guys in her class won't give her straight or serious answers. The only solution? Disguising herself as a guy and spending a week at Underwood Academy, the private all-boy boarding school in town. There she learns a lot about guys and girls in ways she never expected--especially when she falls for her dreamy roommate, Emilio. How can she show him she likes him without blowing her cover?
Review: There are no words no describe how much I loved this book. It was the ultimate fun book, and I enjoyed every second that I got to spend reading it!
I love books where a girl dresses up as a boy and goes and lives with them. They are usually hilarious, and Babe in Boyland was no exception. It was so funny, I cracked up laughing out loud!
I loved Natalie, or Nat when she was a guy. She was funny, and absolutely brilliant. She was just...so alive and likable. I loved how she was so determined to get answers to all her questions about boys. And her friends were so funny too, and really supportive of Natalie and her "mission."
Emilio. Now that boy was drop dead dreamy. Seriously, I'm not lying. He was also one of the sweetest guys I have ever read too. And he said some pretty hilarious things...! This is the book with all the awesome one-liners.
Babe in Boyland is most definitely one of my favorite books of 2011. It was sweet, insightful, had a bunch of awesome characters and...guess what??
IT WAS FUNNY!
