Babe In Boyland!
Favourite Quote: "I despise the rituals of fake friendship. I wish we could just claw each other's eyes out and call it a day; instead we put on huge radiant smiles and spout compliments until our teeth hurt from the saccharine sweetness of it all."
This was a light, funny, feel-good book that was the perfect summer read for me! Although it's not in my top contemporary books, I would still recommend. I give this book a 3/5 stars!
The plot reminded me of the movie She's The Man, kind of the same story - girl pretends to be a boy, falls for her roommate, makes true friends with the guys etc but the drama aspect made sure it was unique! I felt it was cheesy at some parts but it didn't make me cringe instead it made me smile! But the plot overall was entertaining and hilarious plus it did give a good insight to male and females minds!
As for the characters I really liked and connected with Natalie, she was the perfect main character for this type of book. She was witty, funny, girly and so on, a great character. Then there's Emilio who was just perfect I loved him, the perfect boyfriend in my eyes! Natalie's best friends were great as well, liked them a lot. Another favourite character of mine was Tyler, he was just the right amount of nerdy and sweet!
Overall I would recommend this to anyone looking for a fun, light, summer read! by Moodyno1
