Natalie, a seventeen-year-old former drama club member who now writes a relationship column for her school newspaper, decides to go undercover as a student at an all-boys boarding school so that she can figure out what guys are really like.
Have you ever seen She's the Man? No?!?! What are you waiting for! Go watch it!
Babe in Boyland (Love the title by the way)was like She's the Man in a book version. While there re different reasons the girl goes undercover, they both start to have feelings for their roommate. Well they can't help if their roommate happens to be super hot.
Natalie writes for her school newspaper giving relationship advice. Everything is all and well, until her advice backfires. Natalie has an epiphany, literally, and realizes that she only has one side of the story. She has absolutely no idea how guys see relationships and that bugs the crap out of her. So at her bestfriends party she tries to ask a few guys what they think, but they're either scared of her, or trying to feel her up.
Natalie is fed up. With a lot of help from her friends, Natalie aka Nat goes undercover at an all boys school for a week to get some answers. What she never expected was hr roommate to be so hot, or to get so attached to these guys. Though falling for her roommate, of course he has another girl, and is trying to hook her up with another girl!
Babe In Boyland was a magnificent book. I love every minute reading it. Natalie was dedicated to her column and you can't blame a girl for trying to get answers. Though Natalie might have swallowed more than she could chew, it was definitely fun watching her go through it all. Of course in the end, everything turned out for the best.
Natalie acting as Nat was priceless. Absolutely funny. For us girls, how would you act if you put yourself in this situation? While we would all go about it a different way, Natalie was definitely unique for she went all the way.
While I doubt there will be a second book, a girl can dream! You'll want to snatch this book up as soon as it hits the shelves!
