Babe In Boyland - Jody Gehrman

Synopsis: 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: This was a really light fun read. Definitely different to the deep books I have been reading of late, and so this was a pleasant change of pace.

Natalie in a bid to to an undercover journalism piece, finds herself going in drag as “Nat” to all boys school Underwood Acadamy with the goal in mind that she will get the answers to the questions that girls have about them. Whilst she is there, she has quite a number of eye opening experiences and also finds herself falling in love with Emilio, her latino roommate.

I found it to be really entertaining, I read it all in one sitting, because it was just so easy to get through and I found myself really wanting Emilio to find out about her being Natalie and reciprocating her feelings for him!

It took me back to high school where my girlfriends and I were preoccupied with boys, relationships, makeup and yes.. acting. I was an actor… a bad one… but an actor none-the-less. Definitely worth a read if you want something light that will make you laugh and make you feel good!

  • Not sure from your review if I should do this book or not but I just had to say…That cover is awesome! Total eyecandy, it would fly off the shelves of my library. May order it just for it’s cover.

      The cover is honestly what drew me in - and I know it’s a common phrase to never judge a book by it’s cover, but it’s done me well in life to judge. LOL
