Girl v. Boy

Girl v. Boy
Yvonne Collins & Sandy Rideout
2008


Luisa Perez is not looking to
win any awards for school spirit.

In fact, she and her friends proudly avoid all things "extracurricular." But, unlike her high-school dropout sister, Luisa does want to go to college, and it would be nice to have something to put on her applications. Sh when a teacher volunteers her to be an anonymous columnist for the school paper, Luisa gives it a try.
Her first assignment is to cover her school's latest fund-raiser, which pits the girls against the boys. Luisa will cover the events from the female point of view, while another anonymous writer provides the male perspective--or, at least, that's how it begins. The two columnists soon find themselves engaged in an epic battle of the sexes--a battle that Luisa is determined to win, even if it means risking the best relationship she's ever had.

I quite enjoyed this book. It was funny and it kept me reading, not to mention the ending, it was great! I suggest you read this book. It was really cute!

Carzz's Review
I was way excited to read this book, utterly so. (I even made Hayz's buy it) However, I found it to be somewhat slow. It wasn't quite as I thought. Still a good book, and good ending. It's a great read, super easy, and funny.
