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?
Babe In Boyland by Jody Gehrman is somewhat like She’s The Man. Scratch that, it is She’s The Man with some changes like there’s theatre, Natalie Rowan turned Nat Rodgers only stayed in Underwood Academy, an all-boys school, for a week, and her purpose for staying there is to uncover some of the secrets of the male specie. I guarantee that this book will make you laugh and Natalie (or Nat) will irritate you most of the time.
This book is nice but I must say, Natalie is not really the best character. I got annoyed at her 70% of the time while reading the book because of Natalie. Emilio Cruz though… in my imagination, he is one drop-dead gorgeous Latino who is really sweet and nice and beautiful.
Jody Gehrman made me look at guys in a new way. She was able to show me a new side to guys. I highly recommend this book to those people who enjoyed She’s The Man (the movie) and those shows wherein a girl enters an all-boys school for personal reasons. 🙂
