 For anyone who's ever felt that boys were a different species....



Wildly creative seventh grader Kara McAllister just had her best idea yet. She's going to take notes on all of the boys in her grade (and a few elsewhere) in order to answer a seemingly simple question: How can she get a boyfriend?

But Kara's project turns out to be a lot more complicated than she imagined. Soon there are secrets, lies, and an embarrassing incident in the boy's bathroom. Plus, Kara has to deal with mean girls, her slightly spacey BFF, and some surprising uses for duct tape. Still, if Kara's research leads her to the right boy, everything may just be worth it. . . .

Full of charts and graphs, heart and humor, this hilarious debut will resonate with tweens everywhere
 
 
 
 
 This book was really good. It grabed me at the very first page and didn't let go to the last page. This book was so good that I didn't want to put it down at all. I finshed it in a day because it was so good. I liked how the main character put the date and when it was at the begging of every journal entry. Anther thing about the book that I liked was how there were graphs and test and different things that you could read and do along the story. A couple more things that I would like to add is that I liked how the main character was outgoing and brave. The last thing I have to say about this book is when she gt the advice from the girl on the internet it looked liked it was a real email in the book.
