I. Love. This. Book. Look at the cover, isn't it amazing? I love the cover just as much as I love the story inside it. This cover reminds me of the Lottie Biggs books (by Hayley Long) as it's chaotic, fun, bright and intriguing!
This is about a tomboy called Gwynnie....she has plenty of friends who are boys, and all of the boys like her, except they don't seem to see her as a girl - they count her as one of the guys. As time goes on, this starts to bother Gwynnie and she takes dramatic steps to become the stereotypical girl - lip gloss, boy bands, shopping sprees....bye-bye football, pizza-eating contests and scruffy trainers!
This is a really enjoyable novel and I think quite a few girls will relate to it. It is also really funny, and the characters are genius and true to life, while there are lots of sub-plots to keep you interested.
Even if you don't enjoy this book (you will, though) you'll find that you keep reading just to see how the whole story concludes.
I loved this, and I give it 5/5! There are some parts in the book that may not be suitable for younger kids, so I give it an age rating of 10+.
