I read it and I loved it. I loved it so much, you guys.
I waited a few days and then I read it again.
I turned it back into the library late because I couldn’t stand to part from it.
(For shame! I know, I know.)
Being Friends With Boys
by Terra Elan McVoy
Published by Simon Pulse
Publish Date: May 1, 2012
Charlotte and Oliver have been friends forever. She knows that he, Abe, and Trip consider her to be one of the guys, and she likes it that way. She likes being the friend who keeps them all together. Likes offering a girl’s perspective on their love lives. Likes being the behind-the-scenes wordsmith who writes all the lyrics for the boys’ band. Char has a house full of stepsisters and a past full of backstabbing (female) ex-best friends, so for her, being friends with boys is refreshingly drama-free…until it isn’t any more.
When a new boy enters the scene and makes Char feel like, well, a total girl…and two of her other friends have a falling out that may or may not be related to one of them deciding he possibly wants to be more than friends with Char…being friends with all these boys suddenly becomes a lot more complicated. –(summary from Goodreads)
“Being Friends With Boys is a fun, quirky, quick read that left me feeling all sorts of happy on the inside. I devoured it like I was eating the very best peach cobbler ever in the middle of the summertime. This book was written for me and validated a ton of things I feel as an adult, even though it was written with characters that are in high school, because even at this age of my life I have friends that are *gasp* BOYS.” –taken from my Being Friends With Boys blog post
Like I said earlier, I devoured this book. Inhaled it. Read and re-read passages. I felt like I had once been Charlotte and I sometimes still am Charlotte. She is a FANTASTIC character. So incredible. And I love her to pieces! (Yes, I realize I’m talking like she’s real. I told you all that I love this book).
ANYWAY…there’s a pretty big scene in Being Friends With Boys involving a Winter Formal. A lot of stuff happens at this point… If you’ve read it, then YOU KNOW. If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend you read it.
