Megan Meade's Guide to the McGowan Boys-Kate Brian @ 6:13 AM
Summary (from jacket flap):
When she was nine, Megan Meade met a group of terrible, mean Popsicle-goo-covered boys, the sons of her father's friend-the McGowan boys. Now, seven years later, Megan's army doctor parents are shipping off to Korea and Megan is being sent to live with the little monsters, who are older now and quite different than she remembered them.
Living in a house with seven boys will give Megan, who has never been kissed, the perfect opportunity to learn everything there is to know about boys. And she'll send all her notes to her best friend, Tracy, in...
Description in one word: Bipolar
Kate Brian did a FANTASTIC job writing about Megan's adventure living with the McGowan boys. It kept me reading until the very end. I finished more than half of it in one day! The reason I say that this book is bipolar is because one minute Megan is loving the boys, and the next she just wants to rip their heads off. Although quite predictable, Megan Meade's Guide to the McGowan Boys is a very well written book.
The storyline of this novel is unique to my knowledge. I've never heard of a book quite like this, and when three of my friends recommended it to me, I just had to read it. Brian did a wonderful job writing about living with seven boys, and I can definitely relate, considering I'm the only girl in my family.
Overall, I would recommend Megan Meade's Guide to the McGowan Boys to anybody looking for a good romance novel along with some drama. I loved it, it's definitely on my to read (again) list, and it's just a wonderful book that keeps you smiling (most of the time).
