I just can’t face the urinals! They’re way too terrifying. The smell, the exposed bits, the shame. Isn’t using a stall the same as announcing I have to take a dump? How completely embarrassing!

I just can’t face the urinals! They’re way too terrifying. The smell, the exposed bits, the shame can hardly line up with the others and whip out my sock. After several agonizing hours of holding it, though, I can’t handle another second. I scuttle to the bathroom with my knees together. Despite my urgent need to relieve myself, I pause at the door, heart pounding.

Natalie writes an advice column about relationships but quickly learns that she's missing one key ingredient in giving accurate advice to girl like her who just want to know why guys act the way they do. A guy's insight. So in order to uncover the truth, Natalie transforms herself into Nat and spends a week at an all boys school. But when she falls for her roommate, a complicated situation is made even more complicated, and Natalie has to finish her investigation without being discovered while untangling a slew of emotionally tangled webs.

I really liked this book. It reminded me a lot of the movie She's The Man. The reasoning was different for the undercover work and the points were all hit a bit differently but the basics were the same. Go undercover as a guy. Fall for the hot roommate. Meet the hot roommate as the real you (girl). And other details I don't want to give away. However, for a book with this theme, the similarities are hard to avoid, so I'm not comparing the book and the movie to suggest flaws in anyway, just obvious similarities that readers might notice had they seen the movie.

So what did I think? It was fun, a fast read, and actually really enlightening! I've been with my husband for seven years, at this point I know most of the inner details. Overtime, guys open up for one reason or another and kind of let you into their head a bit. But this book would have been ideal right around the time that I met him. I'm pretty much the same person around everyone. I've never been good at hiding aspects of myself depending on who I was around. I think it's genetic. Sure, I never acted like a weird, fake, overly enthusiastic girl simply for the purpose of trying to impress anyone. But don't let that fool you. I was far from a pro at getting guys. Kind of socially dim in that field actually. Sure they want you to be real. But there is so much to it than that. You'd understand this ramble a bit more after reading the book so I won't get into any further detail.

This book was a mix of getting to know the inner working of "guyness" and even a nice piece of insight into how we as women work. A book I can see guys and girls both enjoying in fact, even getting something useful from. A few good life lessons on the opposite sex wrapped up in one fun and humorous package. I was laughing out loud the whole way through and I never felt like it dragged or was rushed. I can honestly say that I have no complaints about this book, earning it a shining five stars from me!

“If he’s just not into you anymore, then buy yourself a cute pair of shoes and strut your fabulousness elsewhere.”
― Jody Gehrman, Babe in Boyland

This was such a feel-good book. So light and very funny. I giggled through out Natalie's journey. Without ruining the journey and giving away all the "secrets," I can say that it was much more enlightening then I thought it would be. You really do get the answers that you would wonder as a young girl about boys. Maybe not straight forward, but through your own "investigation" shall we say. It's funny how many things are so apparent if we would only "look" at them. I will read this book again and I will hope to enjoy the re-entry of the journey as much as the first time. I would really recommend this book, it's a delightful, lighthearted read.

I was very much looking forward to Babe in Boyland for several reasons. Number one being journalism. As the former Editor-in-Chief of my high school newspaper, I am total newspaper geek. Seriously. How could I not be? And high school newspapers are almost never featured in YA books. Why is that? Anyway, the second reason - girl undercover at a boy's boarding school. Hello, awesome. Undercover, boys, and boarding school. Three of my favourite things. Let me just say - Jody Gehrman did not let me down. I loved this book!

It was nice to finally see a self-confident main character. So many girls have awkward, clumsy, self-conscious protagonists, and while that description totally defines me, it's nice to read about a girl who doesn't look in the mirror and want to shudder. I loved her friends, Chloe and Darby, and I loved Natalie's observations about them and the way they behaved in front of boys. In fact, all of Natalie's observations throughout the book really struck me. It's strange to consider things from a boy's point of view.

There were a lot of elements in Babe in Boyland that reminded me of other things - She's the Man, Never Been Kissed, The Lioness Quartet, etc. It really was an awesome combination of interesting ideas and I feel like the author put it together in a great way with a lot of depth.

Overall, I definitely recommend this book. I had a lot of fun reading Babe in Boyland and I thought it about it even after finishing. In fact, I read the book originally on my kindle, but I liked it so much I needed to buy a copy of the hardcover. So yes - check it out.

Oh my gosh, what a joy this was to read! Jody Gehrman is now on my "Authors to Watch" list and as soon as I'm done typing, I'm going to cyber stalk her to see what she's writing next! Okay, maybe "Stalking" is a little strong, but you get my point.

So the premise noted for the book does a pretty good job of summing up the plot. Actually, when I popped open the book I was half expecting to read something similar to that cheesy 80's flick Just One of The Guys (for those of you who haven't seen it, you're not missing much). Thankfully, this novel never degenerating into that madcap, hokey, over the top kind of cliched story. In fact, it was charming and hysterical and, at times, very poignant.

Nat/Natalie was a wonderful character, as were her BFF's Chloe and Darcy, and her love interest Emilio. Each individual character had a distinct voice that was all their own and even the peripheral characters were endearing and charming. I could not recommend this book more. My only caveat is, there is occasional strong language. While this doesn't bother me, it may not be appropriate for the under 16 ilk.
