Welcome everyone :) Things may be a little slow at the moment as I am in my last few months of school so I am swamped with work and exams but if you had time to leave a comment it would make my day!

When high school junior Natalie--or Dr. Aphrodite, as she calls herself when writing the relationship column for her school paper--is accused of knowing nothing about guys and giving girls bad relationship advice, she decides to investigate what guys really think and want.

But the guys in her class won't give her straight or serious answers. The only solution? Disguising herself as a guy and spending a week at Underwood Academy, the private all-boy boarding school in town. There she learns a lot about guys and girls in ways she never expected--especially when she falls for her dreamy roommate, Emilio. How can she show him she likes him without blowing her cover?

This was a really cute read. It was light hearted, hilarious with lots of romance. What's not to love? If you have seen She's The Man and enjoyed you will love this!

The beginning was a little slow but as soon as Natalie was in the boys school it all kicked off for me. It was full of pranks and uncover missions and just lots and lots of laughs.

I liked Natalie. She was really dedicated, though a little crazy. She just made me laugh. My favourite bits were when her girly tendencies came out when she was Nat. Hilarious. 

Emilio. So hot. I wish he was my room mate. He was not only sexy as hell but he was a genuinely nice guy and you got to learn a lot about him because Nat was a guy when he confided in him. 

The writing was really funny but it was occasionally juvenile at times. Jody definitely got a perfect voice for a teenage girl though.

The ending was sweet and predictable which, from a romance, is always nice. I did like how there were hardships along the way and lots of lessons learnt.

This is a great read if you like romance and comedy. A very quick and sweet read.


  1. Aw, yes, I loved this book too. I agree, I think my favorite parts were when her girlish tendencies came out. And the scene in gym with the basketball. Oh my gosh, I was laughing for pages after that scene!

  2. This was a really sweet and funny read! I'm just a sucker for such storylines (:
