Feb 11, Susan rated it liked it Shelves: I found her character and the struggles she encountered especially with boys and with her older sister easy to relate to. This is exactly the kind of light-hearted, fun read that just makes you feel good about your day, about people, and about being alive.

For one, Luisa Perez is of mixed descent and raised by her s This book turned out to be a lot different than I expected. BOY was definitely an enjoyable read that will appeal to high school girls looking for a hearty dose of rapid-fire battle-of-the-sexes dialogue and a solid romance. Just who does this guy think he is, encouraging his peers to act like Neanderthals with their girlfriends? She has a solid core and a surprisingly strong character for a story like this.

Girl v. Boy by Yvonne Collins

Their school was competing in a school literacy contest. Since the competion is boy versus girls, she will be sharing the column with an anonymous male writer who’s opinions differ greatly for her own.

To add to the drama, Luisa is recruited by her English teacher, to write a weekly column about a district wide literary fundraiser, that pits the boys verses the girls. The boy was so mad that the girl was also in it too so they said that however wins will have to do something to the loser and the loser will have to do it no madder what.


In high school, I was just one of those regular people, who was a part of the batch, but never really stood out. Jul 27, Naomi rated it it was ok.

This book is merely about romance and repetitive ones at that. But within their school, the girls and boys are competing to see which gender can raise the most money for their school and the gender that wins also gets a few extra days off. It’s not easy and while it becomes clear towards the end who is NOT the columnist, I didn’t expect the big reveal.

Also, fight for what you believe in and always believe in yourself. Her first assignment is to cover her high school’s latest fundraiser, which pits the girls against the boys.

At least that’s what Lu Annd has told herself. The one thing that irked me about Luisa though was how high-and-mighty she could get about things sometimes. Okay, I guess they could’ve used a simple Ticonderoga pencil for her After we get past Luisa being such a ditz however the book is actually a fun read.
