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 even 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...

Megan Meade's Guide to the McGowan Boys

Observation #1: Being an army brat sucks. Except that this is definitely a better alternative to moving to Korea.

Observation #2: Forget evil, laughing, little monsters. These guys have been touched by the Abercrombie gods. They are a blur of toned, suntanned perfection.

Observation #3: I need a lock on my door. STAT.

Observation #4: Three words: six-pack abs.

Observation #5: Do not even get me started on the state of the bathroom. I'm thinking of calling in a hazmat team. Seriously.

Observation #6: These boys know how to make enemies. Big time.

Megan Meade will have to juggle a new school, a new family, a new crush -- on the boy next door, as in next bedroom door -- and a new life. Will she survive the McGowan boys?

Three words: Cute, fun and fluffy. This book will definitely have you laughing within seconds at the annoying-ness of a house of boys and how they will do anything to get on your nerves. The cover truly captures the storyline of this book as she is definitely the odd one out.

When Megan refuses to travel to a new country with her parents because she wants to continue playing football (aka. soccer) her only option is to stay with long time family friends the McGowan family. Who have a family of all boys. But with that her only option, Megan moves in with them to only find out that it will be worse than she expected. However, things soon become complicated when she develops a crush on one of the oldest brothers. Will she survive?

Observation #1: Megan is a quiet but fun girl who really brings a funny side to this story.

Observation #2: All of the family, including Megan, are hilarious. The way they joke around and play pranks and just some of the things that pop out their mouths will have you soon in fits of laughter.

Observation #3: All the McGowan boys had their own distinct personalities, their were heartwarming scenes where secrets came out amongst them with some brotherly banter that make you laugh-out-loud.

Observation #4: Megan was a refreshing character into the family of the McGowans; as the only girl she exclaimed some hilarious observations and I loved reading her emails to her best friend. She also stood up for herself, furthermore some of the brothers.

Observation #5: The romance aspect to this story was adorable!

Observation #6: Fun and continuous, this story is an engaging and light read.

This novel was a lovely, light and fluffy read that is perfect for a summer afternoon in the sun or a cozy winter read.
