Title: The Adventures of the Boy-Crazy-Boy-Lovers
Genre: MG reluctant reader
The Boy-Crazy-Boy-Lovers are not boy crazy. They are not boy lovers. They are the greatest thing to happen to women since the death of the maxi pad belt. Winnie, Lulu and Beta are budding feminists and kindred souls known to the world as the Boy-Crazy-Boy-Lovers. Their wild causes on behalf of womankind have inspired (and/or greatly annoyed) Isaac Newton Middle School for years.
On the eve of their 8-year friendship anniversary, the Boy-Crazy-Boy-Lovers’ world is suddenly upset by the addition of a boy in their lives. A Boy-Crazy-Boy-Lover and a boy? What will happen to life at Isaac Newton Middle? Jillian, Lulu and Beta have to decide how to reconcile their feminist ways with this newfound maybe-love.
When I tried to tell my mother that my friends and I were celebrating our 8-year friendship anniversary with a school-wide bash to top all bashes and possibly inviting Tina Turner she just said, “That sounds great, Winnie, now eat your healthies.”
