The book was entertaining. It wasn't very deep about her problems and the girl was often very predictable and the plot was also very predictable. I wasn't rooting for the guy that she ended up with, but it was a good read. It won't be very good for someone who wants the protagonist to explore her problems with her family and her future since the book does very little of it - if not at all. The book mainly focuses on her trying to decide on a guy and her trying to figure who's the male columnist. I wouldn't really recommend it if you're looking for a deeply emotional book, but if you still want to read then don't buy it just check out a public library. If you're just looking for a quick read then I recommend this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

At her Chicago high school, Luisa Perez is nothing special. But Luisa is content with her life, working part-time in a diner and hanging out with her two best friends, forever looking out for her Future Boyfriend. When she gets offered an anonymous gig as a newspaper columnist covering the city-wide fundraising competition promoting literacy, she is surprised but she accepts. Luisa isn't the only one writing the column however. 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. This book covers a very hectic semester as Luisa deals with her floundering love life, antagonistic Queen Bees, and sparring with her male counterpart, Scoop, in a battle of the sexes.Was this review helpful?

This book was cute. Not overly fluffy- there were mentions of sex and whatnot- but it was definitely a light-hearted read. While the ending was pretty predictable, there were unexpected moments on the way there. Luisa was a likable enough character. Smart enough to be believable columnist, but very very confused over boys. I'm sure some readers will absolutely adore her column.....even though I found Scoop's a tad bit better. Does that make me a traitor to my sex? Not really. Anyway, I really liked this book had a predomintanly Hispanic cast, but didn't try too hard to seem hispanic. Usually I get blinded with Spanish sayings I don't understand.
It's a cute book. I'm sure some readers will eat it up. There were some funny moments, there were some witty moments. For me, though, it was just all right. I recommend it as a light library read.
Oh. And sucky cover, BTW.
