    Who Needs Boys?

    At first, the chance to spend the summer working on a farm holds no appeal to Ally; after all, she is going to go see her dad in LA, finally, and she is so not into dirt, even though there might be the chance to see boys. For a girl in an all female school, that's a big deal. Then, her plans crash and burn, so Ally is forced to either face a summer all alone while her friends work on the farm with boys or finagle herself a job with them, despite all the slots being filled. Her finagling is successful, therefore, Ally soon finds herself teamed up with the best worker on the farm, who happens to be the younger brother to both her teacher and the hottest of the guys there and has a real attitude problem in regards to her. Tad seems to consider her fluff, and a waste of his time. Well, that's okay, his very fine brother likes her, even inviting her on a family camping trip with him. Despite not being an outdoors person, Ally accepts. Then, a chance comment or two, a bet, and a bit of kindness change everything. .............................. **** Like Ally, the book itself is more than it seems. Her lostness and neediness will speak to the young readers who are in a broken home, and her triumph will give them hope. With the feeling of an old fashioned romance from years ago, Ally and Tad's story is heartwarming on multiple levels. ****

    So Great!!!!

    This book was really good. It was so good I couldn't stop reading it. I read it in 3 hours. I just wish it was a little longer because I didn't want it to end! You should defiantly get this book if you want a great girly book to read.

    It was an awsome book, but really short. I like books that are long and detailed

    Really Good Book!!

    This book is really good. I would recommend this book to anyone. It is easy to read and will make you continue to read it up until the last page of the book. It keeps you guessing what is going to happen. Buy this book! You'll love it!

    Second best in series!

    Who Needs Boys? is my second favorite behind Putting Boys on the Ledge, but that doesn't mean this book is awful. It's funny and romantic, though at times I wish I could slap Allie. Besides feelings sometimess like shaking her, this book was awesome.
