Overview

Rule #2: Develop your Boy Right wish list.
Rule #8: You don't need to be needy.
Rule #11: Become his friend.

Before I ever had a boyfriend, I thought having one would be easy. Well, girls, was I ever wrong!

I mean, sometimes the boy you like doesn't even know you like him. What do you do then? And if you do meet him, how do you know what to talk about?

So I thought a lot about what happened between me and Wesley (my first boyfriend), and then I asked my friends, my sister, and even my mother(!) about what to do when you have boyfriend problems. After I got the answers to my questions, I wrote them all down to help girls everywhere.

So if you're interested in learning how to choose a boyfriend for yourself, just open this book and take a read. Going out with a guy can be a lot of fun, but it can also be kinda scary. Who knew having a boyfriend could be so complicated?!

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-7Body Electric provides advice to girls on surviving puberty with both optimism and sanity intact. Camys cool rules range from where to go with questions, to discussing the impact of mirrors on a girls psyche, to a surprisingly informative interview with a modeling agency. The importance of physical beauty is downplayed in favor of finding ones inner beauty. With its focus on having a good self-image and positive ways of dealing with hormones, this book makes an excellent supplement to works that deal more with the physical side of puberty. It Must Be Love combines a narrative about Camys sudden interest in boys and her first romance with tips on how to deal with boyfriends (dont be a needy girlfriend, like a guy before you go out with him, etc.). Camys first experience with dating is typical of sixth-grade relationships: lots of angst and worry and excited squealing with her friends. The fact that things dont work out between Camy and her chosen Boy Right makes this book more realistic than mainstream romance novels. Although the author tries hard to mirror a sixth-grade point of view, the voice of an adult with an adults knowledge often leaks through. Still, the tone is not condescending or know-it-all, and does not diminish the value of the unique approach these titles take on old subjects.Linda Bindner, formerly at Athens Clarke County Library, GA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
