    Nicolette Spicer, or Nick, has always been a tomboy, and wasn't ashamed of it. She was proud of the way she dressed and carried herself and she was proud at how well she did at basketball. But Nick's feelings about herself begin to change when she literally bumps into Ben, the new guy at school. Who knew he could be so cute up close? <BR/><BR/>Now Nick begins to crush on Ben, but there seems to be one little problem. It looks like Ben only goes for the types of girls who are completely into the way they look and the latest fashions. Girls like Hannah, who just so happens to also be on the basketball team -- but who is also pretty, Nick's enemy, and definitely the one Ben would go out with. Nick knows nothing about fashion and hasn't really cared about the way she looks, but she's determined to have Ben notice her girly side, and hopefully have him choose her over Hannah. <BR/><BR/>The only way Nick can accomplish this is to get a makeover, and she needs one quick so she can make her big debut as a girly girl at Hannah's party, which Ben will just so happen to be attending. But will this makeover be totally beneficial in helping Nick to get Ben? Or will it just make her feel even worse about herself? <BR/><BR/>Words just can't describe how hilarious and entertaining HOW TO BE A GIRLY GIRL IN JUST TEN DAYS was. Lisa Papademetriou shows us that sometimes being yourself is more worth it and definitely less time-consuming than a makeover. This is the perfect quick read for anyone who just wants to sit back and relax.

    a great read!

    this book has been confusing, but in a good way!
    I loved how even in the end, everything was still confusing to the main character, but she then got everything under control.

    this book was cool, romantic, funny, and full of good moments!

    Mmmm it was ok

    Well honestly this book was nothing special to me. Because not only they they confuse you sometimes for example: one day they are eating dinner then in the next sentence they are eating lunch in the cafeteria at school!! That really confused me sometimes so honestly I would give it like three star but four the max because it wasn't that good of a book. I probably will not be reading that again I don't know (maybe.) It was not that good at all.

    cute

    My 8 year old just finished reading this, loved it, and so I read it also. It was very funny in places and had a good overall message. Parents purchasing it may want to know that the whole push behind becoming a 'girly girl' was to impress a boy. For my 8 yo, I would have preferred the same story line but having the motivation to fit in with a group of girls since she is not yet into boys, thankfully! I realize that towards the top of the age range, those girls would be interested in boys so, it's not a criticism of the book, just something to be aware of. It was cute and my daughter enjoyed it.

    Masterpeice

    I absolutley loved this book because it was very well put. Everything that nikki went through was very much like what happens to most girls her age. I thought that it was very funy but very serious at the same time in this book. I also thought that the cherry on top of this masterpeice was the happy ending. Don't we just love them all?
