In Massachusetts, fourteen years old Allie Morrison looks forward to spending the summer with her father in Los Angeles. Since her parents divorced, she rarely sees him. For that matter she never sees her mother either though she lives with her. Mom is too busy at work or on dates so Allie lives on frozen pizza. While she is in California, her best friends, Blue, Natalie, and Frances all have jobs at Sam¿s Farm Stand, run and owned by Latin schoolteacher Sam Novak.................. The day before she is to fly to the West Coast, her father cancels the trip claiming his pregnant wife is ailing. A despondent Allie has no mom around to empathize with her. Allie manages to get work at Sam¿s Farm Stand. Sam assigns her to work with his younger brother Tad who is Allie¿s age. He is nasty to her besides being too young; his eighteen years old brother Rand is much nicer towards her and the right age. As Allie adjusts to field work from being a teen Fashionista, her three friends bet stuffed bras as to whether she becomes the girlfriend of the younger brother....................... WHO NEEDS BOYS? is a fabulous young teen angst tale starring a terrific lock key protagonist. The story line focuses on Allie, inadvertently abandoned by her parents, but the consequences of feeling discarded are powerful and deftly described in her philosophy of life: be dumped or do the dumping rather quickly. Though a confrontation with mom deals to easily with the estrangement, young adults will appreciate Stephie Davis¿ fine tale that requires Natalie the runner needing a boyfriend, preferably a non-athletic nerd...........................

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. ****

If your looking for a light read to make your heart flutter and your smile widen- look no further. This book's got attitude and charm you can't forget. it puts a teen girl's bitter issues and sorts them out in a sugar-sweet understanding package you won't want to let go of.

I hated this book. The book should be shot! It was dull and boring. The main character was a major brat! It was dull and dragged on. The camping scence was half of the book! That just makes no scence to me. DON'T READ THIS BOOK.

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

I hated it! I love reading, and girly books. It was dull and boring. It was really slow moving. I just didn't enjoy it. The book just needed more magic. The first 100 pages just drag on.

I think that it is a awesome book. I'm just now putting my opinion on here and I read it about a year ago! I loved this book so much, I read it about 7 times! I love to read, and this book is so good. It's about this girl that thinks every guy on the planet worships her. She meets Tad, the not so nice guy, and her friends make a bet on if she can get him or not.I can't tell you how it ends, but her irresponsible mother finally finds out that she needs to get back in Ally's life. Ally realizes that it's not always the A+ guys that are nice. She realizes that some A+ guys are jerks, like Tad's brother, Rand. She realizes that you don't have to be A+ to be cool. That's just me...I'm a romantic teen novel reader. I even try writing my own! They are so good! I beg yall to read this book! thx!
