How to Be a Girly Girl in Just Ten Days (Candy Apple Series #4) by Lisa Papademetriou


A magazine-article makeover gives middle-school tomboy Nick a brand new look. But can she be a "girly-girl" and still be true to herself?

Nicolette Spicer ("Nick" to her friends) is a tomboy through and through. While her friends focus on shopping and lip gloss, Nick would rather buy new basketball shoes and practice her free throw. But everything changes when she meets a cutie named Ben and decides she has to ditch the jock look if she wants him to notice her. With the biggest party of the school year just ten days away, Nick is in a crunch. But when her best friend Lindsay suggests a magazine-article-inspired makeover, it seems like the perfect solution. But can Nick change her looks and still be herself?

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?

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.

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?

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.

I think this book is so cool cause it's about something that can happen to you. Is's about a girl who likes a boy but she's a tom-boy and he likes girly girls. So she's geting a make over and geting clothes for a party. What can go wrong?

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.
