The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is a brilliantly observed wake-up call for teenagers about life and love and the pitfalls of choosing the bad boy as your man. A story of self-discovery, broken hearts but more than anything any girl who reads this book will come out inspired not to make the same mistakes. The story revolves around three very different sort of girls; one super-confident, another who’s called a slut but doesn’t care and the third who’s popular but not very smart, and how they interconnect and befriend each other all because of having the misfortune to meet the same bad boy.


A Bad Boy Can Be Good For A Girl by Tanya Lee Stone

Josie, Nicolette and Aviva are three very different girls who all meet the same bad boy with an irresistible knack for getting into their blood and under their skin. Each is sure that she can keep a cool head about him, but how much are they really in control?


Tanya Lee Stone's writing is poetic, funny, and amazingly true. Bad Boy will be dog-eared and stuffed in pockets and read long after bedtime - E Lockheart, author of The Boyfriend List. Every high-school-age girl in the world needs to read this book - Teen Reads Too This should be on every girl's reading list for life - Booksnog Like a poetry collection with a plot...exotically effective - Financial Times
