The Lovereading4Kids comment

A fabulous and fun novel. Ever felt like wanting to be a ‘fly on the wall’ in order to glean information? Well art school student Gretchen Yee feels ordinary unlike everyone around her, so much so that despite a crush on someone she won’t do anything about it. Until that is, she becomes that ‘fly on the wall’, her confidence grows and she gets her man, or does she? If you’ve enjoyed Louise Rennison’s bubbly character Georgia Nicholson or Helen Fielding’s Bridget Jones, you’ll really warm to Gretchen Yee. Emily is also the author of The Boyfriend List and The Boy Book.

Synopsis

Fly On The Wall by Emily Lockhart

At the Manhattan School for Arts, where everyone is 'different' and everyone is 'special', Gretchen Yee feels ordinary. She sits alone at lunch, drawing pictures of spider-man, so she won't have to talk to anyone, has a crush on Titus but won't do anything about it and has no one to hang out with when her best (and only real) friend Katya is busy.

About the Author

Emily Lockhart

E. Lockhart has had nine official boyfriends, if you count the boy who asked her to go out with him at a seventh-grade dance and then basically never talked to her again. In a drawer somewhere, she's got a list of every boy she ever kissed. She has never been on a sports teams of any kind and got excused from gym class by going to ballet lessons. She has a tattoo, cuts her own hair, and has worn the same perfume since high school (Kiehl's Chinese Flowers). In her office are Betty and Veronica dolls, a photo of a particularly fat bulldog, an official business card from 'Sherlock Holmes, Consulting Detective' and the 1920s flapper dress she wore to the prom.
