The Lovereading4Kids comment

Thirteen-year-old Gwynnie has always thought boys stupid...After all they mostly seem to be messing about or showing off. But Gwynnie seems to be changing. Could it be because Charlie Nott, the hottest thing to hit year 10, has turned up in the school? Suddenly Gwynnie has a lot to learn about boys and has to decide to give up being a non-girlie girl. Hilariously and charmingly, Gwynnie tells her own journey of discovery.

Synopsis

Boys for Beginners by Lil Chase

Is it worth giving up being a tomboy for your first crush? A sparky, funny and warm story about friendship, family and growing up.

'I'm just saying that if you ever want, like, a boyfriend or anything - not that I think you should get one right now - but if you did want a boyfriend ever, you might have to start being a bit more like a girl than a boy.'

Thirteen-year-old Gwynnie is just about to turn fourteen. While other girls in her year are all about boys and make-up, the closest she's got to a boy is in a tackle on the football field. But when the totally hot Charlie Notts starts at school, Gwynnie decides now might be the time to start being a girl. Gwynnie enlists the help of a gang of girls at school, headed by the super-confident Jenny. But is it really safe for Gwynnie to be let loose with lash curlers and strong eye-shadow? Has Jenny got a hidden agenda while giving Gwynnie her make-over? And will Charlie ever see her as more than a killer football player with skinny legs? When everything comes to a head at the school prom, Gwynnie will learn some truths about herself and her new found girly friends. Has she risked the firm friendships she has with boys for that first kiss?
