Synopsis

How to Keep a Boy as a Pet by Diane Messidoro

Can taming a GORGEOUS BOY really be as easy as WALKING A DOG? Find out in this hilarious and sassy book for teenage girls. 'I refuse to spend my entire life swooning pointlessly.' Circe Shaw is on a mission. 'I must transform into a fabulously sophisticated journalist and discover the amazing scientific truth about boys.' But life is beyond complicated. Circe has to deal with a poisonous rival, her mum's annoying 'just friends' men and her own Dark Past. Can Circe's daring investigation really teach her the facts of love? Will it help her finally get a boyfriend? Or will it break her heart ...? Diane Messidoro's brilliant novel is one of those books for teens that will make you laugh, cry, cringe, swoon - and learn to be an irresistible boy magnet (that last bit isn't guaranteed).

About the Author

Diane Messidoro spent her teens shimmying at discos, falling off horses and swooning over unsuitable boys. While she loved the dancing, and even the riding, she found the rules of attraction totally confusing. So, as soon as she left school, Diane started to study - boys! She worked tirelessly, chasing posh Harrys round Chelsea and edgy Zeds round Soho, chatting up moody artists and brawny builders, dating heartless lotharios and hopeless romantics. She hung out with racing drivers and politicians, explorers and musicians. She even met The Strongest Man In The World! She did everything wrong (at least twice) and had her heart broken over and over again. But, gradually, she began to understand the strange behaviour of the male human species - and that, really, it's all pretty simple... How to Keep a Boy as a Pet is the result. When she's not making up stories, Diane works as an advertising copywriter, telling the truth at all times. She lives in London with two disobedient pet cats and an occasionally obedient pet husband.
