For anyone who's ever felt that boys were a different species....

Wildly creative seventh grader Kara McAllister just had her best idea yet. She's going to take notes on all of the boys in her grade (and a few elsewhere) in order to answer a seemingly simple question: How can she get a boyfriend?

But Kara's project turns out to be a lot more complicated than she imagined. Soon there are secrets, lies, and an embarrassing incident in the boy's bathroom. Plus, Kara has to deal with mean girls, her slightly spacey BFF, and some surprising uses for duct tape. Still, if Kara's research leads her to the right boy, everything may just be worth it. . . .

Full of charts and graphs, heart and humor, this hilarious debut will resonate with tweens everywhere.

Kara McAllister is in DESPERATE need of a boyfriend. Why? Well, who wants to live as a "lifelong boyfriendless social outcast, destined to die alone??" Kara is determined not to be that girl.

So Kara begins a scientific experiment to answer the question... "How do I find a boyfriend?" What seems like an easy task, turns into a journey of declining popularity, battling mean girls, BFF confusion, secrets, and most importantly... a lot of observations about boys!

Will Kara's story end in success?

I really enjoyed this book. It was funny, entertaining, and impossible to put down. Kara shares her journey through charts, graphs and scientific notes and observations that make this book unique and fun. The Boy Project is a great, light read; perfect for a weekend!

I highly recommend it to all girls age 10 and up; especially girls in middle school.
