Megan Meade's Guide to the McGowan Boys is about army brat Megan who is sick and tired of moving around all the time for her parents. When they tell her again after she finally gets settled somewhere that they're moving to South Korea -- she puts up a fight for the first time in her life. To keep her in the states, they send her off to her dad's friend's house to live with the McGowan's -- and their seven sons. She doesn't know what she's getting herself into...
I thought it was a good book! I liked Megan; she's fiery and she tries so hard with such a big heart. I really liked her character except for some aspects in the book where it made her seem a little overly girly for such a tom boy in the way that she acted about boys at first. The writing style was I think a bit young for me. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I was a bit younger, but I liked it anyway. It was a really cute story and such a light fun read.
I read this within a couple of hours and I liked the break it gave me from heavy serious books that I had been reading. It was something stupid and teenager-y that I really enjoy sometimes. It wasn't plagued with major drama, because sometimes high school and being a teenager is just enough. I recommend it as a light read -- maybe better fit for a summer read. But it's definitely geared toward some of the younger readers in the way that it's written even if it's not supposed to be -- that's what I got out of it.
