Look out! Mikey Elsinger's in love!
Mikey never does anything halfway, so it's no surprise that when she develops a not-so-secret crush on Shawn Macavity, the heartstoppingly gorgeous star of the school play, she goes a bit overboard. Soon Mikey -- Mikey? -- has a stylish new wardrobe, and she's baking Shawn cookies, writing their initials on blackboards, even buying him

Emani Gray
Voigt’s purpose of writing this book, Bad Girls in Love, is to let her audience know that teenagers actually go through high school experiences that we see in present day. Bad Girls in Love is a book that will help you learn about the things you go through in middle school and in high school. There really isn’t a great impact the book has on the audience but for some it may help them a lot. The values of this book won’t be lasting but it is still a great book to read. Bad Girls in Love isn’t rea ...more

Ugh. I don't think anything of interest actually happened in this book. It was all middle school drama, which isn't really drama, just little things made out to be big. I wouldn't have finished this book if it wasn't for a reading challenge.

One uplifting thing is that if this book can be published, then I've definitely got a decent shot at writing a publishable YA novel.

I really didn't like it. I got lost on some parts and didn't get some of it. Sometimes you couldn't tell who was talking and the jokes were really corny. This isn't the kind of book I expected it to be.
Clanesha Munford
This book was terrible and boring! The author needs to do better. I rate it an D-.
Laura
I read this simply because a student said it contained cuss words. (I did not find any in the book.) Overall, it was a basic middle school story--full of teen drama and angst.

i know, i should have realised from the title that this wouldn't be very good, but it's cynthia voigt! she wrote the wonderful tillerman books! i didn't really think she would have stooped so low as to write anything so mainstream and mediocre, but i was sadly disappointed. it wasn't terrible or anything and it wasn't entirely formulaic, but the characters were just so much less well developed and individual than those in her other books. still, it was kind of enjoyable and a quick read. besides ...more

Pretty funny!

One of my students thought this book was inappropriate for our elementary school so I read it to decide and thought it wasn't bad but wasn't worth keeping! Mikey has a crush on the star of the school play and sets out to win him while Margalo tries to slow her down, but it doesn't work. There is some talk of girls being pressured for sex, so I just decided not to worry about it and give it to the middle school.

I vaguely remember reading this book, but I need to re-read it because I don't remember much of anything. I do know that there is a series of this book including: Bad Girls; Bad, Badder, Baddest; It's Not Easy Being Bad; and Bad Girls in Love.

I read Bad Girls in Love first, and I think I need to go back and read the other ones first.
Andrea
Bad Girls in Love is a hilarious book. I loved each character although at some points I wanted to punch some of them. The ending gives a nice closure which I love in books and that satisfied me. It also seemed like something that could happen to any one in middle school which made me like it even more.
Ahna
I didn't really like this book i just thought it was kinda boring.
Kyla
Argh, I love Cynthia Voigt's Homecoming series beyond reason, utterly and completely. So I've tried to like or even get through a single Bad Girls book and have failed again with this one - something so flat and unappealing to me about this series. No Dicey, that's for sure.
Danielle
Mikey and Margalo are in eighth grade now, and both experience their first crushes. I like the candid way they speak to each other. Their friendship feels realistic, even if the plot is nothing very memorable.

56/60 tbr box.

This is the same book as "From Bad To Worse" just published under a different title. I enjoy the different way the two main female characters approach life.

Marglo and Mikey are more than relateable. The book is book is perfect to the t when it comes to describing highschool exspeireinces
Kori Smith
It was confusing. The author left out a bunch of details that you needed to know in order to understand some things.
