Read in September, 2010

However strange/creepy the actual storyline is: a girl turns into a fly overnight and finds herself in the boys locker room at school where she lingers for a week eating garbage and sussing out the boys and then, before her mom gets home from an extended vacation, she magically finds herself back in her bed as a human, none the worse for wear and alot more boy savvy, I liked the book. I liked it because the writing seemed genuine and because the fourteen year old girl in me could totally relate to Gretchen (the girl/fly). Her thoughts and emotions when watching the boys change for P.E. seemed very real...she called them "gherkins" for goodness sake. Ha. This was EXACTLY the kind of book I was dying to get my hands on when I was that age and totally naive and inexperienced. Okay, I was that way for much longer than fourteen, but you understand what I mean.
