Review: So, this is a personal thing, but I actually rated this one down because of the language in it. That's totally me and my opinion, obviously. This book was well written and pretty cute. It was a quick read, only took me about two days, and a hilarious look at boyfriends and high school. The voice is fun and I liked the friendships and relationships. Just a couple of what I'

Worth Reading...

I heard just your average celebrity and loved it. This story also was a fun story to read, the author did a bit of a different type of story in this,the characters where a little more serious in this. I think the author has a lot of fun with her stories.

This was pretty good. Witty and funny.. a perfect combo for me. Although there were some cliché moment, I'd definitely recommend it

a quick, easy read. it was cute.
She should have just said pink wasn't her color... For someone so smart, I must say, the main character, Brooke, was rather clueless. All in all, it's a pretty good story with an almost comical ending. Go band nerds!

A fun read for fans of YA chick lit

When seventeen-year-old Brooke Thomas is invited by Cassie Deegan, the most popular girl in school, to join a secret club, Brooke eagerly anticipates that membership will greatly improve her lowly social status. But at the initiation meeting, she learns that the group is called the Boy Swap Club, and the only reason Brooke has been invited to join is because she has "a desirable boyfriend," a fellow band geek Brook has been dating for four months.

It's official. I'm a Kristina Springer fangirl. THE BOY SWAP delivered in the same way THE PAPARAZZI PROJECT did, only with a little more meat this time around. Both of these stories revolve around a message that is subtly delivered throughout the novel. They're important messages that girls specifically would benefit from learning early in their life and because of that fact, I think this book would be a great one to share with younger readers of the YA genr

Kristina Springer is one of those writers that you know when you pick up one of their books you are going to be transported back in time to when life was maybe simpler but maybe more complicated as well. What in the world am I talking about?

Why, high school of course!

I know when I pick up one of her books, I am going to get a really fun and light read that will make me smile and make me remember all those crazy (and fun!) times in high school. When social standing was eve

Let me start with the positives. This is a quick read and has a nice smooth pace throughout. It never dragged for me. There are no confusing scenes or stilted dialogue. I also really liked the hero in the story, although I didn't care for how he handled a particular situation.

Negatives for me~ I didn't care for the main character of the story, and I didn't like that she never learned a lesson herself. She was very vindictive and wanted to place blame on everyone else. What about all

I read this expecting a bit of a disaster that I might not actually finish, but was pleasantly surprised. The main character seems like the typical popularity seeking doormat at first, but then she starts to shake it off, along with some of her own self-limitations. I enjoyed the evolution of the characters and their relationships with eachother. The tech might seem slightly outdated, but books take time to write and publish, while tech related methods of communication evolve at lightning speeds ...more

Kristina Springer has done it again in “Boy Swap”! This book does a great job describing what high school is like, especially for girls. It centers on the age old issue of the “popular” versus the “not so popular” girls. It is interesting to learn how each group thinks the grass is always greener on the other side. And, to learn what a person will and will not do to become “popular”.

This is a book about high school friendship, loss of friendship, new friendship, old friendships and about learni

I really enjoyed this book up until the end. It was slow in some parts, but I read through it to get to the good parts. I liked the characters and the back story was very interesting. What I didn't like was the all the sudden I love you's. It was cute and then it got rude. I really didn't like how it from I love you to happily ever after. I needed some sort of bridge to get there!! If the end of the story was as developed as the rest of the story, this might have been a 4 1/2 star

At first I thought this was a silly idea for a book. Who joins a boyfriend swapping club? And for a scarf? Okay, that's a bit unfair, Brooke joins the club to boost her popularity, but it's still a silly reason to join a club that could risk your supposedly serious relationship. Anyway, I grew to like Brooke and her silliness in the end, and I even found myself hoping she'd out smart Cassie so I guess I enjoyed this in the end. Recommended for a very, very light read, if you're into YA contempor ...more

Who would ever want their guy to date another girl? Obviously, most of the girls at this school. It took me a while to follow Kristina Springer's Boy Swap, because many of the characters weren't developing quickly enough to catch my attention. The story was dragging on without much of a plot. It turned out to be a pretty decent book; however, it is probably not one I would recommend.

I am so, SO glad I decided to finish this book. It seemed kind of painful at first, because the whole idea of a Boy Swap Club is just too awful. However, Brooke starts to really show her strong character and stands up for what he believes in. It's the perfect chick lit book. It has a unique concept, and makes you feel so good after you read it.

Join the highly secretive and exclusive Boy Swap Club where the girls get to swap boyfriends (without the boys' knowledge) without consequence. What could possibly go wrong? It was quite ridiculous but fun.

Awwww, this was such a fun and fluffy sweet read! And it’s a quick read, too! I started reading it last night and finished it early this afternoon. I’ve read The Paparazzi Project by this same author and enjoyed it so much, I had no qualms picking up Boy Swap. It was definitely worth it!

Reading Boy swap was like finding a water while your in middle of Sahara well while dying of thirst. It is funny ,entertaining, witty and it is an adventure to read. In short words it is bloody awesome book for anyone who loves reading.

I didn't think I'd like this high school drama much when I started it, but it turned out to be OK. It was kind of cute, kind of funny, with an unrealistic HEA ending. Fairly tame - probably suitable for younger YAs.

DNF - as per normal rules, 1 star for any book that fails to engage me to the end.

I'm amazed how many positive reviews it has and almost no negatives. I understand tastes vary, but still... Clearly has charms I cannot find.
