Carmen Does S.E. Hinton was a tomboy in her younger age, and she found it easier to work with narrating as a guy instead of a girl.
Jacqueline Nisbet there are many books out there where it is just girls.. don't get too hung up on it.. boys need books too that interest them,, where the characters are not just girls..
Sarah Ryan Many of Hinton's stories have male protagonists, which is most likely because, as she has mentioned, she spent most of her time with guys when she was growing up.
