If you are looking for a super fast yet super cute book to read, then Girl v. Boy is for you. I absolutely adored the take on this Battle of the Sexes story. Up until her sophomore year, Luisa Perez has always been "just another girl." In fact, she is one of the nine Luisa Perez's in her school; un-unique to say the least. This year however, Luisa just knows something has got to change. When a teacher asks her to write an anonymous column under the penname Newshound, she knows that it is her one chance to really stand out. At first it starts out as a little banter between Newshound and another anonymous columnist named Scoop. But what starts off as friendly, turns into an all-out war. Before she even knows what's happened, Luisa's column is being printed in other schools all around her area! Just as her writing is starting to heat up, so is her previously non-existent love life. At first Luisa just seems to be going through guy after guy until she gives Joey Carella a shot. There is just something different about this guy that makes Luisa decide to keep him around. However, Luisa is getting closer to the reveal of her secret identity and she is worried about what Joey will think. What she doesn't know is that Joey is keeping a secret too. *Cue dramatic music*. This is a super sweet novel that puts a unique twist on Battle of the Sexes. I loved the relationship between Luisa and Joey as well as the relationship that we see between Newshound and Scoop (we get to see their hilarious news articles in the story!). I recommend this book to all!
