Cocoa grads are the students who drop out to work at the local chocolate factory, and Luisa’s sort-of brother in law is one of them. I spent the entire time wanting to find out who Luisa ends up with and who Scoop isbut the build up to it, was also really enjoyable.

It was woven together quite neatly. Discover Prime Book Box for Kids. Don’t always expect things. Of course this Book Stress is awesome to endure Trying to figure out who the male columnist will keep you constantly turning the pages until the big finale where you see which gender wins the battle.

Girls become more vocal about what they want and guys have even more questions about what girls want. When I saw it on Paperback swap, I knew it was going to gorl one of the first books I ordered.

Girl v. Boy by Yvonne Collins

The story rotates between Lu’s friends, her work, home and school life and her quickly amassing near FBs. Her sister Grace is harsh at least she was before the baby now she’s mellowing there is the whole separate storyline between her and Paz her dropout boyfriend father of her child but she seems to still have it out for Lu or is it she’s looking out for her.


I also love romance books, and when reading this book, I noticed that the main character, Luisa is trying to understand guys and what goes on in their heads and of course she could never understand the male gender, unless she is part of a relationship. Izzy and Rachel are Lu’s best friends. I’d definitely recommend reading it! It just shows how teenage girls lack so much knowledge about boys and rideoout versa.

That’s probably when I lost interest to fully read this book. She has two best friends, and that’s it. She has a solid core and a surprisingly strong character for a story like this.


She talks to any male and she just leads into a “relationship” with them. To make matters even more complicated, Lu is convinced that every boy that shows an interest in her is the guys’ anonymous author.

Luisa is tapped to be an anonymous columnist, called Newshound, with a male counterpart called Scoop with whom she gets into a vicious battle of the sexes.


It just doesn’t work like that. The premise is cute three girls trying to get by in a big Chicago school. A lot of my assumptions stem from the yvonne, which somehow made me believe that the heroine was studious, privileged girl, and is pitted against a hunky rieout boy The two collinw soon find themselves engaged in an epic battle of the sexes—a battle that Luisa is determined to win.

Excited to test her writing skills, Aandy accepts, and her life changes in ways she would never have been able to predict.

To add to the drama, Luisa is recruited by her English teacher, to write a weekly column about a district wide literary fundraiser, that pits the boys verses the girls. Her immediate family – mom, sister, niece, and brother-in-law – are well developed as well.

I did enjoy the back-and-forth between Scoop and Newshound.

When Luisa meets this boy and she found out that he was in this ceremony too. A simple and light read. Does that make me a traitor to my sex?
