Hi! I'm Reba and I'm lucky enough to be a Young Adult Librarian in the Boston, MA area. I enjoy reading all kinds of books, but I have a special love for Young Adult literature. I'm more than happy to recommend books, and I love having them recommended to me! If you have a favorite book or a comment on something that I've written, post your comment or question and I'll do my best to respond to it.
I'm super excited to have a blog where you can read my opinions and recommendations for books. Tell me what you think! You can leave comments here, or email me at email@example.com. Either way, I'll respond back to you soon!

Loved the title, liked the cover...did not love the book. It was OK. That's the perfect description of this book. Just OK. It was an easy, quick read; perfect for the beach or pool. The title character, Megan Meade is likeable enough, but the whole plot device to get her living with the McGowan boys in question was weak. She's an Army Brat who is sick and tired of moving. So, when her mom & dad get deployed to South Korea, she puts her foot down. Her whole reason for not wanting to move to South Korea was that she didn't want to leave her friends, school and sports behind. Yet, she ends up moving to another state anyway, to live with her dad's friends and their seven boys. Um, hello? How is that not leaving your friends, school & sports and life behind? But whatever. I was willing to suspend disbelief and just enjoy the book. And that's kind of what you have to do to enjoy this book. Just accept it for what it is, and don't look for deeper meaning.
