I read this book on August 20th 2012.

A comedic book about a girl literally turning into one of the boys.
I enjoyed reading this over the summer but it sometimes got boring. I loved it but didn't like that she cut off all her hair for that tiny project! I had such high potential for this book but when I read it it was completely different from what I expected. I wanted it to be like "She's The Man!" but it was completely different. 
I recommend this book for people who liked the movie "She's The Man" because it has the same idea.
