Once Upon a Read-a-Thon Mini Challenge (3): Favorite book read over the read a thon

Today is the official date that the Once Upon a Read-a-Thon kicks off. If you haven't already signed up and are still interested, go here. And during the Read-a-Thon there are fun Mini challenges to do that you can win books and other prizes.


Lauren at Lauren's Crammed Bookshelf is hosting this mini challenge and she has asked us to review our favorite book that we have read so far during the read-a-thon. I would have to say that Girl v. Boy by Yvonne Collins & Sandy Rideout is the best one I have read (which also happens to be the one I read today) so far throughout the read-a-thon. So here is my (short) review:


Girl v. Boy by Yvonne Collins & Sandy Rideout
Publication Date: July 8, 2008
Versions: hardcover, paperback


Girl v. Boy is told through a high schooler named Luisa. Her school is participating in a literacy event where whoever raises the most money will get an additional month off of school for break. Everyone is really excited but the competition really starts to heat up when the girls and boys go against each other to try to raise the most money. Luisa is also asked to be the anonymous columnist that writes about this big event. But before they know it, it turns out to be the battle of the sexes. I really enjoyed the tone of this book which was full out funny and very sarcastic. It overall was very refreshing and I found myself really enjoying the whole plot line and the character of Luisa in general. I definitely recommend this light read especially when it's still the summer.
