Review: Megan Meade's Guide to the Mcgowan Boys by Kate Brian

Megan Meade's Guide To The Mcgowan Boys
Kate Brian
When she was nine, Megan Meade met a group of terrible, mean, Popsicle-goo-covered boys, the sons of her father's friend -- the McGowan boys. Now, seven years later, Megan's army doctor parents are shipping off to Korea and Megan is being sent to live with the little monsters, who are older now and quite different than she remembered them.
Living in a house with seven boys will give Megan, who has never even been kissed, the perfect opportunity to learn everything there is to know about boys. And she'll send all her notes to her best friend, Tracy, in...
Megan Meade's Guide to the McGowan Boys
Observation #1: Being an army brat sucks. Except that this is definitely a better alternative to moving to Korea.Observation #2: Forget evil, laughing, little monsters. These guys have been touched by the Abercrombie gods. They are a blur of toned, suntanned perfection.
Observation #3: I need a lock on my door. STAT.
Observation #4: Three words: six-pack abs.
Observation #5: Do not even get me started on the state of the bathroom. I'm thinking of calling in a hazmat team. Seriously.
Observation #6: These boys know how to make enemies. Big time.
Megan Meade will have to juggle a new school, a new family, a new crush -- on the boy next door, as in next bedroom door -- and a new life. Will she survive the McGowan boys?

I love this book. So. So. SO. Much. I mean, who wouldn't? A house full of 50% shirtless, 100% BOYS? Yes, please. Or at least that's how we begin our journey with Megan, an army brat who is shipped off to a family friend's home when her parents are transferred to Korea. Did I mention that family friend has a house full of boys. These aren't just any boys for that matter. They have some issues, but over all they are all adorable, vulnerable, and sweet-especially  Miller, the endearing, vulnerable boy diagnosed with Asperger's. This is definitely a light read, full of funny immature boy jokes, such as, I don't know, drawing boobs on Megan's shirts, perhaps? But their is also a captivating story with Megan's determination and passion for her sport, soccer, and a love story that is really sweet. It's absolutely a must-read if you are wanting something light.
