Title:Megan Meade's Guide to the McGowan Boys
Author: Kate Brian
published: October 2006
Pages: 268
Rating:5 out of 5

Goodreads synopsis: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?

Fate's thoughts: I abso-friggen-lutely loved this book. It was so fun to read. I even didn't mind the fact that it was in third person, which i usually don't like. this book is a roller coaster ride of major drama.
    The story starts off with Megan finding out that her family is once again moving, but this time something is different. Her parents are going to Korea. This upsets Megan, so her parents send her off to there old friend, the Mcgowans and there seven boys. The story takes off from there. Throughout the story i began to enjoy reading about Megan's character. she was always pretty nice even when the person in front off her was giving her crap. It was a refreshing break from the usual whiny heroine. Also, the Mcgowans were all really fun to read about. I myself have always been in a relatively small family so it was fun reading about how they treated each other. They kind of reminded me of the family from the movie Cheaper by the Dozen. Anyway, i also really liked seeing how Megan was kind of contributing into the family and kind of making things better. It was fun reading about how she interacted with each boy. All in all this book was a GREAT read. i recommend it to people that want something fun and sweet.
