Fly on the Wall: How One Girl Saw Everything

by

Fly on the Wall: How One Girl Saw Everything Cover

 

Staff Pick

With a wink and a nod to Kafka, Fly on the Wall is all about exactly what it sounds like — a girl struggling to understand those of the male persuasion one day gets her wish and wakes up as a fly. Marvel comics, nonconformists, and the mystery of the ever-elusive high school guy abound.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From E. Lockhart, author of the highly acclaimed, New York Times bestseller We Were Liars, which John Green called "utterly unforgettable," and the uproarious and heartwarming Ruby Oliver novels, comes the fast-paced and hysterically funny Fly on the Wall.

At the Manhattan School for Art and Music, where everyone is “different” and everyone is “special,” Gretchen Yee feels ordinary. She’s the kind of girl who sits alone at lunch, drawing pictures of Spider-Man, so she won’t have to talk to anyone; who has a crush on Titus but won’t do anything about it; who has no one to hang out with when her best (and only real) friend Katya is busy.

One day, Gretchen wishes that she could be a fly on the wall in the boys’ locker room–just to learn more about guys. What are they really like? What do they really talk about? Are they really cretins most of the time?

Fly on the Wall is the story of how that wish comes true.

From the Hardcover edition.

About the Author

E. Lockhart is the author of The Boyfriend List, and its companion, The Boy Book. She has never turned into an animal of any sort and her knowledge of the boys' locker room is purely imaginary. Visit her on the Web at www.theboyfriendlist.com.
