Publisher Comments:

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?

Synopsis:

Boys. 7 of them, to be exact.

Megan is used to moving from place to place — it's typical for an army brat. But she drew the line at South Korea. She insists on staying in the States to finish her last two years of high school. So her parents made arrangements for Megan to live with their friends, the McGowans...and the McGowans' 7 sons.

Turns out, living with 7 boys might as well be a foreign country! The boys are messy. They are cliquey (who knew?). And worst of all, two of the oldest boys are H-O-T. (A problem considering they are supposed to be Megan's "brothers.") Megan is definitely in enemy territory. She needs to win over the boys' hearts without totally crushing her own.

And when Megan starts falling for one of them, sibling rivalry takes on a whole new meaning....

What is a girl to do?

Synopsis:

The only alternative to going to Korea with her military family is for Megan to live with the McGowan family. Unfortunately, the last time Megan saw the McGowans and their seven boys, they were tying her upside down from a tree limb.

This is one really good book, I stayed up till 2:30Am just to finish it, I haven't done that since Twilight. Anyway I really think you should read this book beacuse once you read the first chapter there is no way you can stop. Plus what person doesn't want to know about a girl living with at least 4 cute/Hot boys her age and all the conflict that surounds that.

Ms.Crokett look here. This is Netta's Review


So what do you get when move a army brat who has already settled down for once, into a house full of Cute, Strong, and mysterious men? A well made Drama. The main character name is Megan Meade. She is mostly a tomboy who loved the great game of soccer. She has always had a problem with being around boys and couldn?t help but think about the situation that was going to occur after school that day. After living a few years in Texas her Mom and Dad gas to transfer to Korea. In order to save herself from going to an all girls school where ?lip gloss is frowned upon? she has to move to an old family friends, the McGowan?s, house. She can remember them having four snot nose boys who did everything in their power to make her life miserable when they were little. Oh and another thing they live in New Jersey. That did not prepare her for what she was about to see when she pulled up to the driveway to the well-known McGowan house. She had thought it would be nothing. But had no idea staying here was going to change her life forever

The first thing she saw as she walked out the door of the car is four fabulous teen boys and one cute little boy, running around with their shirts off while playing ?ultimate Frisbee?. She walked out the car and he adventure begins. Not only was the family tree looking great now until she became face to face with all of them. One is the wannabe Eminem you could tell that he was up to something by the way he snickered every time he saw her. The other was the jock in the family who was having some problems with his girlfriend Hali who just happened to be the soccer team?s Team Caption. The other was the quiet Rocker who didn?t say much. The other was an artist who she will find to be the best friend you can ever ask for. The youngest teen was suffering from dieses that would give it away so I can?t tell you just yet. The little boy is a hyper monkey who always gets in the way of things. With this type of setting you can?t put the book down. And as we know with four boys and one girl, hormones start to activate.
I love this book. I hate to read but when I picked this book up off the stool in my English class, I couldn?t put it down. It also got in the way of my chores. I have never read a whole novel before that I wasn?t forced to read, and actually finish it. I think the author did a great job and wish she would continue the story. Great reading and good-bye.
