Megan Meade's Guide to the McGowan Boys by Kate Brian

Why is Kate Brian thankful to not have seven brothers? I always wanted brothers. I don't know any of mine. Anyways, McGowan. What a great last name. Fitting for seven hotties, huh? Ok. This book is told through first person narration, yet the character refers to herself as 'Megan'. Odd, no?The story is extremely cute, and sweet. A lot of the characters in it shouldn't exist, because you never get to see them. Finn is great, but he doesn't appear until the middle of the story. The first half of the book is kind of Evan this, Evan that.(Very annoying.) I think about hot guys a lot, but come on. I know its not all rainbows and butterflies. Maybe for some people it is, but for others, Nada. It has just occured to me that I sound like a Speed Talker. Stopping Now.

Here's the Blurb:

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 give this Book Three Stars.


  1. My friend recently read this one and loved it. The main character referring to herself in third person sounds a bit strange! I love the idea of a house full of boys though! haha
