“I love the idea of the big life – the life that matters, the life that makes a difference. The life where stuff happens, where people take action. The opposite of the life where the girl can’t even speak to the boy she likes; the opposite of the life where the friends aren’t even good friends, and lots of days are wasted away feeling bored and kind of okay, like nothing matters much.”
This is such a quirky book. It’s incredibly short, it’s meant to be taken as a light, short story.
You’re following Gretchen, a girl who doesn’t have a lot of confidence or luck with boys. One day she wishes she could become a fly on the wall in the boys locker room to see what boys are like, it comes true.
This book is funny and really light hearted. It’s a really nice read, especially when you’re in a reading slump or just looking for something to break up two larger books or more serious books.
There are parts of this I disliked, it was quite repetitive at points and some of the characters were a little contradicting. But apart from that, it was an enjoyable short read.
I have other books by this author yet to read. It shall be interesting to see what qualities of her writing she transmits through other books.
