No Boys Allowed


No Boys Allowed

By Marilyn Levinson

Summary: Cassie's dad moved away, her best friend Bobby is driving her nuts, and her great uncle Harry has invaded her house. It's time to boycott boys!

When her dad moves away to marry another woman, Cassie Landauer decides that there will be no boys allowed in her house --- or her life. Not even her best friend, Bobby! But then her mom invites Great Uncle Harry to stay with them for a few months. That's the last straw.

Great Uncle Harry takes over Cassie's bedroom, treats her like a little kid, and is always around the house. Cassie is sick and tired of it! But how can she boycott boys when one of them is living in her home?

All boys can't be that bad . . . can they?

First off, the main character, Cassie, was incredibly rude to her best friend for no reason. I felt so bad for him. He tries to talk some sense into her, she yells at him for simply being a guy. I found it rather annoying, actually. Also, I really wasn't interested in this story. I tried, but it was pretty boring until the end. It's not that it wasn't a terrible story. I just wasn't engaged.

Now that I've gotten the negatives out of the way, this was a  realistic story. Cassie and Corinne were both struggling with their dad leaving them, and it was very believable. Uncle Harry was awesome. I loved him so much; he was like the grandpa everyone wishes they had. And in the end, as stated above, I started to enjoy this story; otherwise this would not have gotten as many stars.

This is a good read for anyone who has gone through a divorce in their family.
