This is one of those books with a concept that is interesting and original and yet there’s no way I would want to trade places with the main character.
Megan Meade gets to live with family friends and their seven sons because her own parents have to move to Korea. Watching someone move in with seven boys is pretty exciting because, like Megan Meade says, these boys are unpredictable and that makes them curious creatures.
But the experience isn’t always good, for either Megan or the reader. These boys need discipline. They need to wake the hell up. They need to start caring about other people and not just about their privileged asses. It’s definitely a cliché to have a girl be the wise one and try to make the boys think about the bad things they’ve done.
In this case, Finn, Even, Doug and cie. in no way deserve Megan Meade but they are LUCKY Megan cares enough to help them out even when they’re acting like jerks, which is most of the time.
Megan deserves a dozen trophies or to be written in each of the boys’ testaments.
