We still have not gotten any new teens books... so today we are continuing to showcase books that are not brand new, but still good reads!

Absolutely, positively NOT... by David LaRochelle

From the book jacket...
"Steven doesn't know if he'll pass his driver's test or if he'll ever understand his parents, but there's one thing he knows for sure: He's absolutely, positively NOT gay. How could he be, when he conscientiously collects photos of girls in bikinis and makes a point to sit at the jock table? So what if he takes a golden retriever to the fance because he can't face telling his mom that he doesn't have a date? So what if he thinks Coach Bowman is, well, extremely, unnervingly handsom. Who wouldn't? Right?"

Boy2girl by Terence Blacker

From the book jacket...
"Matthew's American cousin, Sam, has come to London to live with the family. Sam is a charismatic, funny kid, but can he be trusted to be a reliable friend? Matthew and his "mates" decide that Sam must undertake a challenge in order to prove himself: he must start off his new year at their school as a girl...
It turns out that Sam makes a great girl. He fools everyone at Bradbury Hill School, stepping over lines and blurring boundaries of all sorts. And the longer the prank goes on, the more outlandish the repercussions."
