Review How to Keep a Boy as a Pet By Diane Messidoro
Pub Electric Monkey, Egmont May 2012
How to Keep a Boy as a Pet is an amazingly written book that is so funny in the best witty way.
The book would appeal to the aimed at age group of teenage girls because they feel that they can relate to the story.
It's about a teenage girl called Circe who writes a diary entry everyday about her life. She has two best friends nemaed Tash and Ben. Ben and tash have just got together and are deeply in love. Circe feels pushed out by them but she also has other things on her mind. She wants to become a journalist like her idol Jess Bradley and investigate the minds of boys. Her focus for this is to try and tame her own and the target she has in mind is a hot boy called Jake. She's had a crush on Jake for ages and as the story continues throughout the book we are left to decide whether Circe can 'tame her man.'
I loved how the vocabularry suited the book and how it does not seem to be a planned out story. It is fun and very different.
