Babe in Boyland is an incredibly funny book, I found myself laughing out loud quite often while reading it. The main character (Natalie) encounters many situations that (almost) all girls would be terrified of entering. Natalie went there for research purposes, but instead finds herself surrounded by drama. I absolutely loved this book, but I found it quite predictable at times.

Such a funny book! I really enjoyed it! It reminded me of OHSHC (an Anime) because of it's genderbender elements, But for those who don't know anime and manga then it'd be like the movie "She's the Man"!

I actually thought it was quite cute!

A cute unique read. It was fun to read about a girl dressing up as a boy to find out what they really think. It was intersting and i really enjoyed it. A must read if you have time.

Such a fun book! A girl dressing up as a boy and going undercover at an all-boys prep school trying to find out the answer to what boys really think=fantastic! I thought the author captured the teen voices really well and along with the hilarious laugh out loud moments there were very real emotions throughout this entire story. I heartily recommend Babe in Boyland to anyone looking for a fun, fast and heartfelt read.

A little grittier than I prefer for YA, but it was a cute read. I kept drawing parallels to She's the Man as well.
