Book Review- Putting Boys on the Ledge by Stephanie Rowe

Good Reads Summary

Meet Blueberry Waller, whose name is the only interesting thing about her life. Until now.

Not only is Blue dealing with the worst name in the world, crazy parents and a clingy younger sister, she just got a part in the school play. And now she’s acting with Heath Cavendish, total crush-worthy senior. He would never give a second look to a girl like Blue. Except he has.

Her friends say Blue should play it cool, put Heath on the Ledge so she can keep the upper hand. Trouble is, she doesn’t know how to be clever around boys. Thankfully her pal Colin offers his help in teaching her how to get the guy. But he’s just being a good friend. Isn’t he?

Suddenly the wallflower is getting all the attention. But will being in the spotlight keep Blue from making the right decisions...for her?

A Girlfriend’s Guide to Boys: For these four friends, understanding the world of boys is only half the battle

Tee's Review:
Blueberry Waller, or Blue as she is known to her friends is head over heels for Heath the hunky lead in the school play she is in ( She plays his mother in the only speaking non singing part). There is a problem tho, her and her friends have this rule about boys- Put them on the ledge and avoid them knowing you like them. Basically a  leave them wanting more kinda thing. One of the friends willing to help Blue win over Heath is Colin, the hunky stable boy who takes over Blue's chores while she is in the play...But Heath may actually want more than Blue's friendship..

Putting Boys on the Ledge was predictable, but it was a fun quick read. It takes you no time to read it. The characters are well rounded and believable. Blue's friends are caring and worry about her being with Heath, the boys got a reputation, and they come to her rescue a few times when she gets in some awkward situations.  The next book deals with one of Blue's friends, I would probably read it, on a day I had nothing else to do, actually I think Putting Boys on the Ledge is the perfect book to take to the beach..its a breezy easy read!
