January 16-23, 2012

In THE BOY PROJECT (NOTES AND OBSERVATIONS OF KARA MCALLISTER), wildly creative seventh grader, Kara McAllister, just had her best idea yet. She's going to take notes on all of the boys in her grade (and a few elsewhere) in order to answer a seemingly simple question: How can she get a boyfriend? 


But Kara's project turns out to be a lot more complicated than she imagined.

Soon there are secrets, lies, and an embarrassing incident in the boy's

bathroom. Plus, Kara has to deal with mean girls, her slightly spacey BFF,

and some surprising uses for duct tape. Still, if Kara's research leads her to

the right boy, everything may just be worth it... 


Full of charts and graphs, heart and humor, this hilarious debut will resonate with tweens everywhere.
