    One thought on “Boy2Girl”

    1. I went in to this book thinking it was going to engage all kinds of important issues with gender, which was exciting, especially in a book aimed towards a younger audience. Maybe my expectations were a bit high, but this book was nothing but disappointing. Reading it, it feels like an effort to engage topics of gender made by somebody who doesn't know what they're talking about. When a character refers to a group of girls as "chicks" another character tells him not to be sexist, despite the enti [...]

    2. LOOOOOOOOOL this was HILARIOUS, entertaining and amazing!!!!!!!!!!loved it!!!!!!Tyrone: That's him? Bit of a titch, isn't he?Jake: And get a load of that hairMatthew: It's like I told you. He's a hippy.Jake: Looks more like a girl to meMatthew: You wait ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------"Over the next few days, as we showed Sam around what he insisted on calling 'the hood', he talked about his life back home."------------- [...]

    3. Ironically this is the first novel I’ve made it through this year. The irony part of it is that it pissed me off quite hard. I think the biggest factor behind that is that I found it on the ‘rainbow shelf’ at the library, a shelf meant for LGBTQ+ related books. And yeah, this book vaguely relates to cross-dressing, even if it’s because of a dare, because at some points the character involved in that discusses the ‘freedom’ it allows him to behave differently than when he’s dressed [...]

    4. This book deserved a five star rating because it made me laugh out loud so often. It was a brilliant book and I loved Blacker's use of narrative voice. It is a multiple first person narrative which allows the reader a close and personal account of the characters feelings and emotions, this is particular interesting as there is a mixture of both adult and child characters. The book gives the reader a wonderful insight into gender and demonstrates the way in which gender is socially constructed. I [...]

    5. I was recommended this book by a teen patron who loves John Green. I can see why kids would like it, but it must have just not been my thing, because it took me FOREVER to get through it (and it's not a hard book). It was funny, but not quite funny enough to make me laugh out loud -- clever, but not quite clever enough to make me think. I did like the way the author chose to tell the story, as if each of the characters in the book were being interviewed about Sam throughout the novel, but I thou [...]

    6. Book ReviewTitle: Boy2GirlAuthor: Terence BlackerGenre: YA/Family/Social Rating: ****Review: In the beginning of Boy2Girl we meet Matthew Burton as his American cousin Sam arrives after the death of his mother; Matthew’s aunt Galaxy. Sam is exactly what you’d expect a 13-year-old orphan to be angry, withdrawn and everything else. As he tries to adjust to a life in a London he struggles but seems to be trying at least. Even for a multiple P.O.V. novel there are loads of them. Also, I know we [...]

    7. A far read - but problematic in some ways - -The men are shown in a more balanced way - the women were almost exclusively stereotypes-No consideration of Transgender issues - even for a moment - just 'won't it be fun if the boy dresses as a girl for a joke/to hide' - it comes so close to having something, but then fails completely (Sam saying he feels free as a girl - his improved behaviour etc)-Pretty much no positive on any LGBT issues (Matt's parents and 'the g word')- the whole date bit is j [...]

    8. I often look for books that play with gender stereotypes. This book did just that. A young and very tough teen finds a sense of freedom and power when he decides to go to his new school dressed as a girl. I did like this book, but the author just couldn't seem to let go of most of the stereotypes about boys and girls. The girls were backstabbing gossips and the boys were emotionally stunted. Even the main character who was crossdressing was still unable to break free from stereotypical boy behav [...]

    9. This book was full of funnines (if that's a word) and comical issues. In this book, a rebelious Sam's (he's a boy) mothe rdies in theri nice home in USA. He is moved to his aunt's house in london, england. Sadly, he's a stubborn, swearing, long haired maniac. His cosein, Matt, who is Sam's aunt's son, is not too happy about Sam's arrival. Immediatly Sam wants to fit in with Matt's completly unpopular group, The Sheds. The Sheds aren't looking for new recruits, so they make a proporstion for Sam [...]

    10. Sam is sent over to relatives in Englad after his mom is killed. Sam has a major attitude problem and soon his cousin decides to get even with him by challenging him to dress up as a girl for the first week of school. Sam quickly finds he can be someone new when he's dressed as Samantha. Things change though when it seems Sam is enjoying himself too much as Samantha. When Sam's long lost dad returns to get him, Sam has to decide who his true family really is. I really enjoyed the characters in t [...]

    11. i loved this story! Listen, this book examines feelings and motive of teens, the whole spectrum, and what they will do to get what they need and what they do when they don't get it. The gender switch is a clever way to explore that as well as what we expect from kids. i loved the emotional bravery of the main character and how he gained insight about himself, was able to actually share it and then spoke fearlesslyh for all to see his pain, his anger, his admission of who he was. I admit, I kinda [...]

    12. Jaunty and fast-paced YA novel about a tough-talking 13-year-old California boy who moves to England to live with his aunt's family and winds up passing as a girl at his new school when a prank gets out of hand. Mild humor about gender differences, notable mainly for the author's point-of-view experimentation -- he tells the story in very short chapters through the eyes of 10 or 11 peripheral characters without ever entering the mind of his protagonist. The result is sort of a "Rashomon" or "As [...]

    13. this book was kinda extreme. the game just went out of control. it was fun when it first started but this prank hurt a lot of people in the end. i didnt like how the author splits the entire novel between so many character's perspective. it made it very confusing for some time. why did Sam even agree to dress up as a girl to play with his cousin and his friends? sam seemed like a fun person to hang out with. he made everything interesting for the boys.

    14. My story, Boy 2 girl, written by Terence Blacker has a really interesting topic. The writer has Terence Blacker’s hilarious novel, talks about the territory of an early- teen life in a classic story. This story is hilarious. The story mainly talks about a male teenager that was dared to go to a new school being a girly girl. I liked how the writer used humor all the time in this story. I recommend this story for all the people who are interested in school and family problems.

    15. There are WAY too many points of view in this story, and very little plot development. There's too much time spent on seeing each incident from multiple perspectives, which would be fine if there were, say, three perspectives consistently given. But I have counted at least twenty characters whose point-of-view we see, and that makes this book hard to follow and not very interesting.

    17. I love this book so much, it is extremely hilarious and so different from what you usually read! I love the characters and the whole story all together.

    18. Firstly, this was not the book I expected. It wasn't bad, but nor was it quite the exploration of gender/identity that I was expecting. This clash between what you might think you're getting and what's there could lead to a lot of disappointed readers.Matt has a fairly safe life. Nothing much happens, then things are shaken up when his mum is given custody of her nephew, Sam, after the death of his mother. Sam is prickly, tough, but clearly deeply upset by the absence of his father. Naturally, p [...]

    19. This is not a serious book, so do not read it if you are looking for a deep examination of gender roles/ stereotypes. This is a book to read if you want something silly and fun- something to keep you laughing the whole way through! After his mom dies in a car crash, Sam (an American) is sent to live with his family in London. He tries to get along with his cousin Matt's friends but, after causing a scene and getting the group in trouble with the police, they decide that, if Sam still wants to ha [...]

    20. When Sam arrives in Matthew's life after his mum dies, the people around them all have their views on Sam from his jailed dad to his crazy anger outbursts.Then Sam gets dared to start school as a girl, Sam takes the challenge, fooling them all getting friends in Elena and Charley while Gary dislikes her after she turns a him down for a date.However, Sam has a mighty inheritance coming his way but while his jailbird dad tracks him down to Matthew's he doesn't suspect Sam is Sam the girl or Simone [...]

    21. I was given a copy of this book from the publishers via Netgally for an honest review.I'm not sure who the author aimed this book at. It is obviously a reluctant reader but it is way too long for a younger reader and too immature for an older reader, - it eludes to Sam swearing a few times but doesn't say the swear words - whats the point in that if not for a young audience??. I also lost the thread at the beginning of the story, too many characters having a say when you are getting use to the i [...]

    22. 'Boy2Girl' is a wonderful novel about friendship, understanding one another, loss and finding your true self. Since it's written from different perspectives of all the book characters it is a really fast read and a really humorous one. I love the idea presented by the book that it doesn't matter if we you are a girl or a boy, you are still important to the society. The genders aren't enemies, they can help each other and they need each other in prder to find some balance in the world. From my po [...]

    23. Real missed opportunity here. It's a good read but despite the premise of challenging gender stereotypes, does nothing beyond reinforcing them.Pretty sure one of the last things one of the main characters in the book says is that he's not going to cry because it's "girly". Quite the voyage of discovery he went on then.

    24. Thank you for sending me this book. A teenage read, regarding gender issues. An easy read about a difficult subject. I liked the concept of reading about all the characters points of view. The story flowed along and all in all an enjoyable read.

    25. this book is a great example of gender stereotyping. the book was based on a different character point of view every couple of paragraphs. which worked really well as it build up how different things affect people. its not a adult novel yet themes were mature

    26. I didn't like it. To me it was to confusing to whether he was a boy or he was a girl in his eyes.

    27. A hilarious, light-hearted book. Great for night-time reading! Had me chuckling at several points, would highly recommend.
