Then He Ate My Boy Entrancers
Then he ate my boy entrancers is book six. I swear it's not as dirty as the title sounds. In Georgia's world, boy entrancers are fake eyelashes. And as always, Georgia is doing her best to entrance boys. She is probably about as crazy as Stephanie Plum, but she's fifteen, British, and stalking boys instead of bounties.
In book 6, Georgia is obsessively trying to gain the attention of Italian-American, super sexy Masimo, who took over singing for the Stiff Dylans when Georgia's ex boyfriend left for New Zealand (to study marsupials and sing depressing songs to them while standing in the river... according to Georgia).
But it's never as straight forward as it should be. Georgia is getting boy advice from Dave the Laugh, who is just a friend even though she can't stop snogging him. There's also the added bonus that he might not be okay with being her boy-type mate helping her catch other guys. (Oh man, I loooove Dave the L). Then there is the fact that Masimo just got out of a serious relationship and is just looking for something fun, which means he's also seeing Georgia's nemesis Wet Lindsay.
As always hilarity ensues. Georgia's family goes on holiday to Memphis, Tennessee and Georgia spends way too much time and money trying to track down Masimo who is visiting family in Manhattan. As an American, it was very funny to see the British take on American life. It reminded me a bit of the culture shock I experienced coming back to the states after living in England (man, I miss it!).
One of my favorite parts of the whole series occurs in this book. Georgia's baby sister Libby sings a song about her bum (Libby is weird, funny but weird) and an American lady thinks she is adorable and tells her the American word for bum... fanny. For those who don't know... in England, this is quite a dirty word referring to another part of the lady's anatomy. When Libby starts using this word in England it is just classic!
At the end, we once again get a set up for the next book. Love it! Then he ate my boy entrancers counts toward the following challenges: 100+, read me baby one more time, and seven in a series for the Hogwarts reading challenge. Track my progress on my 2011 Challenges page.
