Since I recently read The Boy Problem by Kami Kinard, I thought I’d use Gaughen’s worksheet to review Kami’s book, a companion middle-grade novel to her first book, The Boy Project, which I reviewed exactly two years ago.
“And this is his hairline,” I pointed to a jagged edge that jutted out form the gooey forehead. “Don’t you think it looks exactly like a guy?”
“I guess I can kind of see it,” said Kara.
“Kind of see it? I’ll tell you what I see: the image of my future crush. Look at that handsome profile! He’s perfect for me!”
“This is the best day of my life!” I said.
“You’re either overreacting,” said Kara, “or losing it.”
“Am not! That pile of cheese was a sign—a sign from the universe that the right guy is out there for me after all!” (p.7-8)
