Kara is determined to get a boyfriend, and soon. Once she realized that like practically everyone has had a boyfriend and she hasn't, she starts the boy project and uses her science project to do it. Kara takes notes on all of the boys she can. She finds however, love happens where and when it wants and science can't do anything about it.
A super funny story that any middle schooler or even any one who's never been in a relationship can relate to. I especially liked all the visual aids put in the book. The idea of this story seems to be far from fact but in reality it lays not far from it, showing just how crazy love can make us. A super cute and funny story that I am looking forward to reading again.
