      I read this book in an hour. It was a very easy read and I could see why teens would love it. It is full of sex and teenage jargon. I didn't like the message that it sent to young girls though and I think the girls would have been a little better off had they not had that encounter with the "bad boy." He is more like every boy out there!

      Independent ReadingA Bad Boy Can Be Good For a Girl Every girl in a point in time has been a teenager, and during that period of time known a little something about a Bad Boy. A Bad Boy is usually the hot good- looking guy in school that all the girls want to be with, and knows he is only after one thing, but can’t resist his charming ways. This takes place in the fictional novel A Bad Boy Can Be Good for a Girl by Tanya Lee Stones. Three girls named Josie, Nicolette and Aviva crumble to the c [...]

      Very rarely do I not like a book. Unfortunately, this is one of those rare books. I will admit that I am biased, and I dislike girly books about boyfriends and relationships, which is perhaps why I didn't like this book from the begining. However, as I continued to read, I did not find any redeeming qualities to this book at all.My main issue with this book was how unbelievable it was. It is basically about three girls who date the same "bad boy," and their relationships end horribly. However, e [...]

      Tanya Lee Stone, A Bad Boy Can Be Good for a Girl (Wendy Lamb Books, 2008)As a reward to myself for finishing one book I started in September of 2008 and getting another to the point where I'll be able to finish it today, last night I allowed myself to crack the cover of a combustible, which is my term for a book I stick on my list of stuff to read because I'm so horrified by its very concept that I find the idea that I might end up liking it next to impossible. (It has happened on occasion, how [...]

      Josie, Nicolette and Aviva have one thing in common. He goes by the intials T.L and he misled them all.Josie, who never cared much for boys or what others thought of her in the word of Middle School, finds herself slightly less certain upon entering High School. And even though she balks are her own reactions when a hot Senior jock starts paying her attention, she finds herself somehow unable to resist. But he continually pushes her boundries, trying to move beyond where she’s prepared to go. [...]

      Reviewed by Me for TeensReadTooDon't let the title of this book fool you. The "bad boy" in question is definitely bad, and the "can be good" part is more in the vein of "thank God I learned something out of this" rather than "oh, he's so gooood to me." That being said, every high-school age girl in the world needs to read this book, before they meet the proverbial bad boy who, although good at breaking your heart, isn't really good at anything else. Told in verse, A BAD BOY CAN BE GOOD FOR A GIR [...]

      What if you find these thoughts in your teen daughter's text messages or on her Facebook wall? "but then he walked right over and fit himself right into my puzzle.""I hope I remember these feelings forever: stupid, humiliated, foolish, stung, heartbroken, pissed off, and a little bit wiser. I hope I remember forever, so I never fall for this kind of boy again.""Nobody calls boys whores. Why is that?""The phrase "nail her" flashed like a huge neon sign in my brain.""And I am so pissed at myself b [...]

      Three girls get messed about by the same guy and warn their fellow school sisters in the back of a library book!It's a novel in verse which is quite enjoyable and makes for a very quick and easy read. I also first read this when I was like 12 and the book was passed around my little circle of friends- it was all very scandalous with talk of sex!To a degree it's a somewhat inspirational, eye opening book but the topic (player guys and girls uniting) is a bit too overused for me to feel any connec [...]

      Josie, Nicolette and Aviva, all ranging between 14 and 18-years-old, are three strong bright girls, but when the same guy enters their lives at different times, he worms his way under their skin and into their hearts and they ignore their gut instincts warning them against him. Everyone gets hurt. Josie is first, and decides to do something about it. She checks out Forever by Judy Blume from the library, and writes a warning to all girls in the back of the book, and tells every girl she meets to [...]

      Hmmm so you are thinking that that the hot, popular senior in your school is over the moon about you and can't get enough of your wit and charm mixed with a bit of sexiness? Well join the club! Because chances are if he is romancing you, he has romanced others and you won't be the first or last! Join the "broken hearts club" ladies because some guys just want you as a trophy- and the game they are playing is you. A Bad Boy Can Be Good for a Girl is the terrific story of three high school girls w [...]

      I read A Bad Boy Can Be Good For A Girl. This book was pretty interesting actually. I thought I would have not liked it, but turns out, I loved that book. I only checked it out because i had to choose a book, and it was worth checking it out. Anyways, this book is about this girl named Josie, she's a freshman in high school. she met this guy named t.l (they dont say his real name in the book, so those are his initials.) anyways, they start hanging out, kissing and everything his friends would al [...]

      This novel in verse is a powerful essay on high school pressure on girls to be sexually active. Three different girls get taken by the same bad boy who is just building his stats at their expense. The first and youngest is angry enough to start a warning/commiseration commentary in the back of the library's copy of Judy Blume's forever. Despite that fact that I'm a librarian and normally frown on marking up library books, I found this touch perfect - and the three stories interweave easily and r [...]

      Very quick read, novel in verse. I picked up this book because its frequently banned, so that's always a good reason to check something out. I guess I'm lucky. I can relate to the girls' feelings, but not their experience. So I hope girls don't read this and throw all guys into that "guys only want one thing" stereotype. Because it's not true. At least in my experience.The question- when it comes to banned books- is, is this book helpful? Will it save a girl from a little heartache? If so, I sup [...]

      No matter how hard we tell ourselves not to fall for Mr. Wrong, we can't help falling in love with the "bad boy". You know, the guy who pretends to be in love with you, then used you and pretends that his love for you never happened.Josie, Nicolette and Aviva have that in common. They fell for the bad boy's tricks. Josie stopped just in time, the others weren't so lucky, but they bounced back and warned the other girls about him, making him an outcast. This novel in verse, has a great message fo [...]

      Quick and appealing read. I read this book because a teacher at my school brought it to my attention for inappropriate scenes. It had one section that was a upfront about oral sex but I didn't feel shocked by it and doubt that many HS students would. I actually thought the story could be useful to a lot of girls. Questioning your worth, how you relate to the opposite sex, new relationships, emerging sexuality are true struggles. Kids can get a lot out of the situation without having to go throug [...]

      Well. Welcome back to high school. This book completely captured the experience of compromising your self-esteem, interests, friendships, etc. for a guy. Not the most pleasant read, but one that should be put in the hands of all teen girls out there. I especially like how she dealt with the notions of empowerment, and how situations can flip on you. But, truth be told, it was a bit of a bummer.

      Loved this free verse novel that explores how one guy in his quest to conquer as many girls as he can effects love and sex with 3 high school girls. What did I learn- this is a good book for girls to read so they can see how a guy can make you do things you don't want, but also how the girls can ignore all the signals

    19. Hayley Rife on said:

      I absolutely LOVED this novel in verse! It told a story that many young adult girls can relate to. I loved how Tanya Lee Stone was able to capture the true essence of three female characterizations! This is definitely a YA novel that the girls will pass around!

    20. April Marie on said:

      A Bad Boy Can Be Good for a Girl was a very easy read for me! It took me only one night to start and finish the book. I liked this book because it was very persistant, it got straight to the point. The topic was very realistic in today's world for teenagers.

      it just goes to show that after their cute years boys only want one thing well not exactly but you get what i mean!

      "A truly great library contains something in it to offend everyone." -Jo Godwin I've never understood why some people feel like they have the power to limit what others can or cannot read, although I understand they have a desire to control others' thoughts through this limitation. Yet, when people have the audacity to revoke the rights of others to have access to a book that they haven't read in its entirety, it makes me crazy!! Reading one paragraph or a couple of parts of a book and banning i [...]

      This had a lot of things going on, some good, some less good, some extremely problematic. It bothers me to no end that the "good girl" that the other girls are supposed to be modeling themselves after is the only one who didn't have sex with him. I like the metaphor of her being the younger one, the youth of tomorrow, that is able to speak up for herself, which might be trying to show that the future is looking brighter for young women's voices. I love "Forever," and I understand why it was used [...]

      A bad boy can be good for a girl was AMAZING! The form and the way the book was written was truly amazing and it was super captivating! The three girls, Josie, Nicolette, and Aviva all fall for the same guy who does them wrong. They pick a book, Forever, where all the other girls who fall for the guy can write all their burning thoughts on how terrible he is. this book was super captivating and well written! I LOVED IT!

      A really good poetry book about three different girls who fall for the same "bad boy". My favorite was definitely Aviva.
