Brooke Reviews: The Boy Problem

Brooke Webster returns with an all new Brooke Reviews. Check out what one very cool 10-year-old thinks of the newest book from Kami Kinard. Don't forget to check out Kami's appearance on the Let's Get Busy podcast episode #49 for a peek into Kami's writing process and more.

The Boy Problem 
The Boy Problem, the sequel to The Boy Project, was hard to put down because it was like a sneak peek into a real person’s life. I loved how Kami Kinard wrote this book as if it was a diary of Tabitha Reddy. Tabitha believes in telling the future or making predictions. At the end of everyday in her diary, she makes a prediction about her life. Tabitha is desperate to find a boyfriend and is always looking for signs pointing her towards the right boy. During her search, her Uncle’s house and cousin’s school are destroyed by a horrible storm, so her focus turns to helping relatives. Along the way, she finds an unexpected person who soon becomes her best friend. People who are feeling left out and self-conscious will learn in this book that being the odd one out is not as bad as it seems because someday you’ll find your own way to shine.
