Kirkus Reviews calls Boy Proof "an unusual, successful, appealing effort from first-time novelist Cecil Castellucci." Victoria Jurgen, who goes by the name "Egg" after her favorite sci-fi heroine, doesn't have many friends, and definitely doesn't turn the heads of any boys. But she likes it that way. That is until she meets Max, a new kid who might be the only one to really understand her. Download and start listening now!

    " good for kids who are Sci-Fi fanatics. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kayla Hunter | 2/13/2014

    " I think it was one of the best books I've ever read. I love the story of how a girls life is forever changed when a new guy transfers to hew school. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Crystal Costa | 2/10/2014

    " This was a nice quick read about a girl who is just trying to find herself. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 laaaaames | 2/8/2014

    " I've heard from a lot of people that this book is pretty so-so, but honestly I enjoyed it a lot and flew through it. Basically what I loved is that none of the geek stuff is sugar-coated. Meg had mentioned to me that the great thing about this book is it doesn't pretend geeks are just cool kids who need a second look or to take off their glasses or whatever, and I fully agree. So, you know. I'd give three stars, but I'm doing four because I think props for that should be huge. "

    " Great read; love the characters. Victora, a.k.a. 'Egg' after her favorite movie character, is a gifted high school girl hiding behind her very angry persona. She thinks she's doing just fine, thank you, even though her parents are divorced and her classmates not only don't interest her, they don't get her, either. Then, new kid, Max shows up and she's not as boy proof as she thought she was. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristen Landon | 7/7/2013

    " Egg is a hard character for me to identify with. But I liked her from a distance. Good character arc. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marissa Murphy | 2/24/2013

    " Very interesting book, the girl battles her how she wants to look and who she wants to be. Story ends with a happy ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alexandra | 1/23/2013

    " See my review on Book Ali, which should be posted by 11:59 PM on 07 Jan 2009. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan M. | 10/5/2012

    " It starts out a little weird because this girl is into space movies and stuff, but she sort of loosens up during the story. It was a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trip | 12/28/2011

    " How can you not cheer for strange geek girls? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Summer | 6/18/2011

    " Read this in two hours. Excellent light reading! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shelley | 5/14/2011

    " Garden variety plot about a disenfranchised lonely girl who doesn't like anyone or much of anything until she wakes up and makes herself happy. Pretty spare writing, but I got into it pretty fast and ended up really liking Victoria a lot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Virginia | 5/9/2011

    " read b/c of a review on a kidlit blog; about a nerd girl obsessed with a sci-fi movie character. liked the understated way things were worded and plot developed. liked that she changed her own direction in life w/habit and attitude adjustments. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ben | 4/22/2011

    " Pretty good book. Much better than her nextbook. Somewhat limited in audience realistically though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lilly | 4/13/2011

    " Yeah, I liked this book. It was another book that was different. So I can check "Anti-social outcast geek" from my mental list of Types of Books to Read. "
