OnalOn the positive side I did like the character Lyman All the other guys pretty much sucked though This is part of a series so I ll check out the other ones but with pretty low xpectations Boy Shoppingby Nia Stephens233 pgs Dafina Books for Young Readers 995ISBN 13 978 0 7582 1929 9ISBN 10 0 7582 1929 6Kiki a cool drummer and a chick Everyone has always looked at her as if she was only a drummer and not a girl being treated like one of the guys in her band She has a crush on her best friend Mark but he doesn t see the word girl on Kiki s forehead He only treats her as his best friend and not his girlfriend a totally different feeling than Kiki Kiki only wants Mark to ask her out but instead other people ones who she doesn t like which is just veryone asks her out unceasinglyThis has been going on for a very long time but it s going to be stopped because she has decided to give up on him and move on in life She has decided to give Boy Shopping a try When she went on the internet to surf for boys 4 of the ones that best matches her popped out They were Lyman Joshua Jacob and Michael Who is she going to choose Well this is the readers job They are the ones who choose Kiki s boyfriend and if they don t want the first person they chose they can just flip back to that page and choose another boyI like books like this because love relationships aren t like this in reality There isn t always a going back and there also isn t a choosing another person if you didn t like the first one This is the only time when you can choose what boys you want and not having them reject you Also you can read about Kiki going out with different boys All of them have different personalities and who knows who Kiki truly likes besides Mark Although she said she ll forget about Mark and would give boy shopping a try does it really mean she can truly forget about him Can she really spend all of the time she has with another boy that isn t the Mark she s been having a crush on as the love of her life I like this book because you re allowed to choose about what you want to read In this case you can choose the boy that you re interested in This makes it seem like instead of choosing a boyfriend for Kiki you re choosing a boyfriend for yourself The only difference is that the character you chose wouldn t be a person in reality or is this not true Wow What can I say about Boy Shopping Well I could say it was a very good book by Nia Stephens I loved it It was so different than many other books that I have read or ven look at briefly It was about a rocker chick named Kiki who really should have a date close to almost Annual Editions: Technologies, Social Media, and Society every night But unfortunately she doesn t But her luck turns when her friend tells her about this online dating website She also plays the drums in a band called Temporary Insanity with two of her boy best friends The three things that stood out to me were the act of me being able to pick whom she went out with next the different characters and the different things that went onI really loved the fact that I could pick who Kiki went out with next To me that really stood out as uniue It was so different from any other books that I havever read It s not like I haven t ver read a good book because I have Boys where very click of the mouse allows you the reader to choose Kiki's datesLyman is an uber fine classical pianist and DJ who likes playing with minds as much as music Joshua the jock speaks Mandarin and teaches English on the side but he's got plenty of time for playin' the gameJacob is a Terrence Howard look alike with an online profile that leaves a little too much.
This book was about Ki Ki Kelvin a famous rock star and how she likes her band mate but is to scared to but later when she goes on this site called HelloHello she finds other guys then Mark her band mate tells her he loves her It was okay Very well written however it wasn t really my style I didn t like how ach choice xcept one led you back to the starting point I would ve liked it better if time was taken to develop the other choices so that they re not necessarily wrong but rather just an alternate Black Heart, Red Ruby ending BOY shopping is a book that really relates to me in real life and i really apresiate this book i feelt that this book is about a girl and how she can fix her bad problems and choicesi read this book by mah self and i read this book in 2 weeks and i looked 4 it at the liberty i recomend thisfor all the girl who thinks they making bad choices I saw this book on my friends goodread and I found it to be interesting title wiseI love how this book made people like me love it The reason for this is you can actually choose who you want to go out with instead of boys rejecting youThe main character in this book Kiki really likes her best friend who is a guy but the guy doesn t really feel the same about her He just thinks of her as a friendI wish in life we can choose who we can go out with instead of all these drama boys are the only ones that can be a player a girl can too and kiki is one of those girl players kiki really doesn t have anything new in her life boys are just not interesting now until she found out something called boy shopping kiki now found herself stuck in between some boys and she has alot of uestions going in and out of her head she doesn t know which one is right for her or which one she can really depned onrelationship is a very confusing thingspecially in your teen years how can kiki survive this it is very simple Kiki is a drummer who has an amazing style But she s tired of being one the boys she has ye on so caled bestclose freind Mark who is also in the band with her Unforunatly a lot girls are also after him too bad because he is the only person in the band that is not after Kiki As she was about to give up on boys a freind reccomended her a site where you can choose which boys are your best match I thought it was creative how the author can let the reader control which boy Kiki keeps seeing On the other hand I gave it three stars beceause it wasn t as xciting as I thought it would be and wasn t very different from other books I have read I liked the concept of a Choose Your Own AdventureBoy YA book but I thought the xecution wasn t great Many of the alternate paths ie dump him or keep dating had repetitive writing with some conversations nearly verbatim One of the guys was basically a stalker Other annoying things The main character ditched her friend at a party seems like an opportunity for date rape possibilities galore The main character freaked out over bootlegs of her band s concert First off can any teen honestly say they haven t illegally downloaded music online Also many live concert bootlegs aren t sold but traded or given away by hardcore fans Does the character like alienating her fans The main character s friends seemed pretty one dimensi.

T s just that I was able to actually go to a page and pick someone and go to another page and read what would happen and how it would happen I liked how I could also see what would happen if Kiki stayed with the guy or if she just broke it off with him This book was very different and it was very uniue I just loved itI liked the different characters and their many unusual ways I liked Kiki s best friends and their unlike actions Jazmine was the out spoken one Mark had be friends with Kiki for mostly all their lives He also is the bass player in the band that Kiki plays the drums in I liked her many different dates as well I loved Lyman He was so outgoing and he loved all types of music from classical to rock and roll Now he was a great guy but he was just too sneaky and he illegally downloaded many of Temporary Insanity s music So obviously he is not for KikiI really loved the many different things that actually took place I liked how when one guy was acting like a jerk on one of her dates she was able to go to her friends for comfort And she actually kissed Mark her best friend and the guy she has been crushing on forever I liked the fact that Dreaming Me: An African-American Woman's Buddhist Journey even one of the guys that she meet went to her school And he turned out to be a very nice guy Then later on turned right back around to be a jerkKiki is tired of being treated like one of the guys So she turned to the Internet for a date But the things that attracted me were the act of me being able to pick whom she went out with next the different characters and the different things that went on In the book Boy Shopping by Nia Stephens Kiki an African American teenage girl wants to find her perfect soul mate Kiki is sick of being treated like one of the guys She s a drummer with a great sense of style and the boys are always hitting on her But the only ones actually asking her out are her band friends This book is teen fiction and is geared towards young women who want to learn a thing or two about dating I found this book very interesting to read because it s weird to think that there are people in the world that actually use online dating websites to match themselves with other people I find online dating websites very unsafe because you have no idea who you re talking to One thing I really liked about this book was the context The author made the book in a certain format so that you can choose which boy Kiki decides to stay with First Kiki meets a cute young man names Lyman who draws and is a DJ Then she meets Joshua the jock who teachesnglish and speaks Mandarin Then there s Jacob who gives Kiki the butterflies just by his profile picture And Michael who is smoking hot and gets ton of attention from the ladies Then finally Mark Kiki s best friend and also the bassist in her band Throughout the book Kiki goes on a date with ach boy and finds what she does and doesn t like about them Then it s up to you the reader to decide if Kiki should put him back on the rack or check him out Boy Shopping by Nia Stephens is definitely a book I would recommend to any teenage girl who wants to get a different perspective on dating The author is trying to tell teenage girls to choose the right man in their life and keep their yes open while they are youn.
