My thoughts on 'GIRL MEETS BOY' by Kelly Milner Halls

Girl Meets Boy: Because There Are Two Sides to Every StoryGirl Meets Boy: Because There Are Two Sides to Every Story by Kelly Milner Halls

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I won this book in a giveaway and then got a copy for review from Chronicle books.

I was very excited to read this because it sounded so interesting...two sides to the same story. A boys and a girls view. Aren't there always two sides to every story?

The book has 6 stories in it or 12, depending on how you look at, all with two sides...Ha! So one male and one female author. And some great authors at that.

I have to say that the stories were rather interesting to read. They each dealt with something different and I really liked that. I also really liked that they each dealt with pretty serious issues.

What I was sort of disappointed in is that I was expecting the stories to include both the female and the male character in some sort of conflict/dispute and that each story told the point of view about the conflict/dispute from each of their eyes. But it wasn't like that at all. One story talked about that persons life at a certain time-whether it was the boy or the girl and then the other side would talk about their life at the same time often overlapping but not always.

I would have found it much more interesting if it would have been written like that. Now someone will have to write a book like that. A disagreement/conflict, etc from the eyes of both parties involved.
