boy books

Stereotypically, girl books are pink, have a girl on the cover and FILLED with sickeningly sweet romance. Boy books, on the other hand, are darker, have blood dripping or something more creepy on the cover and there are NO girls to be found. But we all know this isn't true, right? There are books that boys AND girls love!!! Teenreads.com's “He Said/She Said” feature aims to highlight a book each month to discuss its guy and girl appeal.
Girls only like romance novels about love triangles and love at first sight. Boys only like novels that are fast-paced, action thrillers with tons of violence. Do these stereotypes sound familiar? Are they true? Our Teen Board member, Kate, talks about what she thinks makes a "girly" novel.
