Reviews for The Boy Trap
RatingComments
5The Boy Trap is a very smart, very funny story about what happens when two fifth grade girls, Emma and Louise, decide to prove in their science fair project that girls are superior to boys. The first thing that struck me as I read this book was how compelling it is. From the first page onward, I really couldn't put it down. The author has succeeded in weaving a story that keeps you guessing, and wanting to see what's next. She manages to lead the reader into a situation that seems to have no easy resolution, and deftly surprises us with one that is completely gratifying. Perhaps, even more impressive, is how authentic all the characters feel - children and adults alike. The main character, Emma, is quite likeable, but by no means perfect. It's both painful and amusing to watch her stumble over her faults, and eventually grow in spite of them. In fact, all of the characters are very likeable, even the ones who are technically the antagonists. I think this is mostly due to the fact that they all have revelations during the course of the story, and in one way or another better themselves. Ms. Matson writes sparkling dialogue that breathes life into every situation her characters encounter.
