    In her diary, Mallory details how she feels when she finds out that Jake, a cute fifth grader (she's in fourth) likes her. Her friends are all really excited, but when Jake calls to talk to her, he more frequently discusses ball games with her brother Max. When she accidentally accepts an invitation to Jake's party when she has already accepted an invitation to her friend April's party, she's not quite sure what she should do. She'd rather go to April's, but her friends pressure her to go to Jak In her diary, Mallory details how she feels when she finds out that Jake, a cute fifth grader (she's in fourth) likes her. Her friends are all really excited, but when Jake calls to talk to her, he more frequently discusses ball games with her brother Max. When she accidentally accepts an invitation to Jake's party when she has already accepted an invitation to her friend April's party, she's not quite sure what she should do. She'd rather go to April's, but her friends pressure her to go to Jake's. She lies to April, which catches up with her later. Mallory realizes that she needs to do what she feels is right, and not necessarily what her friends think will be cool. Strengths: This was rather painful to read, because it sounds very much like my diary from 1975! (Hi, Shaun!) Pitch perfect take on how younger students feel about boys, and dating, and all manner of things. The Notebook Novel format will make it very popular as well. There is a whole series of these which would be great for elementary school. Weaknesses: Too young for my students. By 6th grade, the girls are usually interested in any boys that are interested in them, at least for a week or so.

    In Oh Boy, Mallory, Mallory McDonald starts writing in a diary after she learns through the school grapevine that an older boy has a crush on her. This news is both exciting and bewildering, and Mallory turns to her new diary to help her sort out her feelings and decide what to do. As usual, her decisions are not completely well thought-out, and she winds up owing quite a few apologies, but her heart is in the right place, and she learns yet another valuable lesson about growing up. I love the Ma In Oh Boy, Mallory, Mallory McDonald starts writing in a diary after she learns through the school grapevine that an older boy has a crush on her. This news is both exciting and bewildering, and Mallory turns to her new diary to help her sort out her feelings and decide what to do. As usual, her decisions are not completely well thought-out, and she winds up owing quite a few apologies, but her heart is in the right place, and she learns yet another valuable lesson about growing up. I love the Mallory books, so I hate to say that this one disappointed me, but it did a little bit. Mainly I’m confused as to why we once again have to revisit the issue of boys and crushes, when just two books ago, in Mallory's Guide to Boys, Brothers, Dads, and Dogs, Mallory determined she wasn’t ready to be interested in boys yet. I agree that the subject matter is interesting to girls in the book’s target audience, and I loved reading Mallory’s secret diary, but it just felt very inconsistent to me, as though I’d missed something in the last couple of books. Another issue is Mary Anne’s personality. In the past, she has always been a reliable and level-headed best friend, but in this book she does nothing but egg Mallory on, and encourage her to start a relationship with this boy who supposedly likes her. Half of the mistakes Mallory makes in this book happen at Mary Anne’s insistence, which seemed completely out of character for her. I feel like this series is trying to remain relevant as Mallory ages, which is important, because ten-year-olds have different concerns than eight-year-olds, and it makes sense that Mallory’s interests will change as she grows up. I like the fact that Mallory is getting older and that she turns to a diary to say things she can’t say to anyone else. I kept a journal when I was younger, and I can remember exactly how it felt to sit in my bedroom writing furiously about my first crush. I just hope the Mallory series won’t become permanently obsessed with boys. There is lots more to being a girl than pining away for boys, and I like the series best when it focuses on a variety of life experiences and lessons.

    This novel seemed to be more of a cautionary tale: always listen to your heart, not what others say. Mallory is feeling the waters of her age, and when she hears a boy has a crush on her she must decide if she feels the same. But what if she doesn't? By listening to her friends, she finds herself in hot water - and almost a friend short. Told with honesty, humor, and through illustrations, Mallory's Guide will enthrall younger readers with her fresh, fitting voice. She is a heroine to keep on the This novel seemed to be more of a cautionary tale: always listen to your heart, not what others say. Mallory is feeling the waters of her age, and when she hears a boy has a crush on her she must decide if she feels the same. But what if she doesn't? By listening to her friends, she finds herself in hot water - and almost a friend short. Told with honesty, humor, and through illustrations, Mallory's Guide will enthrall younger readers with her fresh, fitting voice. She is a heroine to keep on the reading shelf for young girls. I read a review where someone complained that we just dealt with this issue a couple of books back, and this is true; however, Mallory is growing up, and lessons are not always learned. In the previous book she was working through how to handle having a crush. With this novel, she is working through how to handle her friends. I feel this one is not really about boys as much as staying true to your own feelings instead of giving in to peer pressure.

    Good readalike series for the Dork Diaries fans. Written in a journal/diary format (think Diary of a Wimpy Kid) these books features doodles and diary entries. The reading level is simpler than the Dork Diaries series so this would be a good series to recommend to the younger set interested in those books and also the younger Lauren Myracle fan set. Fast read I'd recommend for girls in middle grades (3-5). Good readalike series for the Dork Diaries fans.

    Wow. This was not a book, it was a diary. Mallory wrote about her everyday feelings. My little sister recommended this book, begging me that I should read it. After I read it, I realized I liked it. This series had like 30 some books, and I only read two. I will probably keep it that way.

    This book is really just something you could read if you're feeling in a good mood. This is kind of like dork diaries so if you like that you should read this book. This series has not only 1 book but so many reading those were fun too. I read this book series about 2 times now and I still love it.
