Paperback, 244 pages

Why the hell can’t chicks be more like guys?

That question plagues high school senior Sam Cruz. Sam is perfectly happy being a player. He just wishes girls wouldn’t change the game from sex to relationships. It makes him look like an asshole. But when Sam’s best friend, Ally Klinger, gets dumped, she begs him to transform her into someone who can screw around then screw off. No risk of heartbreak that way. It’s Sam’s chance to create the perfect female AND cheer up his best friend. Armed with Sam’s Three Step Guide to Backseat Success, Ally gets the game better than Sam thought she would and before long, Sam has his wish: the female version of himself. Too bad it’s driving him nuts. Told from Sam’s and Ally's alternating POVs, Sam Cruz’s Infallible Guide to Getting Girls is a fast-paced romantic comedy that follows these teens as they navigate the minefield of sex, love, and friendship. 

This book contains strong language, drinking, euphemisms, and lots of “bow chicka wow wow.”--Goodreads

3 Stars
This book, although it is young-adult, should probably only be read by mature teens or an older audience. 

I really liked Ally in the beginning before her transformation. I kind of thought that she was already a kick-butt heroine but...

After her transformation, I did not quite like Ally. She became that girl in high school. Maybe it was my own personal views that made me not like this book, but the book did have some redeeming qualities to it. The dialogue (well some of it) was funny and there was a bunch of (vulgar) humor, which I found funny at first, but then it was kind of overwhelmingly vulgar that it just wasn't that funny. But the penguin that poops chocolate was pretty funny :) (FYI:The penguin was a toy penguin!)

The ending was pretty much what saved the whole book for me, since I'm a huge sucker for happy endings. But overall, the plot was pretty predictable; nothing in the book was a surprise to the reader. :/
