Boys, Girls and Other Hazardous Materials


By Rosalind Wiseman

Summary: Looking for a new beginning after a terrible mean girl past, Charlie Healey realizes there’s no escaping high school drama

Charlie Healey thinks Harmony Falls is the beginning of a whole new life. Middle school was brutal. But high school is Charlie’s big chance to start over and stay out of drama, except that on her first day she runs into Will, her ex–best friend, who had moved away. Now a varsity athlete and hotter than Charlie remembered, Will hangs with the crowd running the school. But Charlie doesn’t understand their power until an innocent delivery guy falls victim to a near-deadly hazing prank.

Torn between doing what’s right and her secret feelings for Will, Charlie must decide whether to turn in her very best friend or live with the guilt of knowing what he did.

Rosalind Wiseman’s first novel for young adults is a fresh, funny, and juicy read about friendship, betrayal, and how far some will go to be accepted.


My Thoughts: This is the first book by Rosalind Wiseman that I have read. I've heard both good and bad on this one. I really did enjoy it though. Yes, a little bit of it was predictable but I still enjoyed reading it. We meet Charlie who just transferred to a new school and does not know anyone. She makes a friend fast and on that same day also runs into her old friend Will. She has not seen him in 3 years! He moved away and now he is back at her new school. He is A LOT hotter than she remembers but she starts to like another guy but also feels drawn to Will. He is a varsity player now and involved in a lot of hazing rituals. Charlie is thrown into a world of secrets and she doesn't know what to do. She doesn't want to hurt Will but she also wants to tell the truth. What happens to Charlie? What happens between Charlie and Will? Read the book to find out.

Overall: I really loved this one. Its a quick fun read and is a rather light book to read. I could relate to Charlie and Will and how they had developed feelings for each other. It was such a cute read.

Cover: Really like the cover. I really want to see their faces though. haha

Sounds really cute. Predictable is good sometimes, though. It's comforting. ;]
