Fly On the Wall

Fly on the Wall : How One Girl Saw Everything by E. Lockhart

16-year-old Gretchen Yee doesn't understand boys at all. To Gretchen, boys are a lot like aliens, and she just can't understand why they do the things they do. In desperation, she makes a very unusual wish: to be a fly on the wall in the boys' locker room...just so she could figure out what boys are all about!

And then, her wish is granted.

For an entire week, Gretchen is transformed to a fly: six legs, two antennae...and an unobstructed, uninterrupted view of boys. Are they really idiots all the time? How can they take themselves seriously, with those goofy-looking gherkins hanging around? And, are boys actually people...sort of?

Gretchen learns a lot from her weeklong experience as a fly, and her observations--funny, poignant, and truthful--will answer the questions that many readers have about the bodies, conversations, and lives of boys when girls aren't in the room.

Some strong language and sexual situations, recommended for mature teens.
