    BOOKENDS: Fly On The Wall
    Fly on the Wall by E. Lockhart
    audiobook read by Caitlin Greer
    To Gretchen Yee boys are alien beings -- she just can't understand them. Everyone at her arts school is working so hard to be "different" and Gretchen just feels ordinary. And when her best friend starts hanging out with the art geeks and her parents announce they're getting divorced, she feels lonely and lost. She wishes she could be a fly on the wall in the boys' locker room, so she could really start to understand them -- and finally work up the courage to talk to to Titus, her crush. And then one Saturday morning, she wakes up and she is a fly on the wall -- in the boys' locker room...!
    This is another in my attempts to find audiobooks I like and can listen to -- and it was a fun "read." Truly, who hasn't, at some point in their life, wanted to be a fly in the wall to hear and see what's going on in someone else's life? There are parts of this book that don't lend themselves to audio particularly well, but if you forget about those and don't mind the swearing (lots of f-words flying around) and the sex talk (she's a teen girl in the boys' locker room, after all), it's a pretty funny story.
