Anatomy of a Boyfriend by Daria Snadowsky

Dominique Baylor knows a lot about human anatomy. Not from experience, mind you, but she wants to be a doctor and has perused Gray's Anatomy many times. There's just no one at school that she really likes. Until she meets Wes, a track-star from her best friend's public school. They become friends quickly and soon Dom realizes that she might be in love....Anatomy of a Boyfriend teaches us that first love can be scary, fun, and all together heartbreaking, making it one of life's most important journeys.
I loved this book! It was a cute love story, but it was real. It wasn't a fluffy romantic book, but a book that actually showed the flaws and woes of love. Dominique was a great character: she was smart and funny and naive like most girls her age. And the best part was that she grew and developed as the story progessed. The book contained some inappropiate material, but it made the story better because it was an honest portrayal of teenage relationships. My only qualm is that the book should be longer, so the reader has more to enjoy! All in all, if you're looking for a romantic, yet truthful, story with a very real protagonist, then Anatomy of a Boyfriend is for you. And if this review doesn't make you want to read the book, then the cover definitely should!

8 out of 10.

A big thank you to Daria Snadowsky for getting me a copy of the book.
