With all this attention, Kiki is having the time of her life. Does she really have to choose just one?

"Like This and Like That" came to be an amazing book, because the reader gets to control the outcome of the story. The characters are your typical teenagers who deal with premarital sex, underage drinking and interracial dating.

In this book you will read about the difficulties of dating or trying to find a guy who will be compatible with you. In every new chapter it talks about four different type of guys Gemma ( the main character in the book) is going out with, and figuring out if it's going to work out for her. The book starts out when Gemma was at a house party with a basketball player that she thought she knew, and experience what a jerk he came out to be , to turning to online dating and finding four different guys that maybe a match for her. I chose this book because I love how the book goes through every date she went through, and how it didn't work out.

I know the facts in the book were accurate because one of the facts it used was " Gemma will never be stuck on the dating bench again." This is true because, since she started to do online dating she came across four guys;: Drew, Dan, Ethan, and Christopher. Since she found different, new guys to date, she won't have to worry about not getting a date.

The author used many different methods of influencing audiences in the book, such as bias in the passage, "If looks is the only thing that matters to guys, maybe looks should be the only thing that matters to me. It would make everything a lot simpler." In this quote, the author is saying that guys just like girls for their looks, but to be honest most guys don't, because guys feel they're not all that good looking too or they just don't care. Next, the author uses stereotyping:" No way was her first time going to be at a party with a toasted jock who didn't seem to notice she had checked out ten minutes ago. `What's wrong with you?' Nick growled. `You're kidding, right? `Gemma gasped. `You females are crazy, you're such a tease." Basically from this quote, guys think girls are teases when they seem to be going along with it for a minute, but realize that they're not ready, so guys think that girls are teases. Another method is, over-generalization: "'Quit drooling,' Gemma said, laughing. `I'm not denying his utter, complete hotness. But you know how I feel about basketball players- they're all high on themselves.'" From this quote, all basketball players aren't about themselves but they do have that high confidence when they play a game. Lastly is association: "How about Xavier Banks? Remember him? His breath rank I felt sorry for his toothbrush." This method is going back to a past time when Gemma dated a guy who had horrible breath and it couldn't work.

This book, "Like This and Like That," isn't "cute," it is a very interesting book. The book is interactive and the readers have a chance to control the outcome of this story. Some suggestions: if you're having problems in relationships or you just don't have luck with meeting the right person, then look up Nia Stephen's books and she will surely give you that guidance in what you want to do in your relationships.

Kiki Kelvin is a drummer in the band Temporary Insanity with two of her good male friends. Her love of music is evident as the story unfolds, but she also has a major crush on her band mate, Mark. They have known each other for a while and are best buddies; however, their relationship doesn't seem to be progressing any further than friendship. BOY SHOPPING is Kiki's adventure in finding the perfect boy to take her mind off Mark.

Kiki is introduced to the online social group by one of her best girlfriends, who found her new boyfriend on the Boy Shopping site. With much coaxing, Kiki signs on and ends up with four compatible guys in her area and the fun begins. She must choose from the guy who is home schooled and knits, the quiet guy from her private school, the jock from another prep school and the guy who just wants to have fun. Who will she choose to take her mind off Mark?

The concept behind BOY SHOPPING is the reader gets to choose which guy is the right one for Kiki, with alternative endings. Readers are able to read the profiles of the potential dates and then they choose which guy's story to follow. The novel has a diverse group of characters which is helpful in expanding its appeal to young teens and encompasses teen issues such as curfews, underage drinking, false id's and sex.

The characters were developed pretty well and Stephens' ethnically diverse characters helped maintain openness to the story. The individual dates could be at times hilarious and interesting, but not absolutely perfect. Stephens also does a good job with physical descriptions allowing readers to be right in the middle of the scenes. I could appreciate Stephen's idea of readers choosing their own ending and for the audience this story is geared towards they may truly enjoy this innovative style. However, it left me with no clear ending or closure, which I can blame my age on a need for a more succinct ending. The teenage readers will most likely appreciate this story because although the characters are not typical, they deal with typical teenage issues.

"It's your chance to pick the boys that Kiki a beautiful, talented, hardworking, but dateless musician will go out with as well as how the book ends in Boy Shopping by Nia Stephens."

"Will Kiki choose Jacob the cool, mysterious guy from her school, Joshua, the lacrosse playing jock who has had a run in with the law, Lyman the very smart and talented musician who is a mama's boy, or will she pick Michael, who just wants to have fun? Maybe she'll decide to wait for Mark her best friend that doesn't see her as anything but a pal."

"Nia Stephens has created a book that not only asks for participation from its readers, but will also provide hours of fun discussions and interesting choices."

Tall and beautiful, Gemma Williams possesses mad skills on the basketball court but she is unlucky in love off the court. All the guys she agrees to date turn out to be losers. She enlists the help of her best friend, Maria who encourages her to join a hot new dating site for teens called Boy Shopping. After signing up and finding four matches, Gemma's hilarious adventures in dating begins.

The concept of LIKE THIS AND LIKE THAT is cute because the book is interactive and the reader controls the outcome of the story. With this being the second installment of the Boy Shopping series, the story does well as a standalone. The characters are your typical teenagers who deal with premarital sex, underage drinking and interracial dating. Stephen's writing style is very simplistic which will keep the attention of young readers. Adults as well as teens can easily enjoy this one.
