The book that inspired the Disney Channel movie Zapped , starring Zendaya!

When Annabelle returns from summer camp, her life is totally different. She's moving to a new house with her mom's new boyfriend, and that means starting sixth grade at a brand-new school. Birchwood Middle School is very different from her old all-girls elementary-the boys practically run wild in the hallways. And at home, Annabelle's new puppy is taking over the house and chewing on her clothes. But the puppy came with a training manual, so Annabelle might be able to get one thing under control. Unless . . . can you train a boy the way you train a dog?

Luvd it, such and good book, it was true, hilarious and enjoyable. Good for any age!

I enjoyed this book because the connection that Annabelle made between the behavioral patterns shown by both dogs and the male species was refreshing and entertaining, and also useful for a girl like me who has 3 brothers and is usually surrounded by boys in the school and home environment.I am looking forward to treating my brothers like disobedient dogs.

I reccomend this book to any preteen looking for an entertaining, simple read. Annabelle is a sixth grade girl that has a love for summer camp. After it ends is when all the disappointment begins. Going to a new school, getting a puppy, and possibly a stepfather, is too much for her. While Annabelle learns to cope with the change in her life, she also learns something new; boys are dogs. She creates a mannual for her dog while keeping out of control boys in mind. This book captures the pure essence of middle school while adding a touch of humiliation and friendship.

This book was recommended to me and I didn't really like it. I felt like it was way to easy for me. But overall, it was a fun and entertaining book.
