'I've made a decision...I've-decided-I-don't-want-to-go-out-with-you-anymore. What is it with these girl-type persons? One minute they dig you, the next they ditch you! Young, free and single once again, our young hero realises that what he needs is a bit more bish-bash-bosh! We're thinking lean and mean, brave and bold - we're talking winner and all-round attractive kinda guy. But some things are always meant to try us, like sarcastic ex-girlfriends, embarrassing best mates, dads on the look out for male-bonding opportunities and anything involving a sports field. Will life ever be simple and will girls ever make any sense?

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6-9–Following the trend of humorous self-confessional journalesque fiction à la Bridget Jones and Georgia Nicholson, Allen adds a tepid romp with a male protagonist to the collection. Freshly dumped by his girlfriend, who urges him to get some "bish bash bosh" (self-confidence and sex appeal), the teen heads first to a trendy hair salon. When Baz's scissors fail to deliver the goods, he sets off down other avenues to obtain his elusive but oh-so-important goal. His friends and parents are no help in this quest and seem to thwart him at every turn–from displaying indifference to embarrassing the poor lad. Filled with amusing setups for scenes, this British import never quite reaches the humor level of others in this genre. Though the male voice does add a different twist, the characters do not have the bish bash bosh needed to send the narrative to the laugh-out-loud funny level it seeks. Although some moments stand out–the hair salon scene, the A-list crowd's party–the protagonist simply lacks the appeal and personality to make him an instant winner. A glossary assists readers with the British slang and terminology.–Elaine Baran Black, Gwinnett County Public Library, Lawrenceville, GA
