The Secret Life of a Teenage Siren, Wendy Toliver

I am a fan of the Simon Romantic Comedies and their powerful relaxing fluffiness. Some are stronger than others (Jennifer Echols , you are the winner!) and this one wins for being the fluffiest and also the one that asks you to suspend disbelief in the biggest way.

Basically Roxy is a plain Jane band geek until her sixteenth birthday when she magically turns into a siren (sans mermaid tail). All of a sudden she is a supermodel and if she plays her flute she can enchant any man into doing her bidding… so yeah there’s a lot of suspension of disbelief going on in this story. Eventually she comes full circle and ends up with her geeky best band geek guy friend who liked her before she was a siren and then continued to like her in spite of her siren-ity.
