Review Repost: A Match Made in High School by Kristin Walker!

Since, Kristin Walker will be my guest of honor this week on Lauren's Crammed Bookshelf. I thought I would repost my original review of A Match Made in High School. :) Be sure to come back tomorrow for my interview with Kristin and on Friday for a surprise. 
~~~

Summary:

CONGRATULATIONS!
YOUR SCHOOL HAS INVITED YOU TO PARTICIPATE IN
A REVOLUTIONARY MISGUIDED COURSE CALLED
TRYING THE KNOT!

When a mandatory course forces Fiona to “try the knot” with super-jock Todd Harding, she’s convinced life couldn't get any worse. Until her crush is paired with her arch enemy (otherwise known as Todd’s obscenely hot, slightly sadistic girlfriend). But that’s nothing compared to her best friend’s fate – a year with the very goofy, very big Johnny Mercer.


A series of hilarious pranks leave Fiona wondering: is there something her “best friend” hasn’t told her? Could there be more to Johnny Mercer than an awesome music collection? And most intriguing, could Todd Harding have a heart beneath his pretty-boy exterior?


Review:

A Match Made In High School was one of the most wickedly hilarious books of the year!

From page one, you are thrown into Fiona's grueling senior year. Fiona is a character that you are going to love, because of her tell it as it comes attitude to her comical side which has you forever laughing. Tod and Johnny are the exact same way, making the characters in this book a key part to it's greatness.

The plot was unique, because really have you ever read a teen book dealing with mandatory Marriage Education program? Yeah, I didn't think so. I loved different jokes and pranks Kristin added in this, ones that you wouldn't normally have seen if the Marriage Education program wasn't present. Also, there were constantly different revelations thrown at you, making this a fast and fun read.

Overall, Kristin is a yet another great add to the YA market, I look forward to reading more by her in the future.

I suggest A Match Made In High School to fans of Meg Cabot and Susane Colasanti or teens just looking for a cute and funny romance comedy.

Grade: A+


A Match Made in High School is now out!

  8. Great review. I'd love to read this myself! The plot of having to be "married" to someone in high school is classic. I can't believe someone hasn't thought of this before! I didn't know they did this in high school. I've heard of egg or flour "babies," but not marriage.
