#155 - "Shut Out" by Kody Keplinger

Title: Shut Out

Author: Kody Keplinger

Book read on November 30th, 2011!

My rating: 4 of 5

Most high school sports teams have rivalries with other schools. At Hamilton High, it's a civil war: the football team versus the soccer team. And for her part, Lissa is sick of it. Her quarterback boyfriend, Randy, is always ditching her to go pick a fight with the soccer team or to prank their locker room. And on three separate occasions Randy's car has been egged while he and Lissa were inside, making out. She is done competing with a bunch of sweaty boys for her own boyfriend's attention.

Then Lissa decides to end the rivalry once and for all: She and the other players' girlfriends go on a hookup strike. The boys won't get any action from them until the football and soccer teams make peace. What they don't count on is a new sort of rivalry: an impossible girls-against-boys showdown that hinges on who will cave to their libidos first. But what Lissa never sees coming is her own sexual tension with the leader of the boys, Cash Sterling...

 My thoughts on the book:
Okay, so although I gave his book the same rating as I gave The DUFF, I think that this one was much better, so I'm already looking forward to reading Kody's next book. I really liked all the characters in this book. They were all quite realistic, with real issues that teens have. Also, they were really fun, so the book was lots of fun, it fast-paced & funny at times. Again, I enjoyed Kody's writing style. Also, I was surprised with Lissa's secret halfway through the book, I didn't expect that (although I did expect the thing that Randy did). The chemistry between Cash & Lissa was really great & in the end I was really happy for them. I recommend this book a lot!
