A Match Made In High School by Kristin Walker
Hey everyone! Sorry for the lack of posts-- I had two tests, an english paper, and a bunch of math homework all due this week! Unfortunately, I don't have an author interview today, but I should have one for next weekend! I do have a review for you guys though. It's A Match Made In High School by Kristin Walker! The description of this book is:
When the principal announces that every senior must participate in a mandatory year-long Marriage Education program, Fiona Sheehan believes that her life can't get any worse. That's until she marries her “husband”: jerky jock Todd, whose cheerleader girlfriend, Amanda, has had it in for Fiona since day one of second grade. Even worse? Amanda is paired with Fiona's long-term crush, Gabe. At least Fiona is doing better than her best friend, Marcie, who is paired up with the very quiet, very dorky, very big Johnny Mercer.
Pranks, fights, misunderstandings, and reconciliations ensue in an almost Shakespearean comedy of errors about mistaken first impressions, convoluted coupling, and hidden crushes.
When I had an interview with Kristina Springer, she answered one of the questions by saying that she would love to work with Kristin Walker because she was hilarious. I thought she meant as a person, but I guess it's both! I laughed out loud so many times throughout this book. You guys know how I always say I love sarcasm and jokes that make me laugh in books? This book definitely does that. I was laughing so much and so hard that my roommate ended up asking me what the heck I was laughing at-- it was that funny. It's also not your typical story. This book takes a lot of twists and turns that you wouldn't expect, and I loved how it ended. Kristin Walker is a very awesome and talented author and I can't wait until her next book! I should be having an interview with her soon so make sure you guys stay tuned to check that out! I absolutely recommend this book to everyone. I guarantee you will laugh at least once! Happy Reading!
