Week 50 Review: Shut Out

From Goodreads:
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 Review:
This was a really great book! I loved how she went through this whole thing, where she started it to stop the feud for her and her boyfriend, but then by the end of it, has fallen in love with another guy. It's pretty funny!

So the idea that it's the football team vs. the soccer team, at the same school, instead of at different schools, kinda sucks. If it wasn't against another team at the same school, then there wouldn't have been much of a story, because the girls wouldn't care as much. But at the same school, they do!

Reading about this strike, it was so hilarious! What they did to make the guys want to finish first the feud, and then the strike, was just so spectacular! And then the counter moves that the guys did, it was just so funny to read!

I think it ended in such a great place! They had the battles, both sides fought valiantly, and in the end, they got what they wanted, with the in-fighting between the two teams done, and the strike ended, and things were all good! That was really great!

I enjoyed reading this book so much, it was light and fun, and just hilarious!
