Review: A Match Made in High School by Kristin Walker



Title: A Match Made in High School
Author: Kristin Walker
Release Date: February 4, 2010
Publisher: Penguin
Length: 278 pages
Source: Barnes and Noble
Format: Paperback

Summary:

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 leaves 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 intriguingly, could Todd Harding have a heart beneath his pretty-boy exterior?


Review:

This book was A Match Made in the Teen Section of Barnes and Noble. I fell in love with the very snarky, very clever, very teenager-ish Fiona Sheehan the moment I "met" her. Of all the books I've read in 2010, Fiona has the most personality and the most accurate YA voice. This book made me laugh out loud-- out loud, out loud. It was hi-freakin'-larious, as Fiona would say. I sat on my couch, giggling at the chemistry between the characters, at the pranks performed, at the witty banter, at EVERYTHING it seemed like.

Kristin Walker, you nailed it.

Examples of the awesomeness and rare form of beauty I call PERSONALITY (Fiona's, to be specific) :



Grading:
1. Characters: 20/20
2. Writing: 20/20
3. Plot: 20/20
4. Accurate YA: voice 20/20
5. Cover: 10/10

Overall Score: 100 or A+
