A Match Made In High School (Repost)

Title: A Match Made In High School
Author:  Kristin Walker
Publisher:  Razorbill
Release Date:  February 4, 2010
Received From:  Around the World Tours

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. Then 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 mysterious Johnny Mercer. Pranks, fights, misunderstandings, and reconciliations ensue in an almost Shakespearean comedy of errors about mistaken first impressions, convoluted coupling, and hidden crushes.

Oh my gosh this book was hilarious! Warning don't read in public or everyone will think you are insane. The banter that goes on in between Fiona and Todd, is so funny.

Besides that this book was really good, the characters were all very different and had their own distinct personalities, the plot was interesting while somewhat predictable, there were some parts that I was definitely not expecting. I really appreciated the message that was portrayed in this book, while not being too pushy.

Again this book was hilarious and dealt with some real life issues that really make the story relate-able, I mean who hasn't been stuck with an unwanted project partner? This is a great Debut and I cannot wait for more from this talented author! And the cover is beautiful!
