A Match Made in High School - Kristin Walker

Sunday, May 23, 2010
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.  

After hearing the rave reviews of this book from Kristi, I thought I needed to read this book. I picked it up and began reading, and really fell in love with the story and characters. I thought the idea of the book was genius on Kristin Walker's part, and I love the way she writes. I think we need to keep an eye on this author if this was just her first novel.

Even though I could guess who Fiona ended up with from the beginning, I was really happy that she didnt end up with the typical person most chick lit books write about. The writing was really good, and I found the chapters transitioned easily to the next. I really liked all of the characters too, all of them had distinct personalities and added a lot to the book. Sam was my favorite character - she was just too cute!

Definitely a good read and I laughed out loud so many times!

I've been wanting to read this but must admit I was hesitant and a lil skeptical. I thought it would be a little to childish for me but your review has helped...I am going to read it :D

Sounds cute! I love it when I actually laugh while reading a book. There's nothing better than that.
