I rested the ball on my hip and walked back toward the equipment shed. In the dark.
Alone. With a boy.
I would be completely freaking out over varsity soccer tryouts if it weren’t for the new student, Graham, who’s helping me practice. He has the most amazing green eyes, curly brown hair, and perfect legs. Plus, we have lots in common, since all we both care about is soccer! Well, that’s all he cares about. But my heart beats so fast when we’re on the field together . . . and I don’t think it’s just from all the running around.
This book starts off with Trisha playing soccer with her friends. The coach makes an announcement that he is moving some of the students to the varsity team. Trisha is very excited because she eats, sleeps, and breathes soccer. She decides to put extra time into practicing soccer while her friends focus on teen life off the field. She meets Graham on the soccer field after practice and he agrees to practice with her. Slowly, Trisha realizes her feelings grow for Graham and she needs to decide if she should tell him or not.
This was a typical teen romance book. High school, friends, girl meets boy, finds friend in boy, falls for boy. It was a sweet read that leaves you several times with the Awww feeling. It is a quick read that you could sit down and easily finish it within a day or less.
Overall a cute book. Would make a great book for a young adult or an adult looking for a quick read.
Perfect For Rainy Days From the Library!
