I believe that I won this book from somewhere, but I am not too sure. One day, it was just sitting on my bookshelf and I glanced at it, thinking "why not?" One thing I should have told myself would be to wait a few years, because the ideas behind it were a bit too much for a younger me. But now, I am a bit used to such, and I understand the bigger picture in the book a little better. The relationships in this book are pretty vivid, and probably realistic in many scenarios, even though I don't know personally. The whole idea of a bunch of girls bonding over one thing, even though they are mostly different, was pretty cool. 5/5 Stars

This book was amazing! The only bad thing was that it was a bit predictable...

At first I thought this book would be really silly, but it actually raises some interesting questions about sex that it's good for teens to think about. Of course, there are the common annoying teen romance attributes: jerk boyfriend, hot unattainable guy, stupid misunderstandings for drama. When will I get a teen romance without those things in it? But, overall, this was an engaging read that made me think.

I love this book so much, it is so well written. I just love the ending so much. Kody Keplinger has a true talent for writing i hope she writes annother book in 2013

I think that this author has a very good point of veiw with how she wrote this book. I mean, afterall, she was around 17 when she wrote her first book. So she might have been in the same experiences or just pictured it in her head. Either way, she is a very talented autor and this book will NEVER be forgoten!

This is one of the best book that I've ever read!!!! I read the hole book in one day! It was such a page turner, I couldn't put in down. Kody Keplinger is an amazing author. Her third book is out; A Midsummer's Nightmare. Seems really good!! <3 :D

I really enjoyed this book! The theme is completely original, and the characters are great. Lissa is strong-willed and has good morals, which I really appreciate. I also like that this author is pretty young (she wrote her first book at the age of 17), so she understands what a real high school and teenagers are like. I would recommend this if you want a good, funny, original, easy book to read. I would also recommend this if you liked Kody Keplinger's first book, The Duff.

Lissa is sick and tired of coming second in her boyfriend's life to the rivalry between the football and soccer teams, so she decides to do something about it. In a scheme drawn from "Lysistrata," she brings the soccer and football girlfriends together in a "sex strike" -- no nookie until the warring teams make peace.
