A Match Made in High School Review

Hope y'all is having a great Wednesday! I really like the summary for this book, so I'm going to use it!

Title: A Match Made in High School

Author: Kristin Walker

Rating: 4 stars

When the principal announces that every senior must participate in a mandatory year-long Marriage Education program, Fiona Sheehan “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.

Review: This book was hilarious! It made me laugh out loud so many times and the dialogue was the best!

Fiona was an interesting character, but I didn't like her. While she could be nice one day, she thought the world revolved around her. But thankfully she developed and grew during the story and became much, much more likable! The supporting characters like Todd, who was hilarious and I liked him a lot! I also liked Johnny and Marcie, because, well, they were super good friends as well as so funny.

The very idea of a High School having a mock marriage between two students is so ridiculous. But Walker pulled it off and kept the mood light almost always, and made her readers laugh out loud with joy and pleasure. The things the students in the marriage program had to do....oh so funny!

This is a very nice debut that made me laugh a ton! Can't wait to see what the author writes next!
