In the words of Fiona, A Match Made in High School is Hi-freakin’-larious!
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. That's until 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 dorky, very big Johnny Mercer.
Pranks, fights, misunderstandings, and reconciliations ensue in an almost Shakespearean comedy of errors about mistaken first impressions, convoluted coupling, and hidden crushes.
Kristin managed to channel the interactions of teens today with the slang and behavior used in her book brilliantly. She did a fabulous job. Readers looking for an entertaining and twisted read inside the on goings of prankster teens will get major kicks out of this laugh out loud page turner.
