Book Review: A Match Made in High School by Kristin Walker

Rating: StarStarStar

Genre: Young Adult > Contemporary | Realistic Fiction

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.

Well, that was fun! Thank you for taking my mind off Everneath.

A Match Made in High School is kinda full of mishaps. Maybe a little juvenile but at least it was fun read. It actually reminded me of Babe in Boyland. Same light reading, garnering a few smiles from me here and there.

I think I like Todd the most. Yeah, he’s a jerk but he was interesting. I was looking forward that something’s brewing between him and Fiona…? Nah. But the relationship they had was a wonder in itself. Pretty cool, actually.

A Match Made in High School is an amusing read, even if only to divert myself from a horrible experience of a recent read.
