    Pretty good.

    The book was fairly good. Had a good time reading it. It really gets into the emotional stress of two very different issues. Being very smart with no real friends while trying hard to live down a horrible bullying incedent, IE. Adonis; and being an insperational and succesful athlete while struggling with accademics that could end your reputation all the while being infatuated with someone that is your complete opposite, IE. Autumn. In my opinion, the book seemed incomplete. The way they left off gave no real indication if things are going to get better or not. Aside from that, though, the book was very entertaining indeed and was well worth the read.

    Flake once again scores a hit with this book about best friends,

    Flake once again scores a hit with this book about best friends, possible romance, standing up for yourself (both literally and figuratively).  Autumn is a star wrestler but she can't read.  Adonis is in a wheelchair and despite warnings from her BFF, Autumn likes the guy. A lot.  And she demonstrates her feelings in ways that embarass Adonis.  Autumn's grades drop so low that she is no longer allowed to wrestle.  She spends time in the library to be closer to Adonis but still he pushes her away.  
    Overall, I liked the story.  Autumn struggles with academics, has supportive teachers and parents, and realizes that her BFF sometimes cheats to get what she wants.  It was troubling to read about her continued efforts to become Adonis' girlfriend when he continually verbally pushed her away.  But that is the way of some teens--to keep trying despite overwhelming odds against them.  The struggle Adonis has with doing the right thing is spot-on realistic.  One bit concern is the cover photo.  The model needs a bit more meat on her bones to look like a wrestler of the caliber Autumn is written to be.
