Since her mom died, Amy Whalen's been invisible--but not in the cool, superpower kind of way. Overlooked at school and ignored at home, Amy holds tight to her few constants: running, painting, and her long-held crush on soccer god, Chris Kent. But as senior year nears, Chris doesn't just notice her, he needs her.

Amy will agree to almost anything to be with

Overview

Since her mom died, Amy Whalen's been invisible--but not in the cool, superpower kind of way. Overlooked at school and ignored at home, Amy holds tight to her few constants: running, painting, and her long-held crush on soccer god, Chris Kent. But as senior year nears, Chris doesn't just notice her, he needs her.

Amy will agree to almost anything to be with him.

Everything is great--sort of--until Luke Parker shows up for soccer tryouts and sees through every one of Amy's defenses. When Luke decides he wants Chris's spot on the team and wouldn't sneeze at the captain's jersey either their rivalry spins out of control.

It doesn't help that Luke also wants the girl Chris kept hidden all summer: AMY.

I really, really wish there would have been a prologue or a different beginning chapter to this story because I was a little confused about Amy and Chris. Amy has been crushing on soccer sensation Chris, since fifth grade and now she's his super secret girlfriend. Well how did that happen and why? He has another public girlfriend, but it's all part of The Plan. I wanted to know how that came to be and to try and understand the reasoning behind it--why does he need her so much?  Let's face it, Chris is a total sleezy jerk! Of course, he's talented and handsome, but he's using Amy for some reason and she's completely oblivious to it. When Luke moves in, he immediately sees what's going on and tries to help Amy, but she doesn't want to be helped. I have to say it--Luke is the best part of the story! He's Mr. Manners, kind, handsome, and a wonderful friend to Amy--he can "see" her. Amy is such an interesting mess of contradictions. At times, she's very independent, confident, and strong, but at other times, she's very weak, lacks self-esteem and seems to be very needy, almost to the point of pathetic. I think she just wants to be loved. I understand that a lot of teenagers are trying to figure out who they are and are trying to emerge into competent adults, but her extremes were very frustrating. Her mom passed away years ago, her dad is distant (pretty much non-existent), and she hardly has any friends, so she's got the reasons to be the way she is. In fact, I think the rough and tough Coach cared for her more than her own dad did. I wish I could've jumped through the pages to mother her or befriend her or something--I felt so sorry for her. Although some things were irritating, I couldn't stop reading. My heartstrings were tugged on a little bit. I wanted to know what was going to happen; I cared about the characters; I wanted to see Amy come into her full potential; and I wanted things to resolve in a good way because who doesn't want and deserve a happy ending? A little part of me also wanted some revenge and pay-back. I thought the book was well-written and true to teenage feelings, angst, and growth. I wanted to spend a little more time in the ending, but all in all, I was satisfied.                      Content: mild language (especially Coach); mild romance (some innuendo, implied teen sex,  kissing). *I won a copy in a giveaway, which did not affect my opinion at all. All thoughts are my own.*

I absolutely loved this book. I laughed and at times I cried the ugly screaming cry. Lol. This is a really sweet YA story about a girl with some serious self esteem issues. Amy had to deal with a terrible loss then the loneliness that followed. She has no self respect for herself when it comes to Chris. He is a user and she makes excuses for the way he treats her. And tries to make herself invisible to everyone else. I highly recommend this book to everyone.

I remember this being an OK read, but very meh. I'd recommend it for someone who is looking for a book that they don't need to think too hard about.

It was a really good book if you are into the type of books that follow sports while focus also on teen relationships.
