Pretty Tough

Hey guys! I thought I'd try out a new and quicker way of book reviews today! Tell me how you like the format or if you would rather have me do the normal way.

TITLE: Pretty Tough

AUTHOR:  Liz Tigelaar

: Two high school sisters who are virtually enemies must work together on the soccer team. The younger sister Charlie, a surfer and tomboy, costs Krista, the older sister and popular bossy girl, her place as the senior team captain and the team pays for their awful cooperation on the field. Their new coach tells them to pick it up or they're both off the team. But can both girls learn to become friends in time for the team to start winning?

GOOD STUFF: Heartfelt, gripping, inspirational, appreciating your family while they're still around, celebrating sisterhood

BAD STUFF: there are a some mild, but very inappropriate parts that you need to watch out for, some language

RATING (out of ten): 8.5 because over all the parts that I disapproved of, it had a great lesson in the end and was an enjoyable read for me

RECOMMENDED READERS: depending on who you are as a reader, I would say 
8th - 11th grades would be able to read this and
understand all the themes

Hello there! Thanks so much for dropping by my little corner of the blogosphere. I'd really appreciate if you could give me a follow as well *hint, hint* These "about-me's" are literally the hardest things to write, but I'll have a go at it. You can call me July, or really whatever else floats your boat. I live in a very culturally proud little town that borders beautiful beaches, giving us fun for both summer and winter such as swimming, tanning, boating, skiing, ice-fishing, ice-berg walking, and gorgeous sunsets on the beach year-round. I hope to make it through high school and head off to college for, well, I don't know yet, but whatever it is, it'll be something I love. Robotics, books, movies, and music of all genres are kinda my thing. I would basically consider myself to be one of those stereotypical girls who fall desperately in love with fictional boys... I have a strange obsession with tea drunken from cute elephant mugs. So grab a cuppa and strap yourselves in for some brilliant stuff coming soon!
