After a long day of snowboarding today, I've decided to review a short novel that is perfect for sitting by the fire. Fast Boys & Smart Girls by Stephie Davis is perfect for this situation, it's short and sweet. I really enjoyed reading it when I was in middle school and I still enjoy it now, there were elements in this book that were funny and romantic and so much more. Plus the book is really small it might even fit in your pockets! (okay not that small but it'd be a close one)
So here it is the synopsis(from Stephie Davis):
ON YOUR MARK
Natalie Page is overlooked and unappreciated.
Yeah, sure, she can run fast.
Yeah, sure, all the boys love her...as a buddy.
Yeah, she has plans every weekend night...with her friends and their boyfriends. GET SET
It's time for the world to sit up and take notice. When Natalie makes the varsity cross country team, it seems like the fast track to being cool. The popular girls notice her, the hunky captain of the boys team is giving her rides home. Natalie Page is off and running.
Then she starts to fail geometry. She has to get a tutor: a very annoying boy who thinks sports is for idiots. A very smart boy who thinks she's stupid. A very cute boy who already has a girlfriend and has no interest in her. A boy she told her parents she was dating.
Natalie Page can run. Now she has to decide how to finish.
