In this poignant and hilarious novel, Rachael Allen brilliantly explores the nuances of high school hierarchies, the traumas sustained on the path to finding true love, and the joy of discovering a friend where you least expect.
Don’t get mad, get even!
In the small town of Ranburne, high school football rules and the players are treated like kings. How they treat the girls they go to school with? That’s a completely different story. Liv, Peyton, Melanie Jane, and Ana each have their own reason for wanting to teach the team a lesson—but it’s only when circumstances bring them together that they come up with the plan to steal the one thing the boys hold sacred. All they have to do is beat them at their own game.
Brimming with sharp observations and pitch-perfect teen voices, fans of Jenny Han and Sarah Mlynowski are sure to fall head-over-heels for this sharp tale—by the author of 17 First Kisses—about the unexpected roads that can lead you to finding yourself.
Guest Post: 10 Things We Don't Know about Rachael:
- I used to make scavenger hunt dare lists in college for my friends’ 21st birthdays and bachelorette parties. I can’t tell you which dares in the book we field-tested, but I can tell you we definitely didn’t do any of the mean ones and the worm is much harder than it looks.
- I wanted to be a dolphin trainer when I was little.
- I can’t whistle, and I’m super jealous of anyone who can.
- I don’t like M&M’s because they smell funny. My little brother would always crunch them up in his mouth and blow M&M breath on me. GROSS.
- I played flag football all through grad school and college. I played Cornerback, and one time I caught a clutch interception against Zeta in the playoffs, and we won the sorority championships that year. It’s kind of like I’m Deion Sanders.
- Like Peyton, I also sing in the shower loudly and off-key.
- Like Melanie Jane, I also have Cherokee ancestry.
- Like Ana, I’m a rabid Game of Thrones fan and I have a giant white dog (named Thor, not Falkor).
- Like Liv, I do enjoy a good tacklehug and get really excited over ice cream and a secret rendezvous.
- My best friends and I are as close as the girls in THE REVENGE PLAYBOOK, and I’m spending the weekend with one of them right now, which means: eating ALL the fancy cheese, dancing around her kitchen to the Backstreet Boys, taking a no make up selfie and sending it to another friend from college (that’s right - we’re no make up close), and talking about all the big life things until we laugh and cry.
