    The author knows how to write about sports, and has absolutely no idea how to write about women. It's all the more abhorrent that this is supposedly written from the female point of view. I'll give some examples of how we, the female-species, apparently think: - as a teenager, Lisa allows two sixth graders to massage suntan lotion into her body. She comments that it feels nice and that they're cute. - she refers to her boobs as "ta-ta's" - speaking about eating food at a dinner: "Unfortunately, I t The author knows how to write about sports, and has absolutely no idea how to write about women.

I'll give some examples of how we, the female-species, apparently think: - as a teenager, Lisa allows two sixth graders to massage suntan lotion into her body. She comments that it feels nice and that they're cute. - she refers to her boobs as "ta-ta's" - speaking about eating food at a dinner: "Unfortunately, I think some of that is still on my hips!" - an older female character speaking to Lisa: "Four pretty girls and four handsome boys should be able to find plenty of fun things to do." - she's quite confident, but only when it comes to men: "OK, I do take care of my looks and I graduated from William & Mary, and guys laugh at my jokes. But I promise you the 'sweet' part comes and goes." - she gets let off with a warning after being pulled over for "driving while pretty" (direct quote, folks) You get the idea. But I don't think you quite get the idea with how structurally awful some of the sentences are. Observe: Even though as a farm girl from the prairies, she seemed to have little in common with her majority black teammates except mad skills with a basketball. And excessive punctuations such as this: "Where the hell is your story?!?!?" Not to mention the actual book has weird margins and a ridiculously excessive amount of exclamation points. I wish I had had the idea to keep a tally of how many I saw, but I expect it would have gotten very tiring after a while. Final point I'd like to express something on: why, if this book shows a sexually promiscuous woman who is completely vapid aside from enjoying basketball, are practically all the chapters titled after Bible sections? They have nothing to do with the story, there really doesn't seem to be any reason for it.

    I received this book from Goodreads First Reads in exchange for an honest review... Extremely disappointing. I honestly found this book revolting and rather disgusting in certain areas. It was poorly written, a very mediocre plot line, weak characters, and overall an ugly mess. I don't know if the author is male or female, but I'm assuming male because there was an extremely more hindsight on woman. It was almost the point of where I dare call it "sexist". Everything seemed to narrow down to one f I received this book from Goodreads First Reads in exchange for an honest review... Extremely disappointing. I honestly found this book revolting and rather disgusting in certain areas. It was poorly written, a very mediocre plot line, weak characters, and overall an ugly mess. I don't know if the author is male or female, but I'm assuming male because there was an extremely more hindsight on woman. It was almost the point of where I dare call it "sexist". Everything seemed to narrow down to one factor... because she was attractive. She was hard-working, intelligent (to a certain degree), confident, amusing, yet "all because she was attractive". If she didn't have that I'm-so-pretty factor, this book wouldn't exist.

    First I would like to state that I received this book through the Goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review. I would like to thank the author for giving me this opportunity and honor in being able to read this book. I had never read anything by this author before. This was a pretty good book. It was not the type of book I would normally read but it was a very nice read none the less and I am glad that I have read it. It was entertaining. The writing style of the author was well done.

    I won this book through GoodReads First Read program. I got the impression that this book was a lot of autobiographical information but written as a female character: Lisa Patterson. It is basically Lisa's story in becoming a female sportswriter in the southeast. I love sports but this was actually pretty dull stuff. Episodes were covered very briefly. Story had no action. Just a recitation of facts. Could have been from anyone's life. Not for me. I won this book through GoodReads First Read program.
