A Match Made in High School by Kristin Walker; A Match Made in High School


When a mandatory course forces Fiona to “try the knot” with super-jock Todd Harding, she’s convinced life couldn't get any worse. Until her crush is paired with her arch enemy (otherwise known as Todd’s obscenely hot, slightly sadistic girlfriend). But that’s nothing compared to her best friend’s fate – a year with the very goofy, very big Johnny Mercer.

A series of hilarious pranks leave Fiona wondering: is there something her “best friend” hasn’t told her? Could there be more to Johnny Mercer than an awesome music collection? And most intriguing, could Todd Harding have a heart beneath his pretty-boy exterior?

Perhaps it's his Shakespearean witticisms that reel Blythe in despite her better judgment . . . or maybe she just craves the thrill of the game. But as the hunt progresses, their relationship heats up. Soon their madcap mischief spirals out of control. Blythe is faced with arrest and expulsion, among other catastrophes - until Luke shows her what the Scramble (and love) is really about.

7 Clues to Winning You by Kristin Walker The First Day of September

Maybe Sarah shouldn't have taken that dare. Maybe she shouldn't have bragged that she could swim across the lake. None of that mattered now. She was drowning.

When twelve-year-old Sarah Oakley and her family visit their friends, the Harpers, at Sweetwater Lake, she doesn't hold out much hope for the vacation. She expects her brother, Will, and the two Harper boys to ignore her as usual. She expects to spend most of her time alone. She expects any adventure to happen within her imagination.

What she doesn't expect is to be the keeper of a dangerous secret and to accept a dare that might endanger her life. But soon, the lush nature of the mountains and the comforting spirit of the lake work their magic on her. After facing a capsized boat, a snake, a dying hawk, and a hurricane, she begins to earn her brother's respect, and her own. But just when she thinks her world is falling into place, everything around her starts to crumble. A friendship of the most unlikely kind just might help Sarah find her true worth. If only she can stay afloat.
