Synopsis: Most high school sports teams have rivalries with other schools. At Hamilton High, it's a civil war: the football team versus the soccer team. And for her part,Lissa is sick of it. Her quarterback boyfriend, Randy, is always ditching her to go pick a fight with the soccer team or to prank their locker room. And on three separate occasions Randy's car has been egged while he and Lissa were inside, making out. She is done competing with a bunch of sweaty boys for her own boyfriend's attention

Then Lissa decides to end the rivalry once and for all: She and the other players' girlfriends go on a hookup strike. The boys won't get any action from them until the football and soccer teams make peace. What they don't count on is a new sort of rivalry: an impossible girls-against-boys showdown that hinges on who will cave to their libidos first. But what Lissa never sees coming is her own sexual tension with the leader of the boys, Cash Sterling...
My Review
Kody Keplinger does it again! I loved The Duff by her and I couldn't wait for this one. Keplinger's writing is so engaging and the plots are so funny and awesome that her books are amazing.
I love Kody Keplinger's books because she comes up with great ideas and excecutes them really well. A rivalry between teams at the same school? A sex strike by the girls to get it to stop? Genius! The book also takes a look at how different people will react to things. Girls wanted the rivalry to stop while the boys fought, even though they didn't know why they were fighting in the first place.
Lissa and all the other characters were superb. Lissa is a leader, which is a good thing considering she was leading the girls. But she also didn't have the "I'm always right and you can't tell me otherwise" attitude that some leaders in books have. Keplinger always has enjoyable characters to read about, and this is no different. I loved Cash and Chloe and everybody else!
There is nothing more I really need to say for Keplinger's writing style. She does great with ideas, characters, and everything else. I enjoy her books very much!
