Grade: 2.8 stars out of 5
Trisha loves soccer and when the chance arises to join the varsity squad as a freshmen comes up, she’s going to spend as much time as possible to practice. That’s where Graham comes in. Recently transferred Graham is also a huge soccer fan and player and he wants to hone his skills to beat another player on the male varsity soccer team for center right. Graham and Trisha agree on a practice schedule where soccer balls aren’t the things that moving. [that last sentence was horrible, I know.]The Boyfriend Game is small—150 pages with big font and big spacing. It’s a predictable chick-lit, feel good teen novel that won’t impress any reader, but will definitely bring out that smile. It’s that end of the day, sink back into the chair cozy, heart warming read. There is no deep anguish or emotional drive that neither makes The Boyfriend Game memorable nor exceptional.
The Boyfriend Game is fast-paced with Trisha and Graham falling head over heels much faster than I wanted. The secondary characters provide that extra level of entertaining, but failed to do much more.
In all, this is a quick 1 hour read, or less, that uplifts the mood.
