Review: Love at First Fight by Maggie Dallen
Updated: Mar 25, 2019
Summary - One humiliating photo, a stupid prank, and a hashtag that goes viral. That's how my senior year goes from predictable to absurd in a heartbeat. This year is supposed to be easy. I've finally scored first chair in band, my college applications are done, and all my friends and I have to do is survive one more year of high school before our real lives can begin. Instead, I find myself in trouble with the principal, humiliated in front of the entire school, and fighting with my neighbor—AKA star quarterback, Prince Charming, and nicest guy on the planet. And that's just on the first day back at school. Trust me, it only gets worse from there. As #GeeksGoneWild trends on social media, my friends and I are the targets of an online witch hunt. But they've picked on the wrong people and retaliation is severe. As the tension escalates, it soon becomes clear that someone needs to step up and put an end to this nonsense. If that means playing nice with the quarterback, I guess that's what I have to do. Now if someone could please tell my heart that this new friendship is just for show. And the kisses...oh, the kisses. Someone please remind me that they don't mean a thing.
What I Liked - If you're a fan of Maggie Dallen, this book won't disappoint. I love a good revenge of the nerds story, where you expect the popular people get their comeuppance. Except that's not really how this book went down, wich was refreshing. The popular guy was nice from the beginning and the nerdy girl gets her moment of glory. This is another fast paced book, flying past the conflict at lightening speed. Looking for a quick easy read with a sweet hero and not too much drama, this might be a good fit.
Appropriate For - I have yet to read a book by Maggie that I wouldn't let my 7th grader read. Little swearing, no sex, kisses aren't particularly steamy. There is some underage drinking/partying at the beginning.
