St friend was kicked off the team to make a spot for FredBut there’s no denying that things are happening between the girl with the killer swing and the boy with the killer smi Ok This book Eugh I feel a little bad for what I am about to write Maybe I am unfair in judgement? You see my major critic with this book stems from the fact that I have never seen took part or am aware of anything golf related Therefore all these terms like 'par' I had to google which as you can imagine got really annoying and prevented me from getting the most out if and fully relating to this storyIll apologise in advance to all you golfers LETS BE FAIR THOUGH GOLF IS NOT THE MOST EXCITING PAST TIME IN EXISTENCE IS IT? Did any other non golfers face this issue?You see I didn't realise there was a page dedicated to describing golfing terms located within my E copy I received I mean why out it at the END? REALLY? You don't think the beginning seems like a better idea Not everyone peeks at the end you know Anyways I found this book bored me uite a lot it ALL revolved around the game of golf I mean how can your attraction stem from someone swinging a golf bat? Admiration yes love? No It all seems unrealistic to me Besides all of this when I look past the golf barrier I really did enjoy certain aspects of this book like Ryan was a really good guy He looked past his parents prejudice of people on the wrong side of the track and didn't let his friends judgement of 'Indians' stop him from noticing the very intriguing and uiet FredrickaAlso even though he hardly ever agreed with Seth his best friends behaviour he always tried to support him and be there for hi when his dads anger spiralled way past the point of control But he did let Seth manipulate him to a degree It highlighted some major teen issues such as peer pressure and stereotyping Ryan was a very neat guy He made his own judgement on people and saw them for who they were rather than what they had The writing I wouldn't say it was perfect but it was good This book didn't compel or enamour me and I didn't read it all in one sitting since sometimes it did get boring But it was an ok read and I did love the chemistry between the two leading characters I even felt sorry for Seth He was just a spoiled rich kid who thought he owned and could control whatever he had around him Plus he didn't have the best parents and therefore role models This book was a good read the ending could have been elaborated on and concluded better however

Hooked Hooked #1And go to university something no one in her family has done But Fred’s presence on the team isn’t exactly welcome especially not to rich golden boy Ryan Berenger whose be The Blurb “When Native American Fredericka ‘Fred’ Oday is invited to become the only girl on the school’s golf team she can’t say no This is an opportunity to shine win a scholarship and go to university something no one in her family has done But Fred’s presence on the team isn’t exactly welcome — especially not to rich golden boy Ryan Berenger whose best friend was kicked off the team to make a spot for FredBut there’s no denying that things are happening between the girl with the killer swing and the boy with the killer smileGET HOOKED ON A GIRL NAMED FRED”OverviewFred is an ordinary every day kind of girl but there’s just one thing wrong according to her “white” peers – she’s a Native AmericanSo when the coach at her high school approaches her to join the all boys' Golf team because of her fantastic golfing abilities she is somewhat sceptical about where exactly she will fit in after all these are all rich white boys And to make matters worse one of the team members is kicked off to make place for herWith her decades old plaid golf bag second hand clubs and tennis shoes she still manages to hold her head up high and be the best player she can as well as catch the eye of the most popular boy at schoolRyan Berenger is not your typical rich boy – on the outside perhaps – but on the inside he’s uite a nice guy who’s actually in a bit of emotional turmoil with the state of affairs at home a father who never has the time to watch him play any golf tournaments and a mother who’s freuently away due to work commitmentsSo rich boy aside it’s no wonder that Fred has managed to capture his attention – only problem is he has an eually rich girlfriend who’s in the way and an almost demented best friend who shows extreme hatred for Native Americans and tries to intimidate Fred every chance he gets Whilst Ryan wrestles with his growing feelings for his golf partner he can’t help but feel allegiance to a boy who’s been his best friend foreverWith not a lot of communication happening between Fred and Ryan and therefore their feelings for one another not being voiced it comes as no surprise that a multitude of misunderstandings will be createdMy ThoughtsIt’s been a while since I read a Young Adult novel and I’m so glad that this one found its way to my doorstepI love a story which touches on social issues that plague our society today and this one sure has it fair share from racial prejudice and gender euality or ineuality to bullying and alcohol abuseWith chapters told alternately from the point of view of both Fred and Ryan we are privy to the inner turmoil felt by these characters and I could uite easily relate to bothAs I’m sure you’ll recall from previous reviews I have written where alcohol abuse has been touched on it also played a role in my teenage years so I could therefore sympathise with the fact that Fred did not want anyone knowing where she lived as I like her was embarrassed to have friends around Thankfully though it was not my mother afflicted by the disease and I never had occasion to be embarrassed about the state of our living uarters with her always keeping a beautiful homeI could also empathise with Ryan’s inability to embrace individuality –it’s hard being a teenager and from this book we learn that peer pressure is all too real Even though we have our own opinions about things individuality is often times not yet mastered and it can become extremely difficult to get beyond that pressure and strike out by saying “this is what I want” for fear of being rejectedAlthough Golf has never been one of my favourite sports I found that whilst I now know what a “tee box” and “under par” means Liz Fichera has skilfully found a balance between the sport and the underlying issues at handI’ve given this book a 5 star rating and I wish to thank both the publisher Harleuin Teen an imprint of Harleuin Books as well as The Reading Room for providing a hard copy and affording me the opportunity to write a reviewA
