Review: Hooked

Title:  Hooked
Author:  Liz Fichera

     From GoodReads, "When Native American Fredricka ‘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 Fred.

But there’s no denying that things are happening between the girl with the killer swing and the boy with the killer smile..."

      I saw the cover of this book while browsing my local book store and was immediately "hooked."  
     Although I am not a golfer and I am not Native American (two characteristics of the main character Fredricka (Fred) Oday), I could relate to this story.  I loved the fact that in order to go after what she wanted (to play golf), Fred had to go out of her comfort zone, in this case, a different school.  Of course, the boys on the golf team, did not welcome her with open arms... especially the one that got cut from the team in order to make room for Fred.  
    I loved the relationship and the dynamics between Fred and teammate Ryan Berenger.  It was fun to see what would develop between the two, who were completely opposite.  I also enjoyed watching Ryan morph into a better human being because of the influence of Fred.  
    The family dynamics of the Oday family were interesting to read about as well because they were so very different from my own.  Not every family is perfect, but it was refreshing to see a book where the main character had a very strong relationship to at least one of her parents and I really liked how connected Fred and her father were.
     I found myself smiling at many things in this book.  The only thing that bothered me was how incredibly mean many of Ryan's friends were and the fact that he didn't seem to notice it until he met Fred.  Maybe that was due to the fact that he was often this way as well and didn't seem to care until she came into his life and then he strived for something better.

  7. Here's some illustrious, ingenious, incisive ‘Quid-Pro-Quo’ scenarios:

    High, girl!
    While I realize my penname is quite morbid, yet,
    you shall find in our 24 blogs a gobba (subliminal) moxie
    which has taken this mortal sinner yeeeeers to compile:
    I lay it ALL out for you, dear - neet, packaged, concise.

    Nevertheless, wouldn’t ya love an endless eternity
    of aplomBombs falling on thy indelible cranium?
    An XtraXcitinXpose with no
    zooillogical-expiration-date,
    with an IQ much higher than K2,
    and an extraordinarily, sawcy, rowdy victory??
    Here’s what the exquisite, prolific GODy sed
    (with an excellent bullshot dectector):

    “Faith, hope, and love,
    the greatest of these is love -
    jump into faith...
    and you'll see with love”
    Doesn’t matter if you don’t believe (what I write);
    God believes in you.

    Meet me Upstairs, girl, where the Son never goes down
    from a passionate, prolific iconoclasm where you’ll find
    astronomically prodigious,
    immeasurably extensive,
    monumentally tremendous,
    stupendously substantial,
    infinitely irresistible,
    (XnonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsX… )
    deluxe-HTTP [<- pi] opportunities for excitement BTW.

    Do it. Do the deed, dude. Sign into the Big House.
    Viva/Christos/Rei!!

  9. Theo chia sẻ của những bạn du học sinh đang đi du học Nhật Bản thi làm nhân viên chạy bàn là cơ hội rất tốt để các bạn cải thiện trình độ nghe nói tiếng Nhật của mình. Bởi đặc thù công việc đòi hỏi phải giao tiếp nhiều với khách hàng, ghi nhớ nhiều món ăn có trong thực đơn nhà hàng.
    Công việc làm thêm khi đi du học Nhật Bản vừa học vừa làm có rất nhiều. Điều quan trọng các bạn cần phải biết phân bổ thời gian hợp lý giữa việc học và việc đi làm. Tiếp đó là chi tiêu có kế hoạch. Được như vậy chắc chắn các bạn sẽ có đủ tiền trang trải chi phí sinh hoạt cũng như học phí của mình mà không cần người nhà bên Việt Nam hỗ trợ.

    Việc xin visa du học nhật bản trong những năm gần đây đã thay đổi rất nhiều, tạo điều kiện thuận lợi hơn cho các bạn trẻ có ước mơ chinh phục đỉnh cao tri thức tại đất nước này.
