A Match Made in High School by Kristin Walker
4 February 2010 | Razorbill
When the principal announces that every senior must participate in a mandatory year-long Marriage Education program, Fiona Sheehan believes that her life can't get any worse. Then she marries her 'husband' : jerky jock Todd, whose cheerleader girlfriend, Amanda, has had it in for Fiona since day one of second grade. Even worse? Amanda is paired with Fiona's long-term crush, Gabe. At least Fiona is doing better than her best friend, Marcie, who is paired up with the very quiet, very mysterious Johnny Mercer.
Pranks, fights, misunderstandings, and reconciliations ensue in an almost Shakespearean comedy of errors about mistaken first impressions, convoluted coupling, and hidden crushes.
I've always liked the idea of the assignment put upon many teens in high schools today to look after a realistic electronic baby doll, but unfortunately my school never participated in this activity; A Match Made in High School takes this idea and pushes the envelope a little further with marriage being put upon senior students for an entire year. If this circumstance happened in real life, it would be a little crazy but within the limits of a teen fiction novel it seems like a fantastic read and I can't wait to get my hands on it!
