Title: Cinderella In Cleats
Author: Carly Syms
Rating: 3 Shooting Stars

It started just like any other Saturday: Whitney, her best friend, Jason, and their fathers tossed an old football around in the park. But when her dad dies of a heart attack, Whitney doesn't realize her passion for the sport and her friendship with Jason will never be the same.

Two years later, Whitney's ready to begin the long journey of re-discovering her love for football, encountering a sexist coach, an unethical but irresistible opponent, a mustard yellow T-shirt, and Jason along the way.

How many boys, romance, and hits on the field can Whitney handle before it becomes too much and she's forced to throw in the towel on her dreams?

Cinderella In Cleats was only okay. It was a very short read, with a unique plot. I love stories with the girl playing football, even though I've never seen or heard of a girl playing I still think its cool to read a novel about it. I enjoyed all of the football aspect of this book, it was very well written and very unique. However the young adult drama seemed seriously extreme even for a young adult book. There was one character in the book that I think didn't make very much sense, and he seemed to have a major role at first, then he just dwindled away without much explanation, so I felt like that character didn't need to be in the story. The ending also seemed very abrupt, and fast. I did enjoy the writing, and most of the characters. So for a short read the book was just okay.
