In this humorous satire of typical high school drama, seventeen-year-old Parker Collins learned early in life to trust no one, including her own family. She lived a desolated life, unfazed by the lack of social interaction. But when she signs on as the photographer for her school's newspaper, her social skills and trust are put to the test.
Parker's photographic skills and keen eye doesn't go unnoticed by her schoolmates or popular quarterback, Trent Cummins. And to the dismay of every girl vying for his attention in hopes of becoming his homecoming queen, Trent's attention is fixed solely on Parker. But Parker despises Trent, especially after he dumped her sister for her arch nemesis and newspaper editor, Casey Whitmore.
When an illness lands Parker in the hospital, she begins receiving mysterious notes. And not every love letter stuffed in her locker is from her secret admirer. Some are hate letters from Trent groupies.
After her locker is defaced, Parker sets a trap to catch the culprit in the act. But she gets more than just incriminating evidence; she also learns who her secret admirer is, which complicates her life even more. Now she must make a painstaking decision to either give up her passion for photography and go back to her mundane life, or take action and gain back control. Her decision changes not only her life, but everyone around her; including her family's.

Fantasy Football is a hilarious Young Adult short read! I truly loved this book! Parker has this awesome "I won't take shit" attitude. She's had it somewhat hard the last few years, with her father passing away, and her mother not really being the greatest mom in the world, and to top it all off girls at school treat her really badly. So Parker gets this attitude and decides she's not going to put up with their crap, and she dishes out as much as she gets. I really loved it when the three jocks started hanging out with Parker, and her best friend. It was really cool to see how they formed a new group together. Also in the end I love who Parker gets to be with, but I won't ruin that by mentioning more however it wasn't who I had originally thought it would be. I would like to read more about Parker and her friends, but I'm not sure if the book continues to second one or not, I will be trying to find out. The ending left it somewhat open, like maybe there could be more, or maybe not. Overall this book is a 4 out of 5 Stars!!
