Pretty Tough Tuesday: Check Out this Fun Sporty Novel

Pretty Tough By: Liz Tigelaar

I love reading sporty YA books. And this one's a must read. :) 

Southern California sisters, Charlie and Krista Brown, are polar opposites. Krista is perky, popular, and pretty. While, sophomore, surfer Charlie, is the victim of a vicious freshman rumor that left her friendless and invisible.

When Charlie tries out for Krista's main sport, soccer, their worlds begin to clash as both girls learn hard lessons about themselves, boys, friends, and the strong bond of sisterhood.

I absolutely adore this book. Liz Tigelaar does an excellent job writing in both Charlie and Krista's unique points of view. While some sporty books are all about the sport, Pretty Tough throws in some major boy, coach, and best friend drama, which keeps the pages turning. Although Screwball is my favorite sporty fun book :), the Pretty Tough series is definitely a close second.
