Description

I rested the ball on my hip and walked back toward the equipment shed. In the dark.

Alone. With a boy.

I would be completely freaking out over varsity soccer tryouts if it weren't for the new student, Graham, who's helping me practice. He has the most amazing green eyes, curly brown hair, and perfect legs. Plus, we have lots in common, since all we both care about is soccer! Well, that's all he cares about. But my heart beats so fast when we're on the field together . . . and I don't think it's just from all the running around.

Our customer reviews

Trisha is focused on soccer. Her two best friends, Sara and Beth, also play soccer, but they\'d rather be hanging out at Pop\'s flirting with the boys. When the JV Soccer coach announces that two of the players will be bumping up to Varsity, Trisha is overjoyed to hear she\'s on the short list for consideration. Sara is by far the best player, but she isn\'t nearly as excited as Trisha. So while Sara and Beth head off to Pop\'s, Trisha decides she\'s going to put in extra practice time. When she heads over to the other field, she finds a lone (cute) boy practicing, as well. Trisha has never seen him before, and he\'s good! He introduces himself as Graham, a new student. He invites Trisha to practice with him, and the two get serious. They push each other harder and soon they are both aching and drenched in sweat. They decide to continue practicing together each afternoon and Graham is just as determined to help Trisha reach Varsity status. But it doesn\'t help Trisha when her two friends notice Graham and start telling Trisha how hot he is. Trisha isn\'t into boys yet, and Graham can\'t be bothered with girly girls. But when Sara and Beth keep on about Graham, Trisha slowly starts to realize that she gets strange feelings when she\'s around him. When the Varsity coach comes to preview the girls before tryouts, Trisha loses her concentration and knows that she can\'t be around Graham anymore. She\'ll just have to practice on her own to make the Varsity cut. THE BOYFRIEND GAME is a sweet look at first love. Trisha is taken by surprise with her feelings for Graham, but what is equally as appealing is seeing Graham struggle with his own conflicting emotions. The story is simple and quick, but leaves the reader with a happy feeling by the final page.show more
