Payton Carter is one of six kids (all of which are named after famous football players), not to mention the only girl in the Carter household. With this much testosterone and no mother, it’s no wonder she’s absolutely clueless when it comes to makeup, dances, and talking to guys she’s crushing on.

And now she’s about ready to start her freshman year of high school, which is nerve wrenching enough. But when she ends up running into her crush, Chance Montgomery, at her dad’s sports restaurant, she finds out that the quarterback for their rival team is moving to Aller Falls. This is nothing short of fate.

Payton realizes she has to find a way to impress Chance and get him to ask her out or at least know she’s interested in him—preferably without dropping a plateful of fries on his head, like she did last time. After taking her two oldest brothers’ advice, she decides to go out for the freshman football team, figuring that between practices and games she and her crush will surely be able to talk.

And maybe talking will lead to something more permanent or at least to a first kiss. Only this plan backfires in ways she never imagined, when she beats Chance Montgomery out of the starting quarterback position. Now not only does she make him the laughing stock of the team, but also has to figure out how to avoid the snotty cheerleaders, a traitor best friend, not to mention winning games for her team. Too bad this is just the beginning of her freshman year.

My thoughts and review:

I purchased this book.  All thoughts are my own.
Payton Carter and her five brothers are all named after famous football players thanks to their football loving dad.  Starting her freshman year of high school, she wonders how in the world she will ever find a cute boyfriend with all her brothers lurking nearby and scaring off any prospects.  She suddenly runs into her crush, the quarterback from the rival school, and to her surprise he is transferring to her school to play football.  Things are starting to look up for her.

After much coaxing by her brothers, Payton tries out for the freshman football team, and makes it, beating her crush Chance out of the starting quarterback position.  Now he won't even look at her much less talk to her.  What in the world is Payton to do and how will the team feel having a girl for a quarterback?

This book was such a fun and easy read.  I love the title and the cover art.  This is the type of book that will make you smile when you get finished.  The only downside is all the characters.  There is Payton and her five brothers plus all their friends.  It was hard to keep everyone straight at times.  Payton is a very strong character who doesn't let most things bother her.  And her brothers always have her back when she isn't looking.  Payton is so wrapped up in Chance, at times, she doesn't realize that maybe other guys are interested in her.  This is such a fun, light read, I know you will enjoy it.
