Blaze is tired of spending her life on the sidelines, drawing comics and feeling invisible. She's desperate for soccer star Mark to notice her. And when her BFF texts Mark a photo of Blaze in sexy lingerie, it definitely gets his attention. After a hot date in the back of her minivan, Blaze is flying high, but suddenly Mark's feelings seem to have been blasted by a freeze-ray gun, and he dumps her. Blaze gets her revenge by posting a comic strip featuring uber-villain Mark the Shark. Mark then retaliates by posting her "sext" photo, and, overnight, Blaze goes from Super Virgin Girl to Super Slut. That life on the sidelines is looking pretty good right about now...

Well, I feel old…It's been a long time since I've suffered through a lot of the emotions and high school drama that was portrayed in this book.  It was good and sometimes laugh-out-loud funny and maybe just a little strange but in a very appealing way.  I love blaze's character she is funny and her dialog is quite amusing but…the Minivan is a character unto itself.

I would recommend for teenagers mostly but I still found the reading of Blaze entertaining.  I read anything my kids need read first so I'm used to reading a lot of younger reader target age range. 

Disclosure: All opinions are my own. I received Blaze at no cost for the purpose of this review. No other compensation was received.
