About me:Pretty Tough Books: Published by Razorbill (Penguin Group), Pretty Tough is a series of books about a group of Southern California girls as comfortable in a ponytail and running shoes as glitter and high heels.
PREORDER BOOK #2 - PLAYING WITH THE BOYS..
New girl Lucy is desperate for friends. She tries out for Beachwood High soccer, but despite her amazingly accurate kick, fails to make the team. When the Coach points out that varsity football is looking for a new kicker, Lucy is skeptical. Football? Isn’t that a boys’ game?
But on the gridiron Lucy discovers that she feels strong—in control for the first time since her mother died. She loves football. She actually wants to play! (She also wants to hang out with super-cute quarterback Ryan Conner. But that’s just icing on the cake.)
Too bad no one else wants her on the team. Not the boys’ coach, not her teammates, and especially not her overprotective dad. Will Lucy cave in to the pressure? Or will she prove she’s pretty tough after all?

4 Months to Win it All
The two Brown sisters couldn’t be more different---15 year-old Charlie Brown, (yes, a cruel parental hoax), stick straight, star surfer, decidedly unsophisticated, and Krista, 17, beautiful and best at everything. It takes a soccer championship to bring the sisters together as the lessons learned go far beyond the playing field.
My older sister Krista and I used to be friends. We’d hang out, go to the beach together. Krista would watch me while I surfed. Back then, I couldn’t wait to get to high school.
But now? Everything has changed. Krista is perky, popular…and pathetic. All she cares about are her designer clothes, her fake friend Brooks, her boyfriend Cam, and her image as the most perfect girl in school.
Straight-A student, star athlete-when I stand next to her, I might as well be invisible! But this year, I’ve been recruited to Krista’s soccer team. Shin guards? Twelve dollars. Uniform? Thirty five bucks. The look on Krista's face when she finds out I'm playing? Priceless.
My sister Charlie is a total freak. She thinks she’s some kind of surf - girl rebel. But the truth is, she’s just mean. That’s why she has no friends.
Charlie is always giving me a hard time. She has no idea what life is like! Between Brooks critiquing my outfits, and Cam pressuring me, I feel like I’m going to lose it!
Now, Charlie’s joining the soccer team. I’m supposed to be captain this year. If Charlie thinks she can beat me at my own game, she’s got another think coming.
Who says you can't be both pretty AND tough? These girls constantly push limits and kick grass on and off the field. Perfect for Young Adult readers tired of the same old chick lit.
