BOOK REVIEW...The Winning Season by Alison Packard
"The Winning Season" was just like it's title. It completely won me over. I read it in one sitting and I rarely do that.
The characters of Matt and Kelly are merely two words: stubborn and fickle. I loved their crazy banter as I could actually picture it in real life between two people trying to fight off their obvious attraction for the other.
As for the plot, the plot had a lot to do with sports, love, loss, and chasing your dreams.
I felt for both characters as both characters' careers are on the line and are battling their own personal demons. Matt's one was heartbreaking whereas Kelly's one is a self-conscious one. Both are serious issues that are not to be taken lightly.
Over all, GREAT book. I'm hoping Ms. Packard writes another book on Angie and J.T. I mean, SERIOUSLY! What the heck is going on between the two of them! It's obvious they're into one another!! Why is Angie and him playing it off so strongly?!
