Some Books Ago: Shut Out by Kody Keplinger

Some Books Ago is a shout out to all those books published some years ago. I don't want you to forget them!

Maybe you see Kody Keplinger's name and think "THE DUFF!" Every time I see her name I think of Shut Out. I read this book before The DUFF and I like it even more. I don't remember too much about it, but my Goodreads review says I found it funny and cute and it was my favorite contemporary back them. So, yeah, I guess I loved it. 
Have you read Shut Out? If you liked The DUFF, then you'll going to like this one, too!

It was published on September 5th 2011 by Poppy



Most high school sports teams have rivalries with other schools. At Hamilton High, it's a civil war: the football team versus the soccer team. And for her part, Lissa is sick of it. Her quarterback boyfriend, Randy, is always ditching her to go pick a fight with the soccer team or to prank their locker room. And on three separate occasions Randy's car has been egged while he and Lissa were inside, making out. She is done competing with a bunch of sweaty boys for her own boyfriend's attention.

Lissa decides to end the rivalry once and for all: She and the other players' girlfriends go on a hookup strike. The boys won't get any action from them until the football and soccer teams make peace. What they don't count on is a new sort of rivalry: an impossible girls-against-boys showdown that hinges on who will cave to their libidos first. And Lissa never sees her own sexual tension with the leader of the boys, Cash Sterling, coming.


  1. I remember the cover of this book! I didn't associate the author with this book, for some reason. I'm glad you loved this one, Lis! =)

  4. Oh, I have this book but I never read it! I read and loved The Duff back in 2013 and immediately ordered this one, but it was back when I just started reading in English and discovered so many books I never got a chance to read bc they were never translated into Croatian. So you can imagine, I still have many books from that year that I still haven't read.
