Shut Out was a pretty good read with a fairly good plot that was written really well. I saw the romance plot coming a mile off though I'm afraid. Lissa starts off the story going out with Randy, the Quarterback who ditches her at every opportunity to run off and instigate or retaliate to the soccer team's attempts to prank him. Randy is just too much of an oblivious fool... He is really dense about Lissa's feelings and she seems only patronisingly fond of him. He days were absolutely numbered, even before Lissa thinks up a "sex strike" to try and win back s attention and end the silly feud.

Cash, or the boy from the library (*swoon*) was my pick for romantic interest number 2 the minute he was mentioned. To be honest, it was the name that did it... Cash... It conjures up all kinds of suave mental images and it took me a while to get past it. (I find it really hard to understand why someone would name their child, or character, after money.) As a book lover, the idea of Lissa and Cash getting to know each other romantically between the stacks of books was... Rather good and I certainly appreciated the references to Atonement.

The footballs vs soccer team feud seemed relatively harmless until someone is injured and forced to sit the season out, and this is what prompts Lissa to group the girlfriends together and make life collectively hard for the guys, forcing Randy to make some interesting life choices. I had several feelings about this, storyline mainly along the lines of them being too young in the first place for this in high school (but that might be me being conservative). I felt like this story would have been better off in a college new adult setting, it just seemed a bit much for YA fiction.

I really enjoyed reading Shut Out. It was one of those books that once I started it, I had to keep on reading, so I finished it quite quickly.

Shut Out is written in Lissa's point of view. She is fed up of the rivalry between two of the boys teams at Hamilton High; the soccer team and the football team (they are different teams in America) because her boyfriend Randy keeps putting the rivalry before her. So Lissa comes up with a plan and gathers all the girls with boyfriends on each team together and all agree to go on a sex strike until the rivalry ends.

I thought Shut Out had a great underlying message and managed to deal with the pressures that teenage girls face around sex. I really liked how Kody was able to bring these issues to light, as many teenage girls grow up with stereotypes of how they should be when it comes to sex; from virgin to a girl who likes sex and isn't afraid to let people know. I particularly liked that it brought up the double standards that there are for boys and girls when it comes to sex. Kody manages to talk about these issues, but still keep the novel light and fun.

The characters were all really likeable in this which help make it an easy read. The only time I got really annoyed with Lissa was towards the end when I just wanted her to face her problems and stop running away from them. I have totally fallen for Cash though, such a gentleman and perfect boyfriend material.

This was a really great read to just curl up on the sofa with which is light and fun with the right amount of reality thrown in.

Format: Paperback
Lissa is sick of the rivalry between the American football and soccer teams at her school, and how it takes her boyfriend's attention away from her. Not only that, but the pranks are getting violent and people ar egetting hurt. She has decided it must end. With the other girlfriends of the football and soccer players, they go on strike, refusing to have sex or perform any sexual acts with their boyfriends until the rivalry is over. What Lissa didn't expect is or the guys to come up with ideas together about how to seduce them and break the strike before the rivalry ends. It's a battle of the sexes, and it's 50/50 on who will give in first...

Despite the rivalry/strike plot, this book is about so much more than a battle of the sexes. This book is brilliant for one very specific reason: it encourages it's readers to have positive and healthy attitudes towards sex. How? Through the varying experiences of the girls on strike. Shut out touches on a lot of questions that go through teenage girls' minds about sex. I remember when I was a teen and the confusion there was. My friends and I would talk about sex, but we wouldn't talk about it. With peer pressure, there came rules. Certain things are acceptable, and other things are not. But what if your feelings on sex were the other way round? There's also an inequality of attitudes towards girls and sex, and boys and sex. How what's ok for boys isn't for girls. Girls can't be promiscuous where boys can. Yet girls shouldn't be virgins either, because what boy will be interested in a girl who doesn't have sex? This is exactly what Shut Out talks about. How every person is different, and there is no right or wrong when it comes to sex. And it's just fantastic!
