When Native American Fredricka ‘Fred’ Oday is invited to become the only girl on the school’s golf team, she can’t say no. This is an opportunity to shine, win a scholarship and go to university, something no one in her family has done.

But Fred’s presence on the team isn’t exactly welcome — especially not to rich golden boy Ryan Berenger, whose best friend was kicked off the team to make a spot for Fred.

But there’s no denying that things are happening between the girl with the killer swing and the boy with the killer smile...

GET HOOKED ON A GIRL NAMED FRED 


From Goodreads

My Review...

I thought this book was a super sweet book and well written.  Fred (Fredricka) and Ryan are from two different worlds but have two different things in common- golf & a dysfunctional family.  Those two commons is what bridges the worlds and lets them find each other.

Fred was so sweet and misunderstood. I loved that she was from a different culture and that we get to see a glimpse of that world.  Ryan is a frustrated and an ignored boy from a more upper class world with completely brutal friends.

My bare arm folded across the open window as the air tickled my face. I closed my eyes and pretended that the wind was a boy kissing my cheeks.  (Fred's POV)

However, some way the are drawn together and begin to combine their worlds where all that matters is each other and not who you are or where you are from.  This journey was not an easy one though there were many hurdles to get their but it was worth it in the end because their love was the healing band aid that everyone needed. 

I really liked this book and can't wait to read Riley and Sam's story.
