4 stars!Shut Out is one of those books that was so fun to listen to! This is the second book of Kody Keplinger's I've read (Duff being the first) and I have to say I love her style. She writes fun reads with just enough seriousness/emotion to keep me invested. But they're also on the light side and entertaining. This was just the type of story I was in the mood for!Lissa is sick of the feud at her school. Soccer boys vs. Football boys. It's been going on too long. It's effecting her and her relationship with her football playing boyfriend. After enough is enough she decides to fight back. She gets together with the girls dating other players from both teams and they unite. They make a pack to 'hold out' until this feud is over. The boys will surely stop this if they're getting cut off, right? It seems like a legit plan but things never seem to go according to plan...Lissa was a fantastic heroine. I love the way she was with her family, she reminded me a lot of myself in that regard. Her dad and brother were great, and her best friend Casey had me laughing throughout the story. I loved how her relationship with our hero progressed. The narration was good when it came to Lissa, but anytime she was voicing any other character, not so great. Still, overall this is an audiobook I would recommend and I would definitely recommend reading it for all YA lovers.

I m a 19 year old college student and young adult author My first book, THE DUFF, debuted on September 7, 2010 I write books for teenagers and strive to be honest and true to life For info, check out my website.kodykeplinger. Bestseller Kindle Shut Out You know there's something wrong with a book when the boys are falling all over themselves for the main character and you're wondering why.I guess Lissa was okay at first. For the first half, maybe. But then she turned into this huge caricature who just lost all intelligence and became obsessed with winning the "war" and finding every pretext to feel sorry for herself. I am aware not all teenagers are sensible, responsible beings. I do, however, like to actually feel something other than annoyance for a book narrator. Which is sadly all that I felt here.Another qualm I have about this book: it felt like a giant feminist manifesto. Let me explain. I don't know if you've ever read one of Kody's blog articles, but she heavily denounces the disparity between males and females when talking about sex. And I do like her blog posts. I agree with her whole-heartedly, it is unfair. BUT, as a reader, I really don't need to be lectured all the way through the novel. I do understand that literature is one of the ways you can change people's mentality, but in this case, it was so completely blatant that I felt I was reading the author's views more than the character's. Which is a shame, really, as I would have loved reading a book delivering the same content, with, you know. Craft and subtlety.I was actually going to give this one 2 stars, but Lissa managed to heighten my frustration to such spectacular levels at the end that I just couldn't even give it that.
