Pretty Tough by Liz Tigelaar

Bubbly, blond Krista brown is pretty and popular. Her sister, Charlie, is more interested in braving the Malibu waves than the halls of the school that Krista rules. but when Krista and Charlie are both recruited to the school’s soccer team, they are forced to face their differences. Can these two sisters become teammates, and friends, in time to make it to the championships?

It's very interesting, this book, because as I read it I could not help thinking how much like a movie it is. The irony is that the author, Liz Tigelaar, is a successful script writer for shows like Brothers & Sisters, and Dirty Sexy Money, and the upcoming Clique movie. This book felt like a novelized movie script. Even if it was cliched and predictable, I really enjoyed this book. I love the alternating between the two sisters POVs. It gives readers a chance to see their part of the story.
