Sideline by Kendra C. Highley
Publication date: September 23rd, 2013
Genre: Contemporary

After being pushed to excel her entire life, high school basketball star Genna Pierce is finally where she wants to be. University scouts are taking notice, her team is on its way to the state tourney, and Jake Butler, the hot boy she's daydreamed about since ninth grade, is showing some definite interest. When he asks her out and their relationship takes off, Genna believes things can't get better.

Then, it's over.

A freak accident ends her career before it's even begun. Her parents are fighting more than ever, her friends don't understand what she's going through, and she's not sure who she is without basketball. And while he tries to be there for her, Genna doesn't understand how Jake could ever want the broken version of the girl he fell for.

Her life in a tailspin, Genna turns to the only solace that eases her pain: Vicodin.

I think the best part of the entire cover is the basketball-type font of the title. I think that is really ingenious. However, I think that the rest of the cover could be a bit better. I am not feeling the forest of blonde hair on the dude's arms. That's a little weird since the cover basically did a close-up of it. I have never been very interested in sports themed contemporary reads, but this has a bit of substance in it with the implied Vicodin addiction problem. Innnteresting.
