Shutout by Brendan Halpin
Shutout is a book about a girl named Amanda who is starting her first year of high school. Amanda and her best friend Lena have been best friends for years. Both friends love soccer and try out for the high school team. But when Lena makes the varsity soccer team and Amanda only makes junior varsity, Lena starts to get more popular than Amanda. Amanda starts to feel shutout of her friend's life and even gets in trouble to try to keep her friend. Will her friendship with Lena survive or will Amanda start to make new friends?
I really liked this book because it's interesting to see how someone's life can change so much in so little time and to see how Amanda deals with it all.
