Get to Know Us. Shannon has a great way of narrating in first person that at times seems as if she's talking to the reader in asides.
One Night That Changes Everything. The chips make a clinking noise as she stacks them up. Es muy tipico el hecho de que por tratar de conseguir algo que verdaderamente nos importa hagamos cosas sin tomar en cuenta las consecuencias de nuestros actos: Gosh this book was horrible. Her best friend Max her coworker, Mackenzie, who decides that they're befriends out of the blue. Her droll style maximizes the humor, which could undermine the serious theme.
My problem with her was when it comes to her characterisation.
But when Shannon musters up the nerve to kiss Max and he doesn't react at all, the allure of Aces Up and its sexy eighteen-year-old leader, Cole, is suddenly too powerful to ignore. He was also was 'edgy', 'rebellious', 'rugged', 'mysterious' and 'loaded'.
I pick it up and watch as she starts loading my tray with the little plastic cups of drinks that are sitting on the bar, already filled. Heat of the Moment Moment of Truth.
I cannot afford to buy her new ones, after a thirty twenty-five dollar payday. It was too late for me to like her characters though.
I felt like she juggled both relationships backwards. Overall, though it's short aaces sweet, Aces Up sends a message that I think is worth a lot and definitely worth the read!

Isn't it stereotyped that males are better in Math and females in language? Then Max asks Shannon to uup him in math but chemistry seems to be the topic at hand, if you catch my drift.
ACES UP by Lauren Barnholdt | Kirkus Reviews
So, put that way, it doesn't sound so funny, but it really is, due almost exclusively to her quirky and characterful narrative voice, which makes her bad decisions seem comprehensible, if not wise, and give her choices a surface plausibility, even if they are kooky and self-destructive in the short, long and medium runs. Even though there were rough patches, these two are wonderfully supportive and protective of Shannon in the long run.
This is definitely not part of hanging.
It makes me want to read it. I just loved how he could sympathise with girl troubles as if he really understood. The quick and easy money seems a pretty big tempation, but it is only after Shannon is rejected by her long-term crush, Max, that she seems keen to try Aces Up.
