Genna Pierce’s life is finally falling into place. Perfect grades? Check. Her choice of scholarship now that basketball recruiters are sniffing around? Check. The hot guy she’s crushed on since freshman year finally noticing her? Looks like it’ll be a check any day now.
But when a freak accident sidelines Genna, her perfect life starts breaking apart into a million less-than-perfect pieces. No more scholarships. Spiraling grades. And she’s sure Jake Butler, her forever crush, will have zero interest in someone as broken as she is.
Except Jake does want to stick around. He may have started falling for the girl Genna used to be, but he’ll wait for the girl she could become—if she can find enough left in her to pick up the pieces and start again.

Sidelined is a great read about finding yourself when your whole world changes. Genna is a star basketball player with her choice of scholarships. Her crush, Jake, has finally started to pay attention to her and she feels like her life is perfect. Then she ends up with a career-ending injury that makes her question everything. Will Jake still like her?
I really enjoyed this book. Genna is a great character and she grows a lot during the story. Jake is such a sweet guy and I really enjoyed his character.
