Two types of folks live in Pottsville, Texas. Those who have two jobs and those who have two houses. But no matter their address, Friday night football brings every soul in town together under the same stadium lights. Problem is, the have-nots always watch from the sidelines. Until now…
Four years ago, Reed Maddox made a deathbed promise to his mother before the cancer claimed her life: Take care of their family. To make good on his vow, Reed has agreed to a pact forcing him to abandon his dream of playing football—his one guaranteed ticket out of the trailer park. But when he throws a reckless pass from the sidelines, everything he’s tried to protect is threatened including his guarded heart.
To regain her title as cheer captain and unofficial crown as princess of Pottsville, knock-out Savannah Kensington is about to brush elbows with Reed Maddox and his hooligan friends. But Little Miss Perfect’s world has been upside down longer than anyone who’s seen her winning smile would realize. Still scarred by the death of her baby sister, she hides her feelings under the pretense of popularity. When the opportunity to reclaim her senior year involves a secret deal to help Reed, Savannah accepts.
When their two pacts collide, revealing Reed’s football talent and upending everything Savannah knows about her personal kingdom, Pottsville High implodes. The have-nots are invading, the painted white lines are blurring, and Savannah and Reed are locked together in the middle of a battle between circumstance and privilege. Can their new alliance unite the stands or will the ingrained hatred of a town divided tear apart their chance at happily ever after?

"This story!! I don’t know where to start to tell you how amazing it is!! It’s like The Outsiders/Romeo & Juliet with Football!!! Sound good?? It’s FANTASTIC!!!"
"The first thing you need to know is that I absolutely HATE the sports romance genre. As the person who was the punk kid from the back of the classroom reading about some jocks swapping spit does not qualify as escapist reading. That being said, I couldn't get enough of Sideliners! The author didn't shy away from the rough edges of either side of the fence. The preps were insufferable and judgmental, the kids from the trailer park were crass and irreverent. It was SO well written! The scenes were visceral, I could FEEL the excitement at the football games. I found myself laughing, crying, and my heart was in my throat through moments of tension."
"It gave me some Romeo and Juliet vibes at times. Savannah had a crappy boyfriend and shitty friends. I'm glad she traded up. Book was well written and had a bit of everything : romance, sports, drama, secrets and true friendship. I absolutely loved it and would highly recommend it."
