Echols, Jennifer The Ex Games, 302 p. Simon, 2009. Language: R (60+ swears). Hayden, 17, has it in her to become a snowboard pro, except for one little problem – big air terrifies her. And since she moved to Snowfall Colorado in the 7th grade, and had a disastrous first romance with hottie Nick, the two have been constant rivals. Now Nick has challenged Hayden to a contest – one that involves big air – in order to prove whether boys or girls are better on the board. Hayden had better get over her fear fast, because more than just a couple of concert tickets are riding on this showdown! It’s too bad the author felt such a need for swears, because otherwise this is a great light romance. HS – OPTIONAL. Cindy, Libray-Teacher.
