Girl in the Arena by Lise Haines

Haines, Lise Girl in the Arena, 324 pgs. Bloomsbury, 2009. Language - PG (44 swears, 0 "f"), Sexual Content - PG; Violence - PG;

Lyn's seventh father Tommy is going to fight in his third to last battle against Uber. Lyn gives Tommy her dowry bracelet for good luck, but it turns out to be bad luck for her. Uber cuts off Tommy's hand, making the bracelet fall off, and then kills him and picks up the bracelet. Now, according to law, Uber and Lyn have to marry, but Lyn will come up with a crazy plan to prevent it. I enjoyed reading this book with so much action packed into it. I consider this book extraordinary for well balanced--some parts made me cry while others made me laugh--and for great characters in an interesting plot.
