Book Trailer Thursday (33)

Raise your hand if you loved Kody Keplinger’s debut novel The DUFF as much as I did!  I haven’t yet read her new release Shut Out, but I can’t wait to start it.  The trailer for Shut Out released recently, so it’s the perfect fit for today’s Book Trailer Thursday.

P.S. Is it just me, or does the cover model look like Liv Tyler?

Summary (From Goodreads): Most high school sports teams have rivalries with other schools. At Hamilton High, it’s a civil war: the football team versus the soccer team. And for her part, Lissa is sick of it. Her quarterback boyfriend, Randy, is always ditching her to go pick a fight with the soccer team or to prank their locker room. And on three separate occasions Randy’s car has been egged while he and Lissa were inside, making out. She is done competing with a bunch of sweaty boys for her own boyfriend’s attention.

Lissa decides to end the rivalry once and for all: she and the other players’ girlfriends go on a hookup strike. The boys won’t get any action from them until the football and soccer teams make peace. What they don’t count on is a new sort of rivalry: an impossible girls-against-boys showdown that hinges on who will cave to their libidos first. And Lissa never sees her own sexual tension with the leader of the boys, Cash Sterling, coming.

Inspired by Aristophanes’ play Lysistrata, critically acclaimed author of The Duff (Designated Ugly Fat Friend) Kody Keplinger adds her own trademark humor in this fresh take on modern teenage romance, rivalry and sexuality.



  1. Thanks for sharing this. I saw another trailer online. It was just a guy and a girl making out. I have to admit that it made me uncomfortable. Lysistrata was one of my favorite plays we studied during my MFA. It’s a great idea to use the concept for a modern day story.

      I’ve never seen the other one. I can’t imagine it did much for the book if there’s only a couple making out in the trailer.

I love comments!
