Honestly? I only started reading this because I heard it was 'a mess, but fun' so I expected it to be one of those 'so bad its good' books. Instead, it's just actually really interesting.

The Foxhole Court tells the story of a teen boy, Neil, on the run from a dark past and his joining a ragtag group of misfits playing college Exy, a sport I presume is made up but wouldn't actually know about since I know basically nothing about college sports.

While the start is just as 'oh man this is so bad it's good' as I expected with this reaaaaallyyy over-dramatic first few pages, it actually gets pretty interesting. The characters are all pretty unlikeable, but that's kind of the point. Neil is way more interesting than I expected him to be. There's a lot in here that's pretty 'wow this is over-dramatic' but really, it gets good at some points. While it's far from the best book I've ever read, I've already bought and started the second in the series, so it's definitely worth a read!
