Review: Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally

Released: December 1, 2011
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire
Rated: YA
Buy: Amazon
What girl doesn't want to be surrounded by gorgeous jocks day in and day out? Jordan Woods isn't just surrounded by hot guys, though-she leads them as the captain and quarterback of her high school football team. They all see her as one of the guys, and that's just fine. As long as she gets her athletic scholarship to a powerhouse university. But now there's a new guy in town who threatens her starting position... suddenly she's hoping he'll see her as more than just a teammate.

What I thought

This was a fantastic read. I'm not really a fan of football. I don't really understand the game a whole lot and really have no interest in learning more about it. So, I was a little apprehensive about picking this one up and reading it. I'm glad I took a chance though. Because it was pretty great.

This was a little different from what I thought it was going to be. But I loved it. I loved watching Jordan realize a few things and finally go for what she really wanted, not just what she had. I was definitely Team Jordan. Reading her struggle with wanting to play college ball but having the disadvantage of not being born a guy really does play a role in this and I was glad to see Jordan work her way through all of it. I also loved the chemistry between Jordan and her teammates. They really had her back and didn't make her feel second rate because of her gender.

Loved the romance in this. It didn't play out like I thought it might (hence the vagueness) but I really got behind this aspect of it and really wanted Jordan to get what she wanted.

This was just a great read. Definitely worth buying and adding to your shelf.

Now I really want to know how this one turns out. I'm curious to see how Jordan deals with being female and on a football team and if she gets what she wants in the end.

I'm not a football fan at all either so hearing that you loved it despite that makes me think I'll have to read it! I've seen some rave reviews so apparently it's really good! So glad you loved it!
