Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally

Publisher: Sourcebooks
Source: Borrowed from Bri
Edition: Paperback
Pages: 281
Rating: B
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 everything she's ever worked for is threatened when Ty Greeen moves to her school. Not only is he an amazing QB, but he's also amazingly hot. And for the first time, Jordan's feeling vulnerable. Can she keep her head in the game while her heart's on the line?

This book. This wonderful book was not was what I was expecting. Not at all. I think that I was expecting Jordan Woods, the protagonist of the story, to be a typical girl who just happened to play football. But I could not have been more wrong. Jordan is not someone who I would want to be up against in a fight. (And not just because she would have her entire football team behind her) She is a seventeen year old girl who would give you no mercy because she never had some herself. It's primarily about football and how the team gets along, and I found that extremely refreshing!

While the exact content of the book wasn't what I was expecting, after I started reading, the book did become a little predictable. Not that I'm complaining! It was nice to read a book about normal people who do normal things. It was very relatable, and I've been missing that! If you want to read a feel good book that you can talk about with your freinds, then this is what I recommend. You get to love the characters and watch how their relationships with each other unfold. It's like reading about the life you secretly wish you had!

This story about a not so average girl is one that is worth the time investment. Trust me. The ending is not something you'll want to miss!


  1. I have to say that this book did not get the attention of me that it deserved. The only reason why I didn't add this one to my TBR list is because of the meh cover. I really don't like it. At first I thought it was cute, but now I just think it's..a big nay. Anyway, the story itself does sounds great. Too bad that it's predictable. Not sure if this one is for me.

  2. Relationships are tough. They are even tougher when you have a secret society spying on you! Check out Tanille's new book Cameo http://cameonia.blogspot.com/

  3. I really need to read this book. I've been wanting to, but haven't had the chance to yet. Great review! Thanks for bringing it to my attention again.


Don't be shy! We love to hear from you!
