She worries she’ll lose focus on her goal of getting a scholarship, and playing on her favorite college team at University of Alabama. I knneally afraid the account bg an almost 18 year old girl discovering love for This was such a sweet, adorable read. Not a tomboy, but a boy. Though, I had some incredibly large problems with the plot such as; Blatant stereotypingevery girl who wasn’t Jordan was either a slut or bimbo.
Joddan, the plots differ but, at the end of the day, they’re both about the coming of age of two girls chasing their dreams.
I’m not a fan of football, but I found this book really enjoyable to read. The payoff was short and felt a bit rushed. It’s also – or perhaps even most of all – a book about relationships and how they affect us, shaping our personalities, dictating our choices, putting us down and building us up.
jodan Catching Jordan is the first book in Hundred Oaks series and it follows Jordan and her friends who play football or like I prefer to call it, American rugby, because you know, us people from Europe prefer another sport called football. It was great to see her surrounded by a supporting family even if dad took his time to do it. It was definitely not what I had expected yb the blurb, and yes, it did kind of read like a Wattpad story which it wasso but it was an enjoyable read nonetheless.

Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally – review
Enter Ty Green, just transferring from Texas. When there is a book centered around a football team, that creates problems for people who are footballily clueless moi. Jordan’s father is the great Donovan Woods. And this book is filled with wonderfully depicted relationships of all sorts, from friendships, romantic relationships, to the different flavours of relationships between family members. And I didn’t like the way the author tried to convince me Ty wasn’t for her just by making him look like a jerk in the end.
Review: Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally | The Book Pushers | Book Reviews | Book Chatter
I ctching that Jordan had a goal and was doing all she could to achieve it. Her father is an NFL star player although, he doesn’t approve of Jordan playingher brother plays in college, and all her friends are the players on her team. The only reason I rated this 4.
The only character I e Sorry, but I just can’t. The romance is absolutely swoon-worthy. Is it to be a strong girl you have to give up all feminine qualities and act like a guy? I’ll miranea that it may not be the most creative writing style, but it was simplistic and compelling hard to put this book down. I can’t wait to see what Miranda Kenneally does next. I had fun reading Catching Jordan because the writing is simple and I was absorbed in the familiarity of the characters.
Yes, they appreciated her football skills and treated her like one of mlranda guys. Sam, on the other hand, was the perfect gentlemen to Jordan throughout the whole book. Kfnneally looked at Catching Jordan with my “snarky eyes” – if there is such a thing – for a good part of it, to be honest. After I’m done for the day, I take a shower, lay in bed, and read for about an hour.

Not only is her dad a NFL hero, but in college he was a two-time Heisman trophy winner. She still has insecurities and things that she feels like she must time from other people, such as her love for writing and poetry.
The ideal Christmas gift is pricey, though, and while that’s not a problem for Jordan, Henry is too Fantastic! All in all, I was so happy I found this book by total accident. This was a nice surprise! As for the lurve aspect She is just a big girl. I would recommend this book to friends looking for a romance contemporary that’s light and humorous, with a touch of melodrama, and also for fans of Kasie West.
When they had their sleepovers and they would snuggle, it was so cute. The class of literature comprising works of imaginative narration, especially in prose form. And it was so refreshing to have a YA that deals with sex in a natural way.
Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. Another super fast read from Miranda Kineally that had me swooning. And she does it with such skill and conviction, it’s absolutely enthralling.
Notify me of new posts via email. Well, jokes on her, because I read it anyways and actually quite enjoyed it. Though carching of the football terms quite confuse me because I wasn’t really fan of that sports, it’s still a great read.
Here we’ve got it too easy I think, so it’s difficult for me to imagine the struggle kids go through in their final year of catchin school. As a girl, she suffers with some quite sexist comments and ideals, and strives to work as hard as she can, to be the best that she can be.
