Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Catching Jordan is a cute sporty contemporary novel about first love.
Jordan Woods loves football. She is the quarterback for her high school's football team. She is friends with most of the boys and has never been in love. But everything changes when Ty Green moves into her town. Ty is adorable and the perfect boy for Jordan. She starts getting feelings for him, and the romance blossoms. But how will Jordan manage first love?
The cover of this book is gorgeous and totally reflects the point of the bok. However, it isn't quite as good as some of the sporty covers I've seen
I liked Jordan's attitude. She loved football and would do her best to get into Alabama State. However, she got pretty clueless. When Henry admitted that he loved her, she just stood by and did nothing. This was the biggest thing I didn't like about this book. I just hoped Jordan would come to her senses and stop being so stupid. She turned into a girly girl wherever Ty (or Henry) was concerned.
Ty started out as a good sweet guy. But after Jordan started dating him, he got pretty pushy and demanding. It didn't help that he was competing for her position as quarterback. He did have a good reason to be that way. His dad had died in an accident and his mom was paralyzed. Ty had to keep his mom and little sister fed and properly cared for in his grandmother's house.
Henry was a sweet character who was just one of the boys. There were a lot of different football boys in this book that made it confusing.
I liked Jordan had her mind set on going to Alabama for college. However, when she applied there, they started using her as a poster girl instead of telling her she was going to play.
It was neat how Jordan's dad doesn't want to play football. He is afraid of her getting hurt. He should know because he is a pro football player.
The ending of this book was sweet.
I really enjoyed this sporty novel.
