My sister is a tomboy and I don’t think I could pay her to wear a dress or her to miss a soccer practice. Lurve cxtching at its worst. I would love to have friends like these guys! And she’s not just any chick, but one that happens to be a kick-ass captain of a high school football team.

She acted like a guy, cussed like a guy, and did just about everything like a guy. All of the above.
Notify me of new posts via kennelaly. Jordan not only loves football but has the privilege of being the team leader of the most unique bunch of guys ever with the pressure of getting a scholarship. It felt so natural that not once did I roll my eyes at any over dramatic teenager angst. Her father, Donovan Woods, is the starting quarterback for the Tennessee Titans.
But Jordan’s best-friend, and teammate, Henry worries that Ty is cozying up to Jordan for his own good, trying to use her to get her position. And then I though, oh gosh, is Henry in for a chance here? Catching Jordan is a book that has a lot to offer.
Miranda Kennneally pulled off something incredibly difficult – she wrote a beautiful and heart-warming tale of love and friendship, infused with vivid emotions, meaningful thoughts and inspirational messages, and set it against an incredibly unique and realistically drawn sports background. 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.
I can’t wait to see what Miranda Kenneally does next. That just rubs me the wrong way. One of the MAIN reason Jordan isn’t happy is she’s starting to feel all catcying like have “feelings” and stuff.
It’s just tells you that it happened and people are getting together. I guess what bothers me about some of the reviews is mirand bashing the book for being unrealistic.

I was starting right tackle and middle linebacker for my team leading in tackles and sacks. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email.
I always admire sporty female characters who can play with guys. So it is accepted that she is a kick ass football player, despite being a girl. On the other end of the spectrum you have the girls. Sure, when hot Ty comes around she wants to be a little more girly, and even makes a couple girl friends, but at the end of the day she was still pretty boyish. She had this optimism like an aura around her words, and even with all her insecurities and her problems she seemed to know where she was standing and she seemed to be enjoying her life.
Is it likely a girl could quarter back for a D-1 school? I was really disappointed that she started sleeping with Ty.
When Jordan discovers an attraction to another quarterback who has just moved to town, feelings get complicated with her and her best friend and wide receiver, Sam Henry. Jordan’s relationship is different with each one but they are all rock solid.
Review: Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally | The Book Pushers | Book Reviews | Book Chatter
When unrequited love is the most expensive thing on the menu, sometimes you settle for the daily special. I looked at Catching Jordan catchint my “snarky eyes” – if there is such a thing – for a good part of it, to be honest.
Jordan is a Quarterback, the captain of her team My dear friend Jasmin and I decided it was about time for us to do another buddy read together and Catching Jordsn was the book we chose was the perfect choice, because we always buddy read YA or NA contemporary.
Such a great comfort book for rainy days like today here. Once they hooked up he kind of disappears from the story, even though they were still sleeping together…I krnneally dating. I enjoy reading these stories because I’ll never understand how this college thing works in the States. Jul 08, Camila, the opinionated Catruler rated it it was ok Shelves: Jordan is one of the most kick ass quarterbacks in Tennessee.
I was actually annoyed that I decided to read it over the Christmas break, as I either had endless family members over or had to go out visiting family. Jordan is the star quarterback for the Hundred Oaks Red Raiders, her dream is to play for Alabama; the best football team in the country.
He seems to only have eyes for Jordan. Which was part of my problem; they treated her like a guy not a girl. That all changes when there’s a new transfer in town, whom she actually starts developing “girly” feelings for. It was great to see her surrounded by a supporting family even if dad took his time to do it.
This is the first book I’ve read that has made me laugh to the point of tears I’m so glad I wasn’t in public and now that it’s over, my heart is so filled that I desperately want to hug this book, marry it, and have it’s babies!
