What It's About!

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 on 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 starring position on the team... and has her suddenly wishing to be seen as more than just a teammate.


Catching Jordan turned out to be different than what I expected--but in a good way. Jordan turns out to be a girl, as we find out in the very beginning of the book. She's a hardcore high school football player, who is the team leader and star quarterback. Her best friend is also a football player, Sam Henry, which she always refers to as Henry. I love Henry. He's the type of guy bestfriend girls in generally probably dream of, if they don't already have a Henry of their own. 

In a way, this book reminded me of the show Grey's Anatomy (My fav show!) in the fact that it's about football, but there's things happening in Jordan's life on the side too, it doesn't try to shove football down your throat. You get to see Jordan's love and passion for football, but also some of the highs and lows of being a teenage girl, surrounded by pretty jocks and awesome guy friends.

This is such a cute, quick read. All the characters are very likeable and relate-able in some way or another, especially Jordan. She's so down to earth and she's not always on an ego trip even though she's almost always surrounded by guys. She does make a few new girl friends towards the end though. She also goes through a bit of a rough patch with Henry and experiences a not-so-dreamy-boyfriend, even though that's what he started out as. 

Miranda Kenneally really hit it right on with the teenage emotions and things that go on in this book, and I really enjoyed it, and hope you will too. :)
