It flies through the air, a perfect spiral, heading right where I wanted it to go. He catches the ball, spikes it, and does this really stupid dance. Henry looks like a freaking ballerina. With his thin frame and girly blond hair, he actually could be the star of the New York Ballet. His antics get us penalties. This is your year, Woods. I can feel it…Hit the showers. The University of Alabama called last week—on the first day of school—to tell me a recruiter is coming to watch me play on Friday night.
And then a very fancy-looking letter arrived, inviting me to visit campus in September. An official visit. I pull my helmet off and grab a bottle of Gatorade and my playbook. Most of the guys are already goofing off and heading over to watch cheerleading practice across the field, but Iignore them and look up into the stands. Lots of parents come to watch our practices because football is the big thing to do around here.
No knee problems, no broken limbs. Dad never comes to my practices and rarely comes to games. Well, he does. He loves that my brother, Mike, a junior in college, plays for the University of Tennessee and led his team to a win at the Sugar Bowl last year.
You were totally out of position.
Damn it. I love going there. He wipes sweat off his forehead with his red and black jersey. He nods at me. We all crack up again. And then two cheerleaders come up and start fawning over Henry and JJ. What took them so long? Then Kristen and Marie come over, because cheerleaders travel in packs. Ihear it makes your hair frizzy. I sneak a peek at Henry, JJ, and Carter, and they start snickering again. Return to Book Page.

Showing Rating details. Sort order. Nov 17, Giselle rated it it was amazing Shelves: What did I think of Catching Jordan? There is just so much I could say about this book. It has romance, humor, love, loss, friendship, family - it has something for absolutely everyone. Even if you aren't into sports - like me - or know nothing about football - like me - don't even hesitate to pick it up.
This is a masterpiece written by a brilliant mastermind that you Can. Now, let's start with Jordan. Our dear wonderful Jordan who is over six feet tall, plays football and is considered "one of the guys" is completely loveable and such a sweetheart.
She may be a tomboy, but she has the same teenage angst and emotions as any other girl. She wants to talk about her recent crush, vent about not being supported by her dad, and someone to teach her how she's supposed to kiss.
I connected with Jordan immediately - she made me laugh and cry. She made me feel her heart flutter and then break. This was a definite emotional ride that I won't soon forget! The romance is absolutely swoon-worthy.
The chemistry in Catching Jordan is phenomenal. Not just the love chemistry either. A connection is deeply felt between all of the characters: It's all so incredibly well-written with charisma floating off the pages that you'll see these people come alive.
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! Catching Jordan is not simply a love story. It's so so so much more; It's about going for your dreams, overcoming obstacles and never giving up believing they will happen. You will undoubtedly finish this book with a smile on your face!

Actual Review: Ha-haa, what a fun way to spend the evening. This book was amazingly cute, and the characters too adorable for words. F Last page impression: From Jordan and Henry, to JJ, Carter, Ty and the girls, and even the family members — they were all so great that I wished for them to be part of my life.
They filled my day with their jokes and their joy and for a moment, between laughs, they made me miss my old friends from high school. Anyways, I really liked her.
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.
She was like: And I was like: Because we all make mistakes. I wanted to stuck him and Jordan in a room for 7 minutes even though they need more than 7 to figure out what was wrong with them. Anyways, I liked how Henry supported Jordan with everything, even when supporting her was breaking his heart.
He was a good friend.. But at the end he was cute again, thanks god! Yes, there was a bit of a tragedy there, I understand that, but he was too much of a drama queen for my taste. The fact is that he remained a mystery to me, and not one that I wanted to uncover.
Guys and girls. They were awesome and cute, and they had their own moments to star in the story and I laughed like crazy at their jokes. They were so.. The dialogue was realistic and fun, and they made me want to know more about them e. Also, helping Ty and his family was so nice of them. You know what I think about dreams?

I didn't like the immaturity of Jordan's character why does she fall apart with the look of one cute guy?
The more I think about it, the less I liked it. Bottomline, I really didn't connect with the characters and the more I think about it, I didn't care much for them or the story development.

I stayed up.
I didn't write the next day. I read. The story, the characters, it hooked me. And I developed a crush on Sam Henry. Just sayin'.

For a better, I mean completely different league better, book about a girl who plays football, pick up Dairy Queen and forget this one. In Dairy Queen , protagonist DJ Schwenk struggles with the reality of a girl playing a tough, physical boy sport.
She deals with different degrees of acceptance. She balances her hopes, dreams and the realities of her situa Catching Jordan does not do justice to the YA genre, lurve triangles, college football or girls who aspire to play traditional "boy" sports.
She balances her hopes, dreams and the realities of her situation. Unlike Jordan here. Not only is her dad a NFL hero, but in college he was a two-time Heisman trophy winner. The man who happens to be the only real life two time Heisman winner, and an alumni of The Ohio State University!
On that note, author Miranda Kenneally clearly has a beef with Ohio State P At any rate Her dad is a football hero. Her brother is doing quite well in college ball. And Jordan herself has been her town's star quarterback since she was in grade school.
So it is accepted that she is a kick ass football player, despite being a girl. Uh huh. I get it. Girls can do anything boys can do. Sorry ladies. But physically girls simply don't measure up. We don't.
See a Problem?
So while a girl may be able to compete with some guys, in the end guys are bigger, have more muscle mass and therefore more strength. Yet Jordan seems to think that she has a shot at winning a full football scholarship at a Division I-A football school.
Do you know how very difficult that is? For talented football playing boys??? Let alone a girl?
She says she loves football and wants to play football But why must she go to the best of the best? To compete in a sport in which girls can't possibly compete? What the fuck is wrong with going to a smaller school? Do you know how many high school kids may be hometown or even statewide heroes and have to make the heartbreaking decision between accepting a scholarship to a Division I-A school and probably not getting field time because of the talent and the competition When boys, talented boys, are faced with this decision So many high school stars simply fizzle out when it comes to college ball.
And the transition from college to NFL is an even greater one. In so many ways, it is an entirely different game. Clearly, LOL. As for the lurve aspect Jordan was shallow, the story line was unrealistic. Lurve triangle at its worst. Sorry, but there was nothing redeemable or enjoyable about this story.

So this is She's The Man View all 12 comments. Sep 09, Arlene rated it liked it Recommended to Arlene by: When unrequited love is the most expensive thing on the menu, sometimes you settle for the daily special. Oh football fumble! I was really looking forward to reading and falling head over heels for Catching Jordon.
The reviews were looking positive, my book club was enjoying this, and I was getting the whole D. Schwenk vibe just by reading the book jacket.
But after finishing this book, the score is Dairy Queen 5 stars, Catching Jordon 3 stars. Jordon also has a great chance at making full scholarship with Alabama, and her football stats have never looked better. But, that all changes when Tyler Green walks on the field and threatens to steal her position and heart faster than she can pass the football to her wide receiver.
There were a few reasons I had a hard time falling for this book. First and foremost, I felt character confusion. Also, I was never quite sure if I was suppose to fall for Ty, but there was just something about him that left me feeling cold about this character. None of them stood out to me to any significant degree. Next, I was bothered by the way Pop Warner Football and Cheerleaders in general were portrayed in this book.
Too many stereotypes and misconceptions were thrown out there for me to just let it slide. Lastly, I don't like it when characters use physical force to get their point across That just rubs me the wrong way. Just not cute or funny. Overall, the concept was great and I liked the whole theme of girl football player trying to beat the odds in addition to the teenage concepts as they relate to friendship, loyalty and first love… All very promising, but when the final play was delivered I sort of let my poms poms fall to the floor feeling disappointed in the story.

First of all, I wanna make it very clear that in this corner of the world, whenever you say football you're talking about this baby: However, I must admit that after watching the entire five seasons of Friday Night Lights I've grown fond of american football even if I still have no clue how to play it. I consider myself a sport enthusiastic, the kind who watches it, never plays it so I got into this book with the same excitement I'd read the Dairy Queen series.

Sport wise? There's no much here. I enjoy reading these stories because I'll never understand how this college thing works in the States. 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 high school. 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.
I had fun reading Catching Jordan because the writing is simple and I was absorbed in the familiarity of the characters. For the first half of this book, I'm all in. And when I say the first half, I mean Henry. Oh, boy. They are so sweet and adorable together. And I think the story works for me because of their friendship, the history they share, the anecdotes, the banter and silly games. They're pretty much Barney and Robin!
When it comes to love triangles, I'd rather step on a lego. Yet, this was not the case. I'm no Sherlock but I think the resolution was very clear since the very beginning so it did bothered me how much time it took Jordan to realize not what she had to do but when to do it.
I'm too old for the angsty shit. I really liked the way sex isn't the Holy Grail in Jordan's life. I loved the relationship between Jordan and her teammates. It was great to see her surrounded by a supporting family even if dad took his time to do it. I did like that Jordan finds two girl friends in the end. I didn't like how she treated those girls in the beginning the same way I didn't like how the book portrayed cheerleaders, as stupid, shallow or mean.
I've never seen a cheerleader in my life but I guess the stereotype is what bothers me. I'm no cheerleader and I'm shallow and mean whenever I want to be, so 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. All in all, it was a fun, one-sit read but not sure if it was a memorable one. View all 21 comments. Jun 21, Wendy Darling rated it did not like it Shelves: Honestly, for a much cuter, much funnier, much more poignant, non-shallow version of this story, try Dairy Queen.
Plus, there are cows! Aug 01, Tough Critic Book Reviews rated it really liked it. What can I say, I can relate to this book Yes people, there are girls out there that play football.
And yes, they're good. I was starting right tackle and middle linebacker for my team leading in tackles and sacks. I guess what bothers me about some of the reviews is they're bashing the book for being unrealistic. Can a girl play football? Is it likely a girl could quarter back for a D-1 school? The class of literature comprising works of imaginative narration, especially in prose form. Works of this class, as novels or short stories: Something feigned, invented, or imagined; a made-up story: We've all heard the fiction of her being in delicate health.
The act of feigning, inventing, or imagining. Isn't reading improbable or unlikely situations what makes reading fun? Standing at almost 5'll myself, growing up an undoubtable tom-boy, loving sports, and having more guy friends than girl friends makes me feel a kinship to Jordan.
I have personally lived alot of what she went through so let me tell you what is real about this story. The bond between teammates is something only an athlete can understand; it's a family. In Catching Jordan that bond is wonderfully portrayed. I loved her friendships with her teammates!
They constantly have Jordan's back and are always taking care of her. On the other end of the spectrum you have the girls. Most girls are quite catty when it comes to other girls that make them feel threatened. Jordan gets a lot of attention from playing football and has a bond with the guys that the other girls don't. They are jealous and petty; constantly giving Jordan a hard time. However, there are two very refreshing exceptions to that rule in this book.
It's not Jordan's fault that she relates more to the guys than girls. Past experiences have lead her to completely shut the same sex out; she feels like they're all the same.
It's nice to see her get out of her comfort zone and give a few of them a chance. I adored everything about Catching Jordan especially Sam Henry. I get ridiculously giddy and excited when it comes to life-long friendships between the opposite sex.
I fell head-over-heels in love with the relationship between Sam and Jordan. However, I wasn't a huge fan of Ty. Partly because I'm not a fan of love triangles and partly because he was such a complete weeny! I just wanted to smack him! Jordan overcomes so much in this book; she's driven and passionate which makes it easy to like her.
You learn that she likes "guy stuff", despises being a "girly-girl" and gets along better with the opposite sex. Just because she doesn't act like a girl doesn't mean she doesn't have the heart of a girl!
View all 11 comments. Such a great comfort book for rainy days like today here. I looked at Catching Jordan with my "snarky eyes" - if there is such a thing - for a good part of it, to be honest.
First of all, a girl playing football?! How can you write a book about a girl playing football after DJ Schwenk in Dairy Queen and not expect to be mercilessly subjected to comparison with that winning series? Ok, the plots differ but, at the end of the day, they're both about the coming of age of two girls chasing their dr Such a great comfort book for rainy days like today here.
She does have some great qualities as well but I felt her bad ones outshone just a little too much. By the end of the book she does redeem herself on that account but I felt it just took a little long. The love interests in this book are both super cute and the romance is pretty good, but there is defiantly some insta-love.
I felt that the relationships in this book could have been a lot more developed. Then there is her best friend Henry, who has basically been in love with her forever but she was totally clueless about it. I actually really like Henry. He is sweet, cute and someone that I would have dated in high school. Overall, I would say that this book was just ok for me.
The story was fun to read and it flowed really well, but not being able to connect with Jordan just made it hard to love.
I am going to be honest, I have read many reviews for this book and I am in the minority in not loving this book. Almost every review I read said that they loved it so if the story sounds intriguing to you I would still defiantly say to give it a try because you may love this book like so many other people did. Damn, now that I know about Henry. Henry:I love the way his curls flop around and hang across his forehead.
I love how he never just lets me win.
I have to earn it. I love how he touches me just because. I love his loyalty. I love how when we sleep head-to0toe, he always finds a reason to sleep head-to-head instead. I love his unconditional support. I love his spontaneity and crazy sense of humor. I love his stupid dances. I love…him. This book made me want to play football. I'm freaking telling you. Miranda made me adore Jordan so much that I started wishing I was her.
Why aren't I the girl who plays football? Why aren't I the awesome, but somewhat awkward sporty girl?You will undoubtedly finish this book with a smile on your face!
I loved the relationship between Jordan and her teammates. Even though at first it sounds pretty unbelievable that a girl could be so much better then guys at sports, especially if you consider the fact that the female body is naturally builted weaker then male, there are things explained in this book.
The Daily Special Chapter But if you feel that might not be enough for you, let me assure you this book is also freaking hilarious.
So many high school stars simply fizzle out when it comes to college ball.
