"Whoever said football and girls don't mix hasn't read Catching Jordan. I couldn't put it down!"
— Simone Elkeles, New York Times bestselling author of the Perfect Chemistry series
ONE OF THE BOYS
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 of 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 everything she's ever worked for is threatened when Ty Greeen moves to her school. Not only is he an amazing QB, but he's also amazingly hot. And for the first time, Jordan's feeling vulnerable. Can she keep her head in the game while her heart's on the line?
"A beautiful novel with a real and captivating depiction of high school relationships, Catching Jordan shows the same reverence for the human heart that it does for the game of football."
—Karsten Knight, author of Wildefire
Jordan Woods is the captain and quarterback of her high school football team in Franklin, Tenn. ("I mean, obviously I think Justin Timberlake is a megahunk, but I'm also over six feet tall and can launch a football fifty yards," she boasts). Jordan single-mindedly pursues her dream of getting a football scholarship to the University of Alabama until Ty, a hot quarterback from Texas, moves to town and throws her off her game. In addition to Jordan's instant crush on the new competition, her father (a starting NFL quarterback) won't come to her games; she is under the scrutiny of recruiters; and her longtime best friend is in love with her. When Jordan breaks her own rules and starts dating Ty, she must re-evaluate her priorities. Jordan's team's wholesale acceptance of a female quarterback strains credibility, but debut author Kenneally does a solid job of depicting Jordan's conflicted emotions, the pressure she is under, and her testy relationship with her father. Despite the gridiron setting, this is at its heart a romance most of the action and drama takes place off the field. Ages 13 up.

This book is amazingggg!
I love this book! It is expensive as an eBook, so I only got the sample so I could see if I liked it and yes, I love it! It has lots of profanity. To me, all the cussing just makes it have more personality and make it more exiting!! I think this book is perfect for 12 at the minimum and deffenately for 13-14+ .. You will love this! The sample itself is like a little book, but really no ending(: I took off 1 star because of profanity on EVERY SINGLE page. I wish I could rate 4 1/2 Over all, best book on my device.
One of the best books ever written
I loved this book it is so inspiring! While I was reading I was wishing that the the book would never end and I could follow Jordan through her schooling and with her new boyfriend. I can honestly say that this is my new favorite book! I want to read a sequel to the book!!! Love your writing and keep it up!!!:)

I am absolutely in love with this book! Not really a fan of sports but the story line is great and i couldn't stop reading. Excited for her new book in 2012 but wish there was a direct sequel to this.
