"A hero who will melt your heart."—Jennifer Echols, national award-winning author of Such a Rush
Parker Shelton pretty much has the perfect life. She's on her way to becoming valedictorian at Hundred Oaks High, she's made the all-star softball team, and she has plenty of friends. Then her mother's scandal rocks their small town and suddenly no one will talk to her.
Now Parker wants a new life.
So she quits softball. Drops twenty pounds. And she figures why kiss one guy when she can kiss three. Or four. Why limit herself to high school boys when the majorly cute new baseball coach seems especially flirty?
But how far is too far before she loses herself completely?
Praise for Catching Jordan:
"A must-read for teens! I couldn't put it down!"—Simon Elkeles, New York Times bestselling author of the Perfect Chemistry series
"With a clever, authentic voice, Kenneally proves once and for all that when it comes to making life's toughest calls-on and off the field-girls rule!"—Sara Ockler, bestselling author of Fixing Delilah
Parker Shelton wants everyone to know one thing about her: she likes boys. After her mother divorced her father for another woman, Parker has made it her goal to be seen with guys. Lots of them. But when not-quite-legal Parker sets her sights on the boys' baseball coach, things get dicey even for her. Parker is also growing closer to her academic rival, Will, a thoughtful, chivalrous guy who her newly out BFF Drew secretly has the hots for, too. Further complicating matters: a brother who's constantly drunk or high, a father who thinks the church has all the answers, and a former friend intent on taking Parker down. Kenneally (Catching Jordan) writes with heart, earnestly tackling such challenges as being a teen with a gay parent and being unsure of one's faith. Parker's insecurities, her desire to be loved, and her uncertainty about how far to take her steamy but illegal relationship are realistic. Not only will readers want to see Parker find true love, they'll also hope she learns to love herself. Ages 13 up.

Felt so real
It was honestly such an amazing book. It felt so real and I felt like I was Parker. I started tearing up at parts. I wish some things ended differently but I guess books can't always be a perfect happily ever after. Great read.
I've never read a better book
I have to be the biggest fan of this book im waiting for catching Jordan to arrive at my library but this book is far better than any other book I've ever read. Read this book and you won't regret it😏❤️
I made the mistake of reading "things I can't forget" before "stealing Parker" I loved both, but I wish I had read stealing Parker first because it seemed to be a prequel to things I can't forget. I loved both, but I would definitely conclude Parker's as my favorite. I LOVED how confident she was, and my father is gay so I could definitely relate. Kate's love story is defiantly in my top favorites, I obsess over summer camp related books. The order in which I read this series is all out of whack, I'll be starting Jordan's now....oops. Miranda is definitely my favorite author, and as an newly inspired teen writer, her books really take a tole on me. I feel so close to the story lines, lots of talk about Georgia and Georgia tech, quite a coincidence I live in that very state. Please Miranda, KEEP WRITING IN THIS SERIES. I can't think of the name, but in things I can't forget, Kate had a best friend, and I would LOVE a book about her love story!
