Publisher Comments:

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

Review:

"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." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
