OK, i got tired of repeting it as writing on ipad is so not fun and I guess that you got my point by now This book was so damn fun to read Actual Review Ha haa, what a fun way to spend the evening.This book was amazingly cute, and the characters too adorable for words 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 I could have hugged them all and take them home, that s how much I like them When unrequited love is the most expensive thing on the menu, sometimes you settle for the daily special The cover It s beautiful In fact it s what caught my attention back in April when I saw it for the first time.Also there s something about that line between the boy and the girl maybe it s not supposed to have a meaning, but the book is all about crossing the line with the guy Jordan liked, with her friends, with her family, her choices and options, and so on Jordan As I found out, Jordan is the girl, and it s funny because before reading the book I was so sure that Jordan was the guy in the story, LOL.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.I liked in a way how Jordan reacted when the guy she liked didn t make a move She was like ok, you don t want me, it is not the end of the world, there are plenty of fish in the sea, I ll find someone else in fact I have someone else , let s see how you like it And I was like finally a girl with something between her ears that doesn t spend all her time moping around She didn t just wait for him, crying in a corner even though the guy of her choice was not the best she could have found, and also there were plenty of tears involved here and there.As a side note I ve also noticed that she seems to like and want mostly the things that she doesn t have, but. don t we all Maybe this is another thing that made her real as a character can be Because we all make mistakes And sometimes we don t realize what we have until it s too late, but don t we all deserve another chance I didn t know crushing on a guy would require me to up my calorie intake Henry For about 2 3 of the story or less he was the best character ever The cute one, the funny one, the one that makes you laugh until you choke, the one that you want to give breathless hugs, the one that you want to kiss for being so sweet, the one with a take me home sign on his forehead.I would have given this book 5 stars if Henry wouldn t have started at some point acting like an emo jerk no offence to emo or jerk people I wanted to stuck him and Jordan in a room for 7 minutes even though they need 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. that is until he wasn t a friend at all But at the end he was cute again, thanks god I love how when we sleep head to toe,he always finds a reason to sleep head to head instead TyI thought that he was supposed to be the bad guy, playing with Jordan s feelings for his own interests I waited for him to show his real face and let me tell you that when he finally did I was a bit surprised but not in the way I ve expected it.I couldn t make myself like him, mostly because he was so damn controlling Yes, there was a bit of a tragedy there, I understand that, but he was too much of a drama queen for my taste He is the only character I couldn t really understand as his moods changed all through the story Maybe he was a bit instable because of what happened in the past, maybe he was just there to fill in the space between Jordan and Henry to make the story work and the author didn t pay enough attention to him Who knows The fact is that he remained a mystery to me, and not one that I wanted to uncover I ve never been to a dance, and I ve certainly never worn a girly evening gown dress thing It had better drive Ty crazy, because I can t breathe in this damned thing Friends I guess there s no need to repeat myself, still I m gonna say again how much I loved all Jordan s friends. 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. alive, if you get what I mean The dialogue was realistic and fun, and they made me want to know about them e.g about Carter and his relation with his father, or Ty and his family FamilyI liked them all, from the parents to Mike the big brother and his friend.Even if I wanted for the half of the book to punch Jordan s father in the face. with a baseball bat, he was really nice in the end, and I liked how even when he didn t agree with Jordan s choices to play football he never told her not to.Also, helping Ty and his family was so nice of them Jordan You know what I think about dreams Ty smiles slightly What Jordan That if you spend too much time dreaming, you ll stop actually doing. Sweet moments Henry s victory dance the fake baby truth or dare Ty and Jordan s first kiss Henry pretending to be asleep my splash is bigger than yours p This review can also be found at ReadingAfterMidnight.comBook source ARC from the publisher, via Netgalley Thank you ____________________________________________Blog EN Facebook Twitter Tumblr Bloglovin Blog RO ____________________________________________

    It was an okay read I liked the storyline of the book, the uniqueness of Jordan s character liked her honesty but she lacked a bit of maturity , the football references even though I m not a football fan , Jordan s relationships with the guys on her team I loved that her best friends were guys who loved her and looked out for her , her best friend Sam Henry even though he was a wussy tramp at times , development of friendships with girls, her supportive brother, and resolution in relationship with her dad I didn t like the immaturity of Jordan s character why does she fall apart with the look of one cute guy is it really necessary to punch the guys so much , obsession with casual sex particularly the football guys and cheerleaders too much stereotyping , fast relationship with Ty who had a compelling story himself but she barely knew him and gave herself up to him quickly why , the love triangle seemed forced, Sam coping with his heartbreak through lots of sex really he had no other outlet , and despite the sex talk the book really lacked romance of any kind Addendum The I think about it, the less I liked it Bottomline, I really didn t connect with the characters and the I think about it, I didn t care much for them or the story development.

    I m a night reader After I m done for the day, I take a shower, lay in bed, and read for about an hour But not with this book 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.Dear Miranda,You could write a book solely about Sam Henry and I would read it Just sayin.From,Katie

    Catching Jordan does not do justice to the YA genre, lurve triangles, college football or girls who aspire to play traditional boy sports 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 situation Unlike Jordan here Let s see, Jordan is a high school senior, and daughter of a NFL pro Not only is her dad a NFL hero, but in college he was a two time Heisman trophy winner Umwhat the fuck with the slap in the face to Archie Griffin 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 her players don t care when Ohio State scouts come to the game but get their panties jockstraps in an uproar when scouts from the team up North come to check them out Whatever P At any rate Jordan 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 Really Girls can do anything boys can do Except sometimes they can t Sorry ladies But physically girls simply don t measure up We don t So while a girl may be able to compete with some guys, in the end guys are bigger, have muscle mass and therefore 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 which I can believe 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 and accepting a scholarship at a smaller and less prestigious school yet getting lots of playing time because the competition isn t nearly as fierce When boys, talented boys, are faced with this decision it is difficult for me to believe that a girl would be recruited by and play at a Division I A school Further, the kids in this book casually make statements such as, He s NFL material Uh, what Firstly going from high school football to college football is such a huge leap 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 Anyway. the sports aspect of this book severely disappointed me Clearly, LOL As for the lurve aspect clich d triangle Jordan was shallow, the story line was unrealistic Lurve triangle at its worst Sorry, but there was nothing redeemable or enjoyable about this story.

    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.J Schwenk vibe just by reading the book jacket But after finishing this book, the score is Dairy Queen 5 stars, Catching Jordon 3 stars I really didn t feel than a minimal like for this book, which is pretty disappointing considering how much I was looking forward to it.In this story, we meet Jordon Woods who plays football for Hundred Oaks High She s on her way to having a stellar season with a team that not only respects her as the captain of the team, but cares for her as a friend 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 I didn t know who Sam versus Henry was until half way through the book, when I found he was the same person DOH 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 In addition, I feel some of the characters suffered from lack of development to such a degree that if you ask me to name than three characters in this book in about a month, I ll be stumped 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 even if it s a girl doing the punching That just rubs me the wrong way So when Jordon punched Sam or Henry in the jaw, I cried FOUL Just not cute or funny I get Jordon was trying to act tough and un girly but there s other ways to achieve that, and hitting punching is not one of them.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.

    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 Yes Is it likely a girl could quarter back for a D 1 school Probably not, but last time I checked this was called FICTION fic tion fik shuhn noun 1.The class of literature comprising works of imaginative narration, especially in prose form 2.Works of this class, as novels or short stories detective fiction 3.Something feigned, invented, or imagined a made up story We ve all heard the fiction of her being in delicate health 4.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 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 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 Also check out the BOOK tune that goes along with Catching Jordan at

    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 I m not sure if the first installment in the Hundred Oaks series filled my expectations, though 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.
