Review: Catching Jordan

Goodreads description: 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 Green 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?

So, first of all, I had high expectations for this book. Unfortunately, they were not met. I had heard Catching Jordan was really good. To me, it was just good. 

I love the idea around this book, and I love how the author brings the Hundred Oaks football team alive. I did not, however,  get the whole Ty and Henry thing. I did not really get or like Ty at all. And the back cover makes it sound like it is all about Ty. Well, we also have Henry, who is a big part of the story. I admit that I really liked Henry most of the time. He made me laugh.

I actually really liked the whole team except for Ty. They supported Jordan even when she was a girl. The whole girl issue was another good part of the book. Her dad doesn't want her to play because she is a girl, and neither do most colleges. But, the thing is, she is better at ball than most guys! This is true for real life too. Girls who play sports sometimes get underestimated, or ignored.

I am going to give this book 4 cases. I liked it. I had fun reading it. I was not blown away by it or even very invested though.  

4/5 bookcases
