So excited, just a few minutes ago Marcus Hahnemann from the Seattle Sounders FC was in the Safeway here in Bellevue, WA (I think he is still there) and I got his autograph 🙂 .
“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 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?
“Nothing takes the taste out of peanut butter quite like unrequited love”
Charles M. Schulz, Charlie Brown in “Peanuts”
Jordan is a girl, but she’s also the quarterback of her High School Football team, she’s used to be focused 100% on the game, until Ty Green appears in the picture and suddenly things change…
This is a sweet story about dealing with your feelings while you are growing up and deciding what to do with your future. Is about love, friendship, dreams, and also about the importance of stand for what you really want and be open to different options in life.
Jordan is talented and strong and I liked her since the beginning. The rest of the characters were really fun to read and my favorites were Henry (Jordan’s best friend and one of her teammates) and Mike (Jordan’s brother, the older brother I would have loved to have).
One of the things that I liked about the story is the great relationship between Jordan and her teammates (all of them were very protective and supportive), also the evolution in the relationship between Jordan and her Dad.
This was an enjoyable book and I would love to see a continuation for Jordan’s story, but for now I look forward to reading the newer book from Miranda Kenneally, “Things I Can’t Forget” that takes place in a Summer Camp.
Since I was in high school I love football (soccer), and I was really happy after find out that here in Seattle there’s a great team, the Sounders.
During this month I had the chance to visit for the first time the CenturyLink Field and I was really impressed and excited, the place is just amazing.
Here are some photos from that day:
