I've been wanting to read Catching Jordan since before they changed the name from Score. The cover was adorable and the blurb had me hankering to read it. Now, after having read it, I can totally confirm that Catching Jordan is an amazing book! :D

The characters of Catching Jordan were fantastic! Jordan was an amazing heroine, and she was so strong...physically and psychologically. Just in case you aren't sure about what I mean with psychologically there (and I don't blame you, I'm even a little unsure :P), I mean that she knows what she wants, and she has her mind made up. That being said, she also knows when it's time to change her mind and be open for those changes. Jordan's football teammates were awesome! I loved her relationship with the guys. They respected her, and they were her best friends. It was also pretty adorable when they would stand up for her. Her relationship with her brother was awesome, too. My brother and I are definitely not that close...and I think maybe that's a good thing. I don't really want to start talking about boys with him. :P Anyway, I loved Jordan, and her friends...and now onto her love interests. Oh, Ty, well Ty was gorgeous, sweet, and I liked how his relationship with Jordan changed. I won't tell you those changes, so you'll have to read about them. Then there was Henry. I loved him as her best friend, and again, I'll let you all read the book to see what happens there. :P

The story itself was...awesome. Honestly, it's hard to describe just how different this book is from others out there. Most YA books with sports, football in particular, are male-centric, or if there is a female lead, she's usually a cheerleader or an outcast who loves or pines after a football player. Catching Jordan was completely different.

Meet Jordan, high school football captain, quarterback, and... girl. This book is about football the way Friday Night Lights is about football. Yes, it's there, and it's a big part of the characters' lives. But at its core, this book is about one girl standing up for her dreams and tackling any obstacle thrown in her path -- sometimes successfully, sometimes not. It's about expectations, family, friendships, love, and a healthy dose of straight-up girl power.

And don't even get me started on all those cute football boys. Competitive drive and sexual tension for the win! ;-)

I devoured this book. Anyone who's ever questioned her path in life will connect with Jordan's struggles, missteps, and ultimate triumphs.

I'd read a lot of hype about this book and was really looking forward to reading it. I think the premise is great (though it strains credulity, frankly.) But the execution was weak. Overall the characters and treatment of the various issues were annoyingly superficial.Jordan comes off as incredibly self-absorbed and rather vapid as well, which struck me as ironic as she's relentlessly critical in the book of a particular brainless/sex-crazed cheerleader who's as stereotypical as they get. I also had a lot of trouble buying the love triangle (seriously, does every YA have to have a love triangle????? It's getting old...) The writing is also fairly pedestrian. Here's a sample: "How did I never realize that girls can have just as much fun, and have the same kind of fun, as guys do?" This is when she realizes that she can be friends with girls in addition to guys. Oh my. What a revelation (and again, I really had trouble buying this, that she had never had female friends.)

Spoiler alert: I found Jordan's willingness to go from never having kissed a guy to hooking up with someone within a few days--and continuing to have sex with him once she realizes she has no real interest in him--really distasteful. Overall, I found her a character I couldn't relate to. The pathetic attempts to have her be less one-dimensional by "writing" in her journal didn't work for me at all.

Hey, two things I did like--I thought the dialogue felt very natural. And I loved that Jordan was a girl who could EAT! It makes sense given her size and how much she works out, but I did enjoy hearing about how she satisfied her massive appetite. But then she goes and has a Diet Coke? Really, of any girl who's going to drink a full-sugar coke, it'd be Jordan.

Anyway, if you want a very breezy, beach kind of read, this might work for you. I was just expecting more--and think it's a shame there wasn't.

Format: Paperback
Catching Jordan is a complete break-away from your typical YA romantic novels. Not a single thing about this book could be called ordinary or predictable. Everything - from the characters that defy the usual romantic stereotypes to love story that is concluded in a totally unpredictable way, is fresh, crisp, and completely unputdownable. I went into reading it expecting something along the lines of "She's the man" - a cute, not necessarily ambitious, mildly entertaining romantic comedy packed to the brinks with cheesiness and cliches. What I got, though, exceeded all my expectations. See, Catching Jordan is not only entirely original and impulsively readable, it's also intelligent, gorgeously mood-lifting, and infused with energy so positive that by the time you reach its last page you'll be clapping, dancing, and performing various unpredictable stunts around the house. Or at least grinning like a maniac. How many books can give you such an awesome boost? The answer is: not many!

The main character in this novel is a chick named Jordan. And she's not just any chick, but one that happens to be a kick-ass captain of a high school football team. Physically attractive, strong and athletic, she's a starting quarterback and a role model for her fellow team players. She's tough, persistent and supportive. All the guys on her team treat her with respect and adorable brotherly protectiveness. Jordan loves all the guys on her team but it's a sister-brother kind of love at the very best. Her dream is to get a football scholarship at the University of Alabama, and she's determined to make it happen. Love stories, dating, shaving legs for guys? Jordan is so not interested in all that! At least not until Ty moves to her school.
