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.

I wasn't sure if Catching Jordan was going to be for me, since I couldn't care less about sports. The very beginning reinforced this with all of the football talk. Everything went right over my head. However, I was hoping that the story would grab me. Jordan is passionate about football despite her father's lack of support, and she's determined to get a scholarship and go on to play collegiate football. Of course there's also a boy in the picture, who may pose as a distraction to Jordan and her goals. She's also never had a boyfriend before so she's completely out of her element. Unfortunately, I didn't like Jordan so it was hard for me to cheer for her.

I appreciated the author creating a female character that's so far from the feminine norm. While it is mentioned that Jordan isn't as big or strong as her male teammates, she's just as capable as them, and I don't doubt that. I can also understand her not wanting to behave in certain "girly" ways so that her team continues to take her seriously. What I'm not okay with is Jordan putting down feminine interests as somehow inferior to her out-of-the-box ones. I would be fine if she didn't want to put in the effort to paint her nails because she didn't like to (not all girls do!) or because it would just get ruined at practice, or not wearing tight/short/pretty clothes because it's not comfortable, but she refers to it all as "whatever shit [girls] are into" (pg 49). Excuse me?

It's almost as if she thinks putting on a fitted t-shirt and a real bra will suck out her football talent! It also seemed like she didn't even realize that her teammates know that she's girl, so it's okay for her to accept being a girl. At no point do her teammates make any negative comments about her being a girl! Being a girl or girly is not bad.
