Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally – review | Children’s books | The Guardian

These characters were overall ridiculous and beyond realistic. This book talks a lot about sexism and how hard it is for women to be appreciated equally as men even if they are as good or even kordan then them. Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands.

Sexism due to fact Jordan is nordan female football player and a super special snowflake. Most girls are quite catty when it comes to other girls that make them feel threatened. Since Jesse’s Girl is due for publication, I thought this would be the prefect time to re-read the entire Hundred Oaks series, and my Book Depository voucher joradn me on purchasing physical copies. Is it likely a girl could quarter back for a D-1 school? East Dane Designer Men’s Fashion. She hit Harry so hard that his jaw cracked, and she laughed about it, along with him.


Next, I was bothered by the way Pop Warner Football and Cheerleaders in general were portrayed in this book. You can also subscribe without commenting. Looks like a fun teen book. Until Ty Green is transferred. But, I think girls should also be feminine, should be respected and treated like ladies.

And best of all? There were some laugh-out-loud moments in the book whenever it focused on what these kids were learning or not learning, as the case may be in school. Catching Jordan is a book that has a lot to offer. Jordan is one of the most kick ass quarterbacks in Tennessee. The end result was stunning, and while she didn’t exactly make me want to pick up a ball and run around the field with a bunch of jocks, I might actually watch some games on TV, and whenever I will, I will think of Catching Jordan.

One day she’s shying away from Ty’s kisses to demanding his ownership of a condom the next. I really wish Miranda Kenneally would write a sequel. Sure, things would get a little overly testosterone-y, but it’s kind of sweet if you think about it. For example, there is a very funny ongoing scenario with Jordan and Sam having to care for a fake baby for home economics class.

May 11, Katie McGarry rated it it was amazing. Too many stereotypes and misconceptions were thrown out there for me to just let it slide. Which is totally fine with me, as a reader.


She had to be the special snowflake.

This book was so damn fun to read! She can’t talk to any of the boys about this and she hates the cheerleaders, what does she do?

I found this read refreshing. When they had their sleepovers and they mirana snuggle, it was so cute. But her ultimate best friend is Sam Henry.

Henry has quickly become one of my favourite literary crushes; he was so sweet; in the fake electronic baby assignment and he showed he had a big heart as he was always looking out for Jordan. Jordan’s father is the great Donovan Woods.

Review: Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally

And so Jordan comes up with a plan. Only what I see on movies and books and sometimes ESPN, but I still liked this book with all the football talk and references.

Add to that Jordan suddenly finds out why Henry’s last girl-friend broke up with him, and now she’s really confused.
