Omg. That book was pretty awesome. So after Hooked I wasn’t too eager to read books based on a relationship but after seeing a review on Little Book Star, I decided why not? Catching Jordan was pretty damn awesome because:
1) Jordan is badass
2) No instalove (thank god)
3) Did I mention that Jordan is badass
So Jordan Woods is the quarterback in her school’s football team. That’s right. Her as in she’s a girl. But she’s just one of the guys in her team’s eyes and her own. She’s the best part of the story. The only part where I didn’t like the book was around the middle and a bit of the end where she was dealing with her chaotic love life and acting like a girl. But I guess I don’t know how normal girls deal with guy issues – the closest I’ve gotten is when I read an awesome bit with Adrian in it and then he’s gone 😦
I loved the plot. It’s not your typical fall in love with the hot new guy story. Oh no. This is the hot new guy is cute but maybe he’s not the one for me story. The emotions in this story is just amazing.
Then there’s the poem parts. They were just the icing on the cake. Somehow the poems managed to be simple yet reflect Jordan’s emotions in just a few short sentences. I think the poems are what give the book the emotion and feelings that allowed me to connect with Jordan’s character who is literally my complete opposite.
Overall Catching Jordan was a good read. I admit, there were some parts I had to just stop and think “no, you idiot” but other than that it was a fun, emotional read.
