"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week I'm waiting on....
Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally.
Here's the Goodreads blurb:
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 now there's a new guy in town who threatens her starting position... suddenly she's hoping he'll see her as more than just a teammate.
Why I need to read this one:
My friend was actually the starting varsity quarterback for my high school senior year, and yes, she was a girl. Unfortunately she broke her ankle before the season started, so she was unable to play, but something about this book makes me think of her. I love football and I love strong women who blow apart gender stereotypes ... while still falling in love.
Catching Jordan will be released 12.1.2011 by Sourcebooks Fire
