Throw Like a Girl
Friday Night Lights meets Morgan Matson's The Unexpected Everything in this contemporary debut where swoonworthy romance meets underdog sports story.When softball star Liv Rodinsky throws one ill-advised punch during the most important game of the year, she loses her scholarship to her fancy private school, her boyfriend, and her teammates all in one fell swoop. With no other options, Liv is forced to transfer to the nearest public school, Northland, where she'll have to convince their coach she deserves a spot on the softball team, all while facing both her ex and the teammates of the girl she punched... Every. Single. Day. Enter Grey, the injured star quarterback with amazing hair and a foolproof plan: if Liv joins the football team as his temporary replacement, he'll make sure she gets a spot on the softball team in the Spring. But it will take more than the perfect spiral for Liv to find acceptance in Northland's halls, and behind that charming smile, Grey may not be so perfect after all.With well-drawn characters and a charming quarterback love interest who's got brains as well as brawn, Throw Like a Girl will have readers swooning from the very first page.

So, please know when I say that THROW LIKE A GIRL is utter perfection, I well and truly mean it.

In fact, she is kicked out of her prep school for her actions forcing her to attend the local public school. When school begins Liv learns that joining the softball team isn't going to be as easy as she thought. Enter Grey, the injured QB that convinces Liv to play QB just until he heals from an injury and he will get her on the softball team. As Liv begins to enjoy the camaraderie of belonging on the football team she also has to juggle the sexism & prejudice for a female in a male dominated sport. As she gets to know Grey more Liv learns there is more to this boy than she thought and maybe everything is as great as she assumed. Sarah Henning has written a wonderful book that explores sexism, injuries, belonging and love with poise, humor and finesse. Can't wait to read more form this talented author!

    Review copy courtesy of Edelweiss.A good recommendation for girls into sports as the protagonist ends up playing football at the public school she lands in after getting booted from her private school. It was a little hoo-hum and predictable to me.
