“I try but fail to wash the loss out of my hair- Garnier Fructis can only do so much.”– Sarah Henning
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 its 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 just a flawless spiral for Liv to find acceptance in Northland’s halls, and behind that charismatic smile, Grey may not be so perfect after all.
With lovable characters and a charming quarterback love interest, Throw Like a Girl will have readers swooning from the very first page.
A YA contemporary romance that revolves around sports. Wow. This did not disappoint. I had my reservations about it at first. Especially in the beginning.
Once Liv joined the football team I couldn’t help but root for her. I couldn’t help but admire the way she handled all the animosity directed at her from the other football players.
The girl power in this book is amazing and had me rooting for all the female characters. I could not help but appreciate the strong bond between all the softball girls. Man these girls are LOYAL.
However, it melted my heart to finally see one of Liv’s enemies warm up to her and vise versa.
The author had a way of making all the characters not only likable but relatable as well. In the end I was rooting for and loving all the characters. I don’t think I have read a book where 95% of the characters are genuine and likable. By the end of the book I was even rooting for the rude a**hole ex.
Overall, this is such a sweet, empowering read that I fully support!
