It was like watching a train wreck about to happen. What also really got to me was all the people in her life that turned on her after her mom came outespecially her church.
Its one of my biggest problems with some churches and with people who claim to be Christian, how utterly ugly they are to other human beings. It gets my blood boiling, so lets move on before I start throwing f-bombs on this review. I was also really disappointed with the adults in Parkers life.
Way to be there, guys! I cant believe nobody thought it strange or thought to talk with Parker about what shes been going through, or why she quit playing softball so suddenly. Her feelings of abandonment came through so clearly and loudly. I had a lot of feelings with this book, ok!
And like Parker questions, why do all those wrong things feel so good?! And it was awful yall and I felt so awful for her. Not him. He shouldve known better. Who Parker does actually end up with is actually a little bit harder to pinpoint at the very beginning. You meet the boys in the book, and while you think it might be the best friend, if youve read Catching Jordan you know it wont be him, so it leaves us wondering if the coach thing is really what were going with.
I liked the slow development of this aspect of the story a lot because, for me, it gave some unpredictability, which is always nice.
Overall I completely loved this story because of how real it felt. I really love the authenticity and the honesty in Mirandas writing. I seriously cannot wait to read more from her.
Heavier yet enjoyable Hundred Oaks book! Stealing Parker focuses on another group of characters but with cameos from Catching Jordan characters.
Not going to lie, I need to remember names better, ha. It took me a second to remember who was who. Similar to book one, Kenneally blends sports, relationships, and heavier topics into a fast paced compelling read. This book focuses on Parker's relationship with baseball and softball. Parker walked away from softball after her mother left her father.
The event rocked her world in a rough way. Parker is faced with gossip, a lack of support from friends, and an overall sense of less. Stealing Parker felt heavier to me than Catching Jordan. The reaction Parker's church and friends had to Parker's mother's sexuality was not an easy read. Parker need support and instead she had most everyone turn their backs on her or give her the cold shoulder.
The struggle Parker faces when questioning her church and her personal relationship with God was brutally honest and emotional. Kenneally did her justice in her portrayal of the difficult situation Parker was facing. Aside from the religious aspects , Parker also fell into a complicated romance.
While Parker stumbles and makes some mistakes, she stays strong; she learns and grows throughout the course of the book. My primary reasoning behind the three star rating has to do with the romance. Parks of the romance I just did not really like. Stealing Parker was a heavier yet still enjoyable addition to the Hundred Oaks series.
I will caveat this book though: If religion and religious struggles are not for you, then this might not be the book for you.
She's on her way to becoming valedictorian at Hundred Oaks High, she's made the allstar softball team, and she has plenty of friends. Then her mother's scandal rocks their small town and suddenly no one will talk to her.
Now Parker wants a new life. So she quits softball. Drops twenty pounds. And she figures why kiss one guy when she can kiss three. Or four. Why limit herself to high school boys when the majorly cute new baseball coach seems especially flirty? But how far is too far before she loses herself completely?
Praise for Catching Jordan:"A mustread for teens! I couldn't put it down! And the formula works. Parker Shelton considers herself a good Christian girl; she is a talented athlete, a churchgoing virgin, and the valedictorian of her class. But while she should be worry free, the drama has just begun. To start with, Parker's flirtatious ways have resulted in a notso-favorable reputation.
I hung out with this guy Aaron on the swings at the playground, listening to him talk about how much his school sucks he goes to Woodbury High and how Nirvana really is the best band ever. Before he drove home with his parents, I let him kiss me beside the turtle sandbox thing, so people will know I like boys. Would you rather retire or work your whole life? I love the outfits. Golf or polo? I like animals much more than speedos.
Coach did his homework. How I should always have the coolers filled with ice water before practices start, and how I should make sure the buckets by the pitching machines are loaded with balls. Drew snorggles at the mention of balls. I elbow him.
He glances at Drew, then back to me. I kissed Matt Higgins behind a barn last night. I smooth my curve-enhancing blue fleece. The only thing I never bother fixing is my tangled waist-length brown hair.
It may sound gross, but my hair looks good tangly—guys love it. Coach tells Drew to warm up, so he runs off, his cleats clacking on the asphalt. Get over here! He must truly love baseball to smile in degree February weather. He tosses away his batting helmet and runs his fingers through the brown waves of his hair before pulling his cap from the back pocket of his baseball pants.
Yeah, yeah. I fight the urge to roll my eyes. Not that he ever dates. He nearly became valedictorian instead of me. He kept trying to go up my shirt. I do kiss guys a lot. I do want a boyfriend.
We had our diapers changed together. She enjoys knitting and cooks him breakfast for dinner. I scoop up the ball, wind my arm, and hurl it from the parking lot and over the fence to shortstop.
His tan face is thin with stubble and a strong jaw. Dark curls sneak out from under the brim.
