Waiting on Wednesday (103)

Throw Like a Girl
By: Sarah Henning
Release Date: January 7, 2020
Publisher: Little Brown Books for Young Readers

Book Synopsis:

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.

Why I'm Eagerly Waiting:

I love a good young adult contemporary sports romance.  One of my favorite authors in this category/genre is Miranda Keneally.  I have missed her books so much, and when I read the synopsis for Throw Like a Girl, it gave me similar vibe.
What Are You Waiting On?


  1. I'd say sports fiction is my favorite genre. Sports Romances in YA that contain actual sports are so rare. Especially a male dominated sport, on an all male team.

  2. I love sports romance, college or high school, so I am putting this on my TBR list. Thanks!

  3. So much yes. I highlighted this one not too long ago AND put it on my TTT yesterday. I keep hoping the universe will reward me with an ARC approval, but his pub never really shows me any love. --sigh-- This is such a "me" book too. I really hope I get to read it.

    1. I'm crossing my fingers too Sam, but I probably won't get either. It looks so good though! I can't wait to read it :)

  4. couldn't help but smile at the title. i do like a good sports story. hope you enjoy it
