Another one I just skimmed to the end while everyone else is raving. I had a number of issues with the plot points that felt over-the-top unrealistic (I can suspend disbelief somewhat, but with contemporary fiction, I do expect some realism), but particularly that it felt to me that the theme of this novel was Jordan learning how to be a real girl. Also, I think I'm done reading books involving football, because I always want them to be like Friday Night Lights and they never, ever are. :(
