Junior Year Following the Event that Shall Not Be Discussed: Me Blowing the Tennessee State Championship Football Game
Jordan Woods wants to do something special for her best friend Sam Henry for Christmas, but she knows he won't accept the present she has in mind. To make sure Henry doesn't object to her gift, Jordan decides to set up a gift exchange with the entire football team. The problem is that Jordan's teammates tell her flat out that guys don't do Secret Santa.
Set nine months before the events of Catching Jordan, Miranda Kenneally gives a glimpse of true friendship between Jordan, Henry, and the rest of the guys on the team.
What a cute little short this one turned out to be. After finishing Stealing Parker, I was super stoked when I saw someone rate this short story on Goodreads (I believe it was April from Books and Wine) so after a little digging, I found a short story by Miranda Kenneally and read the entire thing.
So this short story takes place before Catching Jordan, Sam Henry and Jordan Woods are just friends and it’s Christmas. Jordan wants to get Sam a gift for Christmas that Sam doesn’t want her to get him. The reason being, they’re super expensive and so Jordan starts plotting to find a way to get the gift to Sam in a way that he’ll have to accept them and that’s where the fun is.
I adore both Jordan Woods and Sam Henry. I loved them both in their book and adored them even more in this little short story. Their friendship is a true friendship and a friendship that I wished Parker from Stealing Parker had in her own life. This was such a cute story, the presents they exchanged, the lengths they went to make the other happy all made me sigh my heart out. I loved it! It was also great to see everyone from Hundred Oaks mentioned and be in this story. Really, I loved it!
…and that’s your scoop!
