Review: Stealing Parker by Miranda Kenneally

Publication Date: 1st October 2012

Genre(s): Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance and Chick-Lit

Red-hot author Miranda Kenneally hits one out of the park in this return to Catching Jordan's Hundred Oaks High.

Parker Shelton pretty much has the perfect life. She's on her way to becoming valedictorian at Hundred Oaks High, she's made the all-star 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?

Parker Shelton has the perfect life, a life every young teenage could want. She is making her way to becoming the new valedictorian for Hundred Oaks High School, she has made the all-star softball team her junior and sophomore years and she has a lot of friends that you could ever ask for. But then her mother is involved in a scandal that rocks the whole town they live and the consequences of the scandal fall on parker and her family’s shoulders, with her mother nowhere to be seen.

Parker now has this new life, she quit the softball team, she dropped about twenty pounds in muscle and is a nice petit teenager with a flawless figurer, with the way she looks now she figures she can have her pick at guys, why have one when she can have at three or more. But when the new baseball coach is introduced to her, why would she go for high school boys when she can have her turn at a mature adult who is flirty. 

 This novel was an enjoyable read, it was a sort of quick read but didn’t happen in one sitting. Fans of contemporary novels will like this one. And if you are looking for another character to connect with or another sports-oriented novel to pluck from the shelves at your local book store or Library then Stealing Parker is right up your ally.
