Stealing Parker by Miranda Kenneally...

Series: Hundred Oaks (Book #2)
Published: October 1st 2012 by Sourcebooks Fire

Rating: 5 stars
Age Recommendation: -


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?


I had high expectations going into this book because I had really enjoyed the first novel in the series "Catching Jordan" so I was excited to see that I would enjoy it as much as the first and if it would live up to my expectations which it did.

The plot. I really enjoyed the plot, I loved the forbidden romance and seeing how that played out as well as seeing how Parker's relationships developed with her friends and family throughout the book and how she dealt with the things that were happening in her life whether they be good or bad. I thought that the pacing of the story was really great and it had me turning page after page because I had to see what happened next in the story.

The characters. I loved Parker's character, I thought that she was really realistic and I loved her voive throughout the whole story. I really enjoyed seeing how she grew into her own person and started to do the things that she needed to do to for herself and how she took the courage to mend her friendhips and tried to make her wrongs right.
The other charcters that I liked in this book were Drew and Will, I thought that they were great character written really realistically and they both had their own issues to deal with which I got to see play out while reading the book. I thought that they were both really great friends to Parker, even though they weren't there when she needed them most they overall were still great friends to her.
The one charcter that I didn't like in this book was Brian, sure at first I liked him but as his realationship with Parker started to become more serious it showed who he truly was.

Overall I loved this book and I thought that it was a great summer read and a book that I will be reading for years to come.
