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 its 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 just a flawless spiral for Liv to find acceptance in Northland's halls, and behind that charismatic 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.
"Henning offers a fun romance twined with a fast-paced sports story, and a headstrong protagonist who is easy to champion. Liv’s relationship with Grey is the perfect mix of heat and heart, and her acceptance by the all-male football team, refreshingly easy. There is little doubt where the story is headed, but drama both on- and off-the-field propel this feel-good underdog story about a girl who refuses to quit." — Publishers Weekly
