Description

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 and is forced to leave all her friends behind. With no other options, Liv must to transfer to the town's public school, Northland, where she'll have to convince their 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 perfect hair and an even more perfect 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 a lot for her new school to accept a former enemy as one of their own and behind that charming smile, Grey is grappling with problems of his own.

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.

Review quote

Praise for Sea Witch "Deftly transforming a fairy tale into a richly layered exploration of culture and relationships."--Publishers Weekly Praise for Throw Like a Girl "Determination and grit mixed perfectly with sass and humor on every turn of the page. With mistakes come lessons, and this story tells it in a way that everyone can relate to."--Abbi Glines, #1 New York Times bestselling author "Henning's dive into Little Mermaid lore is equal parts dark and tantalizing. Like the sea it sings of, this story has a strong pull. I found myself unable to set it down!"--Ryan Graudin, award-winning author of Wolf by Wolf "Mystery and wonder abounds in Sea Witch, and I fell in love with Evie's sharpness and her strong sense of self. Prepare to be lost in these pages for hours on end."--Renee Ahdieh, New York Times No. 1 bestselling author of The Wrath & the Dawn "This spin on The Little Mermaid is full of plot twists and heart-in-throat action. Fans of twisted fairy tales will find plenty to love."--Booklist
