Seventh-grader Joanna Giordano wants to play ice hockey, but the only game in town is the boys' middle school team. Everyone tries to talk her out of playing--from the principal and the coach to the class bully, and even her best friend, Ben. But Jo is as determined as she is talented, and even a grandfather with Alzheimer's and a father who needs anger-management classes can't stop her from getting in the game.

About the Author:

Dawn FitzGerald lives in Ohio with her husband and two children. She teaches high school English and―as Coach Fitz―coaches the girls' varsity soccer team.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-7 -Joanna Giordano prefers ice hockey to figure skating and is determined to make her middle school team. Despite opposition from the other athletes (all male), the coach, the school principal, the father of her friend Ben-also trying out for the team-and many of the other seventh-grade girls, she perseveres and does indeed make the cut. Ben also makes it, but his desire to fit in with the other boys leads him to turn away from Jo. She also has to deal with her parents' separation, caused largely by her father's inability to control his temper, and her grandfather's progressive Alzheimer's symptoms. Jo manages to handle the various pressures and performs well on the ice when given a chance to get in the game, earning kudos from the coach and even a grudging compliment from her chief tormentor. Jo is a believable teen, albeit wise beyond her years, with a supportive mother, an older brother, and a friend who help her cope with a set of problems that might well make a lesser mortal throw in the towel, or at least hang up her skates. The rushed pace of the final chapter and a half is disappointing in an otherwise acceptable work of sports fiction.-Elaine Fort Weischedel, Milton Public Library, MA
