Despite her impressive hockey skills, Kyla Woodson's first year of high school isn't going as planned. The varsity team didn't recruit any freshmen, so she's stuck on JV -- unless she can impress the coach enough to be added to the roster mid-season. But with an old rival also vying for a spot on varsity, plus dealing with her parents' recent divorce and her mom's irritating new boyfriend, Kyla has more to worry about than just her game and fights to keep her temper in check. As the pressure mounts, will Kyla be able to keep her cool -- off the rink and on it -- and skate to win? A glossary, writing prompts, discussion questions, and bonus hockey facts make this action-packed sports story as engaging and educational as it is exciting.
