Nomination: Queens of the Ice

Adams, Carly.  Queens of the Ice: they were fast, they were fierce, they were teenage girls.  2011.  131p.  James Lorimer and Company, $9.95 (9781552777206).  Gr 5-8.  (AW)

The Preston Rivulettes were the stars of the Canadian ice in the 1930’s.  They found great success in a very male-centric sports culture, despite hurdles of sexism and the financial woes of the Great Depression.  The book’s play-by-play style brings the fast action of women’s hockey to life.
