Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jennifer Lehmann
Tess cannot wait to get back to Winterfall. She and her parents have moved to River City, but she is surprising her best friends, Ana and Sofie, by coming back in time for the annual snowboarding competition. Tess has always won her age group before, and she wants to be the first city kid to take the title. Sofie, though, is not as happy to see Tess as she expected. Sofie has her own hopes for the snowboarding competition, and Tess finds some difficult choices between her plans and her friendships. The plot and characters are straightforward, but well-developed. Tess and her friends are likeable and easy to identify with. This book will be of special interest to those involved in snowboarding, but the situations will be familiar to many girls. This leveled reader will be useful in upper elementary classrooms with students reading below grade level. The story is interesting enough for individual reading, but the glossary, discussion questions, and writing prompts in the back allow it to easily be used in the classroom. Reviewer: Jennifer Lehmann
