"In terms of plot quality, (this) is definitely the high scorer. A strong subplot is interwoven with the main story. Hat Trick is recommended and would be a useful addition to school and public libraries."
"(Hat Trick) includes enough detailed and spirited game action to capture the interest of young hockey fans and players, especially girls."
"Covers many of the problems and challenges of being a young teen in Canada today: separated parents, conflicting cultural traditions, and trying to follow her own love of hockey in a world where boys are accepted, and girls are not....The uphill struggle for self-confidence, self-knowledge, and acceptance of her skills and limitations are well described...Recommended."
