Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Many young boys and girls today still dream of ice skating their way to the Olympics, the goal that pushes them to endure years of practice, sacrifices and injuries—and such is true of fourteen-year-old Amy. Like figure-eights, the story twists and circles around happenings in the lives of most young teens today—family, school, goals and the opposite sex, each of which shapes up crisply for the Canadian teen until she injures her ankle on the ice. It is then that Amy spins out of control by covering up the incident and suffering alone. What stops her downward spiral and makes her skate better than ever is her fear of re-injury on the ice. Taking off a tenth of a point because of the extent of Amy's deceit and lies, this judge gives author Bossley a 9.9. 2000, James Lorimar & Company Ltd, . Ages 8 to 13. Reviewer: Patricia Timbrook
