Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Miranda McClain
Being away from home can be exciting, especially for the first time, but it can also be scary and a little sad. Alicia feels all of those things while she and her classmates from the Victory School, a special school for super athletes, are visiting Triumph Mountain sports-education resort. She is especially missing her mom and dad as the week progresses and even has trouble focusing on her figure skating lessons, but she promised her friend Josh that she would learn so she could start a cheerleading squad for his ice hockey team. When Josh realizes how upset Alicia is about being away from home he arranges a surprise to help cheer her up. Alicia rallies and eventually forms the cheerleading squad because supporting each other is one of the things students at the Victory School do best. The fast pace, short chapters, and colorful Manga style illustrations in the Victory School Superstars books by Sports Illustrated Kids will attract reluctant readers and the glossary in the back helps with vocabulary. There is even information on the sport of figure skating at the back for readers who would like to learn more. Reviewer: Miranda McClain
