Zanballer based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Suzanne ¿Zan¿ Hagen is not happy with baton twirling lessons in Phys. Ed. She wants to play football. But, the principal of her High School doesn¿t support her ideas and thinks she is un-feminine in the activities she wants. Added to this is the fact that the football coach tells her that no girls will play on his team. This does not stop this determined young lady. She takes it on herself to encourage and fire up many other girls and starts her own team. She talks a friend of hers into helping her coach and set up plays. As they gain notoriety an opportunity comes for them to play against the JV Boys team. While the girls are all teased by the other High School athletes they take it in stride and overcome the peer pressure and do what they set out to do in the first place. Another one of my all time favorite books, from my early teenage years. Back in the 70¿s when this came out Zan was a girl that many looked up to as she was going against the mold of a ¿young woman¿. She had guts and she figures out how to get what she wants while still being who she was all along. The book still holds true for many areas today.
