The final book in the Jessie Mac series was my favorite of the three, but again, the three feel so linked to me (perhaps just because I read them so quickly, all in a row!) that I’m not sure if this is a review of the book or the series.

Jessie is now seventeen, and this girl is miles away from the fourteen-year-old in the first book. She is mature, sensible, considerate, and passionate about hockey. She worries about nutrition and staying in shape for games. All this is a pleasure precisely bec

I'm a fan of local authors so this book was a treat to read as were the others in the series. Living in Estevan, most of the characters I can picture. A great series for young readers with timely topics covered.

Fun, girly hockey story for teens, with a healthy dose of high school drama. Full review to come in Quill & Quire.

As hard as it is to believe, there are some people who have never embraced hockey as a Canadian life focus. I am one such person. My family never watched hockey when I was young. I had no brothers or cousins nearby whose hockey passions I could follow. And although I had friends who watched hockey, girls were not playing hockey when I was growing up. I never even went to my first hockey game until I was in my 20's. So reading and revie

Within 10 pages this book had already brought to the surface one of my pet peeves in literature: girls who use "boy talk" to sound cool, as in "I have to take a leak." While I am not a prude, I just can't possibly imagine a high school girl that I would recommend this to. Perhaps it is the cultural differences of American vs. Canadian teens but this would be a hard sell in my suburban school library. (Disclaimer: we also don't even have a boy's hockey team at our school so an entire series on gi ...more

The Jessie Mac Series 1 4 Feb 07, 2013 06:14PM  
I grew up in Edmonton and Calgary. I started writing horse stories when I was 11 and historical fiction during my high school years. In 1976 I returned to Saskatoon to attend university and graduated in 1980 with an education degree. My first teaching assignment was in Lampman, and I have pretty much been there ever since. I didn’t have much time for writing during the 80’s because I was too busy ...more
