N.N. Light
In the town of Dakota, hockey is a part of life, like breathing. For Millie and Cameron, this couldn’t be truer. Not too long ago, Millie, Cameron and all their friends played on the same team.

Millie and Cameron grew up together and shared many mutual interests. Some even thought them twins. In the small town of Dakota playing hockey was a way of life for girls and boys. The girls and boys played on the same team for many years, but Millie has recently decided to form an all-female team. Now the Dragons and the newly formed Lightning team competed fiercely. The teams argued frequently over who would get to practice at the ice at the pond after school. One day, the crisis could no long ...more

More often than not children relate themselves with the characters of a good story. In such circumstances, reading fiction can help them to get inspiration from the characters. These stories often portray real life implications through anecdotes, and as such makes it easier for them to understand the complex aspects of life. Moreover, reading these stories at regular intervals can actually help them to develop a positive outlook towards life, which eventually p

Millie’s parents made her keep a B average in school otherwise she could kiss hockey goodbye.
She no longer played for the Lightening.
The girls formed an all-female team & called it the Dakota Hurricanes.
The team members are: Millie (captain, center), Georgia (left winger), Ashlyn, Lola (twin daughter/sister, right wing), Daylyn (twin daughter/Lola’s sister), Khloe (goalie), Sage (forward), & Violet (forward).

The Lightning’s hockey team consist of: Cameron (captain), Logan (Millie’s cousin, goa

This is a nice sized tale that's an easy read - and I'm mean that in the best possibly way. It's well written, fun and may even teach adults a thing or two about how to conduct oneself! I really felt for both Cameron and Millie, the two opposing team captains, and they brought back memories of how complicated friendships between boys and girls can become at such a young age. The author is obviously very understanding of this and it explains it well to the reader.
I would definitely recommend this

“Now the casual observer might have accused Millie of being overly dramatic, but in the small town of Dakota, hockey wasn’t just a game. It was a way of life.” 0 likes
“Cameron and Millie hadn’t hated each other at all. They’d actually been best friends. Heck, they were practically siblings. They’d grown up together just as their parents had before them, and because of this, they knew exactly what to say to push each other’s buttons. It made the daily battle for the pond super intense. Like, more intense than a shootout, even.” 0 likes
