Do you dream of flying down the slopes or flipping through the half-pipe? Every four years, the world tunes in to watch the women of winter take the stage at the Olympics. Skiing and snowboarding have become more and more popular as stars from Suzy Chaffee and Tina Basich to Lindsey Vonn and Lindsey Jacobellis have proved that the girls can compete as hard as the boys. So don't let the good powder go to waste - get out there and hit the slopes! The history, the rules, and the heroines: these nonfiction accounts of women's sports relate the interesting insights of each sport, including the rules, game play, and standout athletes. Girls looking for role models as well as the "hows and whys" of their favorite game will find the answers in these fresh, accessible titles. Part history, part biography, and part instruction, Girls Play to Win allows readers to access "everything they want to know" about the game. More than an introduction, this series takes what is likely an existing interest and allows the reader to delve deeper. Content consultants are real-world experts that include Olympic athletes and coaches. Library Media Connection's Editor's Choice
