Pass, set, hit…Now get ready to block and dig! Volleyball has grown from its origins as a gentle girl's game to the hard-hitting, fast-serving sport it is today. No longer confined to an indoor court, beach volleyball now grabs the spotlight during the summer season, too. With stars such as Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh, the sport's popularity has exploded. So grab a ball and go for a kill! 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
