Have a boy who loves hockey? Canadian author, Lorna Schultz Nicholson has a wonderful series of hockey books. The first in a series of eight books is INTERFERENCE.

In INTERFERENCE Josh has finally made it to an elite hockey team and is determined to play as well as his older brother Matt. But Josh is so tired all the time. Little does everyone know, Josh’s undiagnosed Type 1 diabetes is working against him- and getting more serious by the day. This story has a great inner and outer goal for Josh, our protagonist. I highly recommend trying this series with a boy who loves sports, but is a reluctant reader. The subject matter is appealing to boys and the reading level is challenging enough, but not too hard for struggling readers. It's very important for us to serve up many reading choices for boys.

These awesome hockey books are written by Lorna Schultz Nicholson. Lorna grew up in St. Catharines, Ontario, and as a child loved to read and write. But then athletics took over and she put it all aside to be a jock. She even went so far as to get her B Sc. in Human Performance from the University of Victoria. With her degree, she worked as the Fitness and Recreation Co-ordinator at UVic where she also coached rowing.
