Who has the best ice-hockey team - the girls or the boys? Hockey Wars by Sam Lawrence and Ben Jackson is a thrilling action chapter book. Although intended for children from ages 8 to 12, younger hockey fans will also get a kick out of the feud between the two hockey teams, the Lightning and Hurricanes. Cameron and Millie, friends from a very young age, have recently become sworn enemies. As captains for opposing teams who must play against each other for the right to use an outdoor pond to train on, their relationship is threatened. Which captain will lead their team on to victory? And will Cameron and Millie realize in time that by winning they might be losing something more important than a hockey game?
Sam Lawrence and Ben Jackson have written a fast-paced story that builds in momentum, hurtling young readers towards a satisfying ending, while teaching them the value of friendship. Hockey Wars, all about high-octane excitement for hockey fans, is also a character-driven chapter book showing the growth and development of Millie and Cameron as they realize that winning may cost them more than the loss of an ice-hockey pond. The book's characters ring true to young readers as they behave in ways consistent with their age and context. Millie is strong, Cameron determined, and the rest of the characters believable and engaging. Hockey Wars draws readers irresistibly into the story while teaching a valuable life-lesson in the most natural and compelling way. Don't read it because you're a hockey fan, but simply because you're a fan of great children's fiction! I thoroughly enjoyed this book. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

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, goalie), Luke, Hunter, Linkin Marsh, Ben, Rhys, Preston,
Both girl/boy kids on the hockey teams went to Dakota MS.
Cameron still ran the Lightening Hockey team.
Millie, & Cameron are going to play each other to see who’s the best hockey team in Dakota.
It was time for the game to begin. Jon (HS), & Bev (HS) would officiate/ref the hockey game.
Will the girls or boys win?
I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review. Only an honest one.
A very awesome book cover, great colored pictures & proper font & writing style. A very well written MS age hockey adventure story book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great hockey adventure movie, an animated cartoon, or better yet a mini TV series. To be continued. A very easy rating of 5 stars.

It's definitely aimed more toward middle school kids but I don't have any problems reading it to a younger kid. In fact, I enjoyed it too. I've already pre-ordered the sequel!

I would definitely recommend this to everyone, even if, like me, you've never played ice hockey and don't really understand the rules. This isn't really about the game, but more of a heartfelt story about some of the toughest, earliest of life's lessons that we are all confronted by at some stage or other.
5 stars well earned!
