Any Way You Slice It
When the bad boy who lives down the street dares her to join the Rink Rats, the local misfit hockey team, she surprises herself and joins in silent defiance of her controlling parents.
The more she plays, the easier it is to keep lying, and soon Pen finds it impossible to come clean. She's sneaking out to practice--and loving every minute of it. It doesn't take long for her to fall in love with hockey...but she's not entirely sure if it's the game she's falling for or the boy. Because it can't last. As soon as her dad finds out, she'll be benched. For good.
And the one thing she IS sure of...she can't stop playing.

"Hot boys on cold ice . . . and pizza to boot! The title is spot-on because any way you slice it, this book is sheer adorable." - Jen Malone author of WANDERLOST
"Cute, sweet story about a high school junior, trying to navigate her way through cute boys, hockey sticks, and a pizza-obsessed family. I read it with a smile across my face the whole time, loving the small town vibe, the crappy hockey team, and the throw-downs between pizza parlors. It really did bring me back to the good ol' days of the brat pack movies . . . which I now am dying to watch once again!" - K.R. Conway, author of the UNDERTOW series
"Penelope is an adorable, spunky girl who readers will root for whether she's on the ice, falling for Jake, working long hours for her family's pizza restaurant, or convincing her dad to let her choose her own path. Hockey, pizza, and romance? Yes, please!" - Kristy Acevedo, author of CONSIDER and CONTRIBUTE
