"I'd rather kiss Derek's padded butt than leave the ice right now with everyone thinking that it's too rough out here for a girl."

Seventh grader Joanna Giordano wants to play ice hockey, but the only game in town is the boys' middle school team. Everyone tries to talk her out of playing--from the principal and the coach to the class bully, and even her best friend, Ben. With humor and a feisty spirit, Joanna fights for her place both on and off the ice.
