Hockey Girl Loves Drama Boy by Faith Erin Hicks

Publisher Information:  First Second, 2023


It should have been a night of triumph for Alix’s hockey team. But her mean teammate Lindsay decided to start up with her usual rude comments and today Alix, who usually tries to control her anger, let it finally run free. Alix lashes out and before she knows it, her coach is dragging her off Lindsay, and the invitation to the Canada National Women’s U18 Team’s summer camp is on the line.

She needs to learn how to control this anger, and she is sure Ezra, the popular and poised theater kid from her grade is the answer. So she asks for his help. But as they hang out and start to get closer, Alix learns that there is more to Ezra than the cool front he puts on. And that maybe this friendship could become something more…
