Fast-paced sports action novels that get kids reading.


Jake and his two best friends play road hockey together and are members of the same league team. But some personal rivalries and interference from Jake's three all-too-supportive grandfathers start to create tension among the players. The kids must resolve their differences and learn to work together again if their team is to win a city championship. Deflection! is a humorous take on the pros of teamwork and the pitfalls of well-intentioned adult intervention. [Fry Reading Level - 3.4
