This book got me so excited for the Winter Olympic Games which are just around the corner! One of my favorite parts of any Olympics are the athlete spotlights that they do so you can get to know the athletes. The characters in this book felt like Olympian spotlights to me. Well, a more extended version and a bit more personal, but still.
Harper and Alex are both competing for a spot in the Olympics. They have both been training and working for this goal practically their whole lives- Harper in hockey and Alex in ice dancing. They become friends when they room together for training and it's a friendship to last a lifetime.
This book was really like getting two stories in one. The narration bounces back and forth between Harper and Alex so you get to know each girl separately and together as they interact with each other. Each girl had a distinct voice and personality.
It was easy to picture the girls in their athlete settings because I've watch a lot of ice skating and hockey over the years. The book flowed well. There was nothing overly intense or surprising here but it was a fun book and I really enjoyed reading it. It's what I would call a fluffy diversion. :)
