New bullying-themed sports fiction

February 22nd, 2012 by Carrie Gleason

Bullying doesn't only happen in the school yard -- it happens when kids leave school and go to the rink, the pool or the soccer pitch, or even when they go home. It's not always easy to decide what's bullying and what's not. Books can help kids in these not-so-easy-to-figure-out-times to identify bullying.

In two recently released sports novels Making Select (by Steven Barwin) and Breakaway (by Trevor Kew), the bullying behaviour is coming from an unexpected place — the home. In both books, the main character, a hockey player in one and a soccer star in the other, has to identify and then break free of an overbearing parent's influence to decide their own path. How to stand up to an overbearing parent who has a child's best interests at heart is something that these characters have to figure out so they can be their own person -- and follow their own athletic dreams.
