What does this time of year mean to you?

What does it mean to the sports fanatic? Of course, it's hockey playoff season again (which happens as spring is warming, as the mind shifts to all sorts of sports, indoor and outdoor — and we have those covered too!).

Regardless of the sport, girls and boys face many of the same problems — rivalry, competition, bullying — and they learn the importance of teamwork. But all things are not equal and gender discrimination can be a reality that girls have to deal with.

Being a girl in a "guy’s world," shifting from an all-girls team to a mixed gender team or vice versa can bring on big challenges. In some circles, the age-old argument of women being the weaker sex is still prevalent, at times used quite openly.

These four sports fiction books deal with gender in sport. Click on the cover to read a story summary.
