Highlighting girls' volleyball, a sport that has overtaken girls' basketball in popularity, Volleyball Vibe shows how engagement in sports can boost self-esteem, confidence, and foster responsibility and teamwork. The main character, Ria, is a teen girl living in Edmonton, Alberta, whose obsession with beauty and fashion leads her mother to insist that she either get a job or join a team sport. At an age when too many girls stop competing athletically, Ria discovers her own capabilities as well as the rewards of challenging herself and connecting with others on a team.

Ria has a passion for fashion, but her mom thinks Ria needs to find other interests. When Ria's mom tells her it's either babysitting or joining a school team, Ria reluctantly goes out for the volleyball team because ... diapers? Ew! Though she's not very good at the game, Ria soon finds that small improvements in her play start to make her feel good. When team captain Sutton takes a special interest in Ria and helps her train off the court, Ria finds that it might not be so bad being a "sporty type" after all.

KAREN SPAFFORD-FITZ is the author of seven books for children and teens, including Lorimer SideStreets novels Push Back and Saving Grad, both named Resource Links' Year's Best, and Lorimer Sports Story Taking the Lead. While Karen is an avid runner, she enjoyed relearning all she knew about volleyball from the years when her daughters played and her husband coached. Karen lives in Edmonton, Alberta.
