Full Text Reviews:

School Library Journal - 02/01/2018 Gr 4–7—A part of the "Jake Maddox" collection, these middle grade books are focused on female athletes who share a passion for their sports. Tamaya Jackson is the captain of her gymnastics team in Aerials and Envy. After a local news station makes her the center of their segment on the team, she must learn how to share attention and be a good teammate. In Catching Confidence, bookish Ana finds herself fascinated by softball after seeing a college team play. When she does not earn a spot on her school's team, she must gain confidence and work with a combative teammate. Each story is balanced between detailed descriptions of the athletics and interpersonal relationships with team members, though the plots can occasionally be slow-paced. The books, which are written at a third grade reading level, include a glossary of sports terms, discussion questions, writing prompts, and additional information about the sport. VERDICT With diverse, relatable characters, this series can fill the gap in many collections for appealing hi-lo sports titles directed towards girls. - Copyright 2018 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
