When pushed to join a girls' hockey team, twelve-year-old Bea doesn't know what's worse: falling on the ice or falling for her teammate. BEA MULLINS TAKES A SHOT is a 50,000-word LGBTQ+ MG novel for fans of Sidetracked by Diana Harmon Asher and Almost Flying by Jake Maia Arlow.
After a string of bad experiences with team sports in the past, Bea vows to get through middle school by sticking to the sidelines. But when her school's gym floods, and her parents push her to join an extracurricular sport to make up for it, she finds herself wobbling across the rink on an underdog ice hockey team instead.
To Bea's surprise, she not only starts caring about the team, but also falls for the star player, Gabi. When the team comes up short on league fees, Bea wants to help—but after her #HockeyFails are made into an embarrassing viral video, she feels like she's let her teammates and her crush down. Now, if Bea is to stand any chance at saving her team before it gets disbanded, she'll have to face her insecurities on the ice—and her crush on Gabi.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
