Title: Cinderella In Skates
Author: Carly Syms
Rating: 3 Shooting Stars

Natalie Melter hates that her family made her leave sunny Arizona to move to Wisconsin but she’s even more upset that her dad, a former hockey player, tells her that she can move back to Arizona in the summer only if she makes her school's hockey team.

Natalie doesn't know the first thing about standing up on a pair of ice skates, but life in snowy Wisconsin is about to get a whole lot more interesting when the cute college hockey player next door decides to teach her the sport he loves.

Will Natalie put it together in time to make the team or will Shane be a distraction she can’t ignore?



Cinderella In Skates is a young adult short sports romance. It starts out with Natalie moving to Wisconsin from Arizona in the middle of her senior year high school. Her dad use to play hockey at the college in the town they move to, and now he's going to be a teacher there. So he makes a deal with Natalie that if she can get on her high school hockey team she can go back to Arizona come summer. Natalie agrees but she has to have Shane her dad's friend, and neighbor's son, who also plays college hockey teach her how to play because she has no idea what she's doing. Hence the romance part of the book. Now there were a few things that bothered me in the story. Like for instance the fact that Natalie keeps wanting to go back to Arizona claiming that is her "home" even though she doesn't keep in contact with any of her friends she left behind, and she didn't have a boyfriend there, and she also doesn't have her main family members there. So I did not understand that at all. Then Shane does something that really bothered me, but I understood where he was coming from. And I hoped because he did that, and then what he does towards the end, Natalie would get off of her Arizona kick. But she doesn't. So I will say this book wasn't good, and wasn't bad, it was just okay.
