Example from the book: Derrick laughed and watched Chris and Bannister eat two ore pieces of pizza.
"I can't go with you guys to get pizza," Chris said sadly.
"There's room for you. we even told Bannister not to come because we want you there. Common your the newest player we need you." whined Derek.
"I just don't belong with you guys," Chris raised her voice a little higher.
"Chris, we all know you want to come so just ride with me. My mom can give us a ride," Derek said smiling and waving Chris to come his way.
"I just don't feel right and plus I just don't want to," Chris's voice got a little louder.
"Chris tell me why you don't want to and if it's a good reason you don't have to go and if it's not then you have to come," Derek barked.
"Because I'm a girl! That's why I don't want to go okay!" Chris yelled.
The whole team heard her including the coach.
Chris SanteChris is the main character in "Hotshot on Ice". She comes into the book when the first practice starts. No one knows that shes a girl and everything thinks shes a guy. Derek one of her best friends is the first to find out that Chris is a girl. Derek then finds a way to tell the whole team without Chris knowing. Chris is smart. She had strategies and ways of doing and sneaking things. She is an outstanding hockey player, which none of the guys like because they know that she is better than them. She doesn't care what other people think of her and just goes with the flow.
There was a lot of similes in the book. This one was the best because the St. Stephan's game was the game depending on if they would go to the championship. -St. Stephan's player plastered Chris up to the boards like a pancake.
Pete's Pizza is the teams hang out. They go there everyday after school and sometimes twice if they have a game. In this part of the book they are describing their pizza they just ordered. -The smell of the greasy melted cheese, the feeling of the oven roasted crust, and Italian music in the background made the perfect supper.
The game the Panthers were playing against William Sport. William Sport though Chris wouldn't be good because she was a girl, but the Panthers showed them. -When Chris scored the game winning goal Derek gave William Sport a smirk and William Sport was a big team of anger.
