Check, Please. Book 1: #Hockey by Ngozi Ukazu

First off, I am so happy there is a copy of this book in my school’s library.

Two years in the life of Bitty. College hockey player, dynamic vlogger, topnotch baker, crusher on teammate Jack.

Super list of things I loved:

  • A book with an art show, a house party, and hockey checking.
  • Bitty is a character no one will soon forget. He speaks directly to the reader, and most of the time, with his heart on his sleeve.
  • Acceptance. Bitty is hesitant to share his sexuality with anyone at school. But there’s a powerful scene were he comes out to one of his teammates. Very well done!
  • A great cast of characters. From the star senior to the snippy freshmen and the rest of the bros… refreshing group.

Overall, a book I will be happily recommending.
