Description

When a team in an all-girls’ hockey league comes to recruit players, twelve-year-old Lou’s dreams seem to be coming true. But the dreams hinge on one thing: never letting on that Lou is a boy. But the road to stardom is not easy, as Lou discovers that the competition is fierce, and that he’s got a lot of work to do to match the skills of the league’s star player and his chief rival, Albertine Lapensée. All the while, he has to keep his secret, and wrestle with the moral dilemma of taking a place on the team away from a deserving girl.

 

Loosely based on a true story, Lightning Lou is a riveting and thought-provoking story for middle-grade readers.

Editorial Reviews

Lightning Lou is fast-paced, suspenseful, appealing to both boys and girls, and quietly educative about the controversies surrounding World War I and the oppression of women a hundred years ago.” Recommended

— CM Magazine

“An entertaining story.”

— Montreal Gazette

“Featuring strong characters and a nuanced exploration of the many layers of this historical period, Weber pulls everything together in a striking read that is sure to become a Canadian classic.”

— National Reading Campaign

“Based on the true story of Ada Lalonde, a 17-year-old who tried to do what Lou succeeded in doing, this novel will fascinate avid hockey fans, kids interested in a good adventure story, and those with a sense of humour.”
