  LOVE IT! , 12/16/2010
Reviewer: Stephanie Segrest
I have to say that I absolutley loved the second story of Jackie! After reading the Freshman Season I couldn't wait to see how Jackie grew up and how she evolved as a high school hockey player and young lady. The story was very entertaining and I found myself reliving my field hockey days through Jackie. She brought back so many memories and made me smile every time I read. This story is one that has a special meaning to any athlete trying to find her way, but we all can root for Jackie and spend some time in her shoes as a sophomore in high school. I can hardly wait for the next book in Jackie's story!

  Great Read! , 12/25/2010
Reviewer: Casey Hanna
Whether or not you are a high school field hockey player, First Year Varsity is a story that anyone can relate too. Marino captures the uncertainty of playing on a high school team, as well as the complexities of high school friendships and relationships. This book not only helped me get through playing field hockey my sophomore year of high school, but also guided me through situations with my friends and classmates that I wouldn't have been able to face on my own. This book should not only be read by high schoolers, but also by adults, hopefully helping them gain a better understanding of my generation.
