The Official Adventures
Drop the Puck, Hockey Every Day, Every Way
“A new book in The Official Adventures series is melting hearts across the country with laugh-out-loud fun, playful hockey traditions, and long-lasting friendships among teammates. Drop the Puck: Hockey Every Day, Every Way is the fifth book in the wildly popular series by Jayne J. Jones.
The story tells the tale of Lila, a child with cerebral palsy, who moves to her new hometown and plays for the Minnesota Bears, a special needs hockey team. Lila is wheelchair bound and skates through technology assisted braces. In real life Lila, was one of the series’ first readers and was introduced to the author by Errin Hakstol, wife of NHL Assistant Coach, Dave Hakstol. Through Lila’s mom, the author did research on Lila’s skating ability, her challenges from cerebral palsy and her frustrations with never being invited to a sleepover to simply using a scissors.
More than 15 NHL superstars have endorsed the book series.
“Lila truly has a million-dollar smile,” says Jones, “and I call her the queen of grit and determination.”
The book has three other characters with special needs (Down syndrome, autism and sled hockey) and continues the series traditions of competitive play, joys of winning, lessons of losing and sportsmanship. At the end of the fifth book the children decide to start a community spirit award for inspiring kids making a difference, impact or sharing good will.
The sweet and remarkable tale of Lila’s move to Hockeytown, USA will have all readers cheering for victories big and small, on and off the ice. Grab your hockey stick and shoot for life’s wonderful goals!
Together, we win.
