Volleyball Vibe (Lorimer Sports Stories)

by Karen Spafford-Fitz (Author)

Reading Level: 4th – 5th Grade
Highlighting girls' volleyball, a sport that has overtaken girls' basketball in popularity, Volleyball Vibe shows how engagement in sports can boost self-esteem, confidence and foster responsibility and teamwork. The main character, Ria, is a teen girl whose obsession with beauty and fashion leads her mother to insist that she either get a job or join a team sport. At an age when too many girls stop competing athletically, Ria discovers her own capabilities as well as the rewards of challenging herself and connecting with others on a team.
