Jason loves playing for his Calgary hockey team, but everything changes when he accidentally checks an opposing player from behind.
The player hits the boards hard and is seriously hurt, and Jason faces suspension from the league. Against tough odds, Jason must find a way to prove himself -- to his family, his friends, his teacher and to his team.
Powerful and entertaining, Danger Zone follows the struggle of an underdog -- both on and off the ice. [Fry Reading Level - 3.8

Awards

Winner - Canadian Children's Book Centre Our Choice Selection - 2004

"This tale is convincing and poignantly realistic. Bossley makes the reader deeply sympathize with Jason while not over dramatizing his circumstances and feelings. ... Although, the book is part of a series that is clearly geared principally to boys, the book was a great read for a girl who has never played hockey and rarely watches it! Well written and well paced, this book is excellent for the young hockey fan and a great selection for even the "un-hockey" fan."

- Canadian Review of Materials

MICHELE MARTIN BOSSLEY was born in Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A., but grew up in Calgary from the time she was five. She is the author of numerous children's books, including Taking a Dive, runner-up for the R. Ross Annett Award in Children's Literature, and The Perfect Gymnast, nominated for the 1999 Manitoba Reader's Choice Award. Many of her novels have been Canadian Children's Centre Our Choice selections including Goon Squad, The Winning Edge, and Trapped. One of her more recent books, Pool Princess, has been nominated for a Golden Eagle Children's Choice Award. Michele has been involved in both synchronized swimming and competitive swimming since her teens. She has also coached young swimmers, and draws on much of that experience for her books.
