Boston College alumna Brigitte Henry Cooper has written four titles for the Game Face series published by Calico, an imprint of Magic Wagon/ABDO Publishing. Cooper’s books, which are geared for readers in elementary and middle school, feature a different girl and different sport in each story. Each girl must face her weaknesses, find her strengths, and navigate the pressures of competition as well as the ups and downs of friendship. The books in the series are: Balancing Act (Louie Lin’s story); STEAM & Ice (Alana O’Brien’s story); Sports Report (Maya Esposito’s story), and Softball Surprise (Rana Parisi’s story).
