In the book, Madison Albright is one of the most confident skaters at the Arctic Circle Figure Skating Club, but the pressure builds as she prepares for the regional championships. A jealous skater is prepared to do whatever it takes to knock Madison from the competition and an old friend turns against her just when she needs her most. Strangers and classmates alike suddenly make her the center of attention. Her stern coach seems incapable of understanding her worries. Her best friend is preoccupied with boy problems. At home, her family expects a big win. In the final days before the event, her confidence begins to unravel and she struggles to succeed in spite of the stress and strain that is competitive figure skating.

Maddie Takes the Ice was recently reviewed by Jo Ann Schneider Farris, Managing Editor of About.com Guide to Figure Skating. Nicolette  received Five-Stars in that review. This book is one of the most accurate and “true to life” books about competitive figure skating. It not only will inspire, but will also give those interested in the sport some insight on what it takes to be a competitive figure skater…..
