E. L. Shen's The Comeback is a heartfelt, #OwnVoices middle-grade debut about a young girl trying to be a champ—in figure skating and in life. Twelve-year-old Maxine Chen is just trying to nail that perfect landing: on the ice, in middle school, and at home, where her parents worry that competitive skating is too much pressure for a budding tween. Maxine isn’t concerned, however—she’s determined to glide to victory. But then a bully at school starts teasing Maxine for her Chinese heritage, leaving her stunned and speechless. And at the rink, she finds herself up against a stellar new skater named Hollie, whose grace and skill threaten to edge Maxine out of the competition. With everything she knows on uneven ice, will Maxine crash under the pressure? Or can she power her way to a comeback? Set in Lake Placid, New York, this is a spunky yet stirring middle-grade story that examines racism, female rivalry and friendship, and the enduring and universal necessity of love and support.

From the Original Introduction (1910) In this book the author has endeavored to condense some of the mass of material which he has collected during many years of the study and practice of figure skating in the United States, Canada and the skating centers of Europe. Enthusiastic interest and unusual opportunity for comparing the best styles of skating to be found among many nations, due to extended travel during the skating seasons, and the unbounded hospitality extended to him in all parts of the world where skating is looked upon as sport in the best sense of the word, have caused the author to venture on this little volume, which, on account of its convenient size, can be carried about and easily referred to when the learner is on skates. It is with some slight sense of responsibility, therefore, and as a contribution to national interest in a sport which really originated in America, that he endeavors to here set down his analysis of the new, artistic figure skating destined soon to be the standard all over the world.

A woman with an obsession, a man with a weakness, a girl with a dream. This contemporary romance novel series develops around a mother/daughter/young man romantic triangle. The story traces the figure skating career of a Houston pairs team from their rocky startup, working their way up the competition ladder all the way to the Olympics. It depicts the effort and sacrifice that go into, and the agony and ecstasy that emerge from top-level figure skating competition. It contrasts the lifestyle and attitudes of a wealthy family with those of a young middle-class bachelor working his way through graduate school. The quest for a gold medal requires dedication, sacrifice, and resiliance. It is complicated by teenage pique, unspoken desires, emotional demands, and unfair competition. This first book in the series covers the rocky startup and early development of the pairs skating team. Accurate in its treatment of the sport of figure skating, it shows what determined competitors must be willing to do to survive the competition, both on and off the ice. "Passions flare both on and off the ice." "An enjoyable romance on ice. A consistently entertaining work of steamy fun." "Readers who enjoy a fun, light romance will get everything they hope for." "The well-written skating scenes are precise and accurate. Castle knows his way around a rink." - Kirkus review. "Titillating melodrama takes to the ice rink in this story of ambition and exploitation with a vividly portrayed setting." "Kent Castle's well-researched novel explores more than the petty fights that fill the air with tension. Castle relies on his extensive knowledge of figure skating to create a glitzy, exciting setting." "Seduction mingles with humor in riveting scenes between Dean Steele, the experienced skater, and Millie, the mother of the aspiring young skater. They interact, adding a sexual charge by getting physical with each other. Their relationship is titillating" "This down-and-dirty view of competitive ice skating edges into a shock-worthy presentation that ranks high in entertainment value. It is likely an enjoyable tale for fans of this popular sport." - Clarion review. "The pace is fast and keeps the reader engaged. The plot is logical." "This is an adult book with explicit sexual content." - Blueink review.
