Chasing A StarBook - 2009
Ages 9 years & over. When Sophie LaGrange hears that her idol, Olympic gold medal winner Barbara Ann Scott, is coming to town to star in the Hollywood Ice Review in the autumn of 1951, she can't wait to meet the famous figure skater. But when Sophie's mother says they can't afford the tickets for the show, Sophie plots to meet Barbara Ann some other way. Sophie's older brother Joseph has seen Barbara Ann practising at the hockey arena, so Sophie tries to sneak into the arena to catch a glimpse of Barbara Ann. But Sophie is not the only one hanging out at the arena -- the Satan's Rebels motorcycle gang has a meeting spot nearby. It seems that Sophie is running into the infamous gang members everywhere, and they are not a friendly bunch! Sophie is horrified when she discovers that the Rebels are trying to recruit Joseph, and to make matters worse, Sophie hears about an awful plot that would harm Barbara Ann. How can Sophie save her? What can she do to stop her brother from joining such a dangerous gang? Included also is an appendix with information about the career of Barbara Ann Scott and photos of her skating.
