Pairs on Ice by Elizabeth Vollstadt

indie ebook cover

Competitive skater Jamie Bartlett, 12, couldn’t believe her coach’s words. Skate pairs? With Matt O’Connor? She wasn’t a pairs skater. And even if she was, she’d rather eat worms than skate with someone as full of himself as Matt . . . What was Christa thinking?

Jamie’s coach Christa was thinking that Jamie had a better chance of achieving her Olympic dream as a pairs skater than as a single. So Jamie agrees to skate with Matt, even if she has to grit her teeth every time they practice. Their skating is smooth and polished, but their constant battles keep them from becoming a winning team. 
If Matt weren’t enough to deal with, her divorced father tells her he is getting married again. A new stepmother and brother are just what she doesn’t need, especially since she still hasn’t sorted out her up-and-down relationship with her mother. Will her life ever be smooth skating again?

About The Author...

Elizabeth Vollstadt


Elizabeth Weiss Vollstadt has worked as a teacher, editor and writer. Her latest books, Pairs on Ice and Pairs at Nationals, are contemporary middle-grade novels that come from her experiences as a skating mom. Using skating as a backdrop, they showcase issues that any tween could face: the stress of competition, dealing with difficult teammates, bullying, and divorce and remarriage of parents. They also show the joy of success and the satisfaction of working towards a goal. "I have enjoyed writing about characters who can skate the way I always wished I could, she says.
Elizabeth has also published numerous children's stories in magazines such as Highlights for Children and Jack and Jill, and in a variety of anthologies. Her other books include three non-fiction books for teens (Teen Eating Disorders, Teen Dropouts, Understanding Johnny Tremain) and a history of Florida for children (Seeds of a Nation: Florida). Many of her short stories are historical and she especially loves the Revolutionary War period. Her book, Young Patriots: Inspiring Stories of the American Revolution, is a collection of short stories showing events of the Revolution through the adventures of young people.
