I was sent this book by the publisher to read and review. All thoughts are my own! Thank you to Simon & Schuster for sending me this book to read and review!
Tomorrow, the Wildcat varsity field hockey squad will play the first game of their new season. But at tonight’s team sleepover, the girls are all about forging the bonds of
trust, loyalty, and friendship necessary to win.
Everything hinges on the midnight initiation ceremony—a beloved tradition and the only facet of being a Wildcat that the girls control. Until now.
Coach—a handsome former college player revered and feared in equal measure—changes the plan and spins his team on a new adventure. One where they take a rival team’s mascot for a joyride, crash a party in their pajamas, break into the high school for the perfect picture.
But as the girls slip out of their comfort zone, so do some long-held secrets. And just how far they’re willing to go for their team takes them all—especially Coach—by surprise.
We Are the Wildcats was a really cute read! I didn’t really know anything about field hockey before reading this book but found it very enjoyable. The girls story was a treat to read about and I found that I read this book in two sittings! Overall, if you’re a contemporary sports fan I highly recommend this book.
