Thin Ice

Sarah Lawson

Maddie still can’t believe that she’s headed for the US Figure Skating National Championships. Her life-long dream of becoming an elite competitive skater is within her grasp.

But the demands on her time and the pull to live the life of a normal teenager are tugging her in opposite directions. After her first media interview, Maddie finds out that being in the spotlight has it’s ugly side, leading her to question the life she’s chosen, especially in the age of social media.

Will she dig deep and find the determination and stamina she needs to focus on achieving her dream? Or will the forces working against her win in the end, sending her dream crashing through Thin Ice?

About the author

Sarah was born in Hawaii, far from any skating rinks, but after years of watching skaters on Saturday morning television, Sarah's family moved to New York where she began her first skating lessons and her love for the sport continued. Although Sarah never competed herself, she is a true fan who has made her love of skating into a full time job. In college, she worked part time for a seamstress who sewed skate, gymnastic and dancewear, and her first job out of college was on a publicity team for Disney on Ice. Sarah lives in Connecticut where she enjoys triathlons, gardening and skating on the local ponds in the winter.
