Penelope Spaulding just can't catch a break. Between long hours at the family restaurant, homework, and her parents' plans for her future, it's hard to find a spare moment to breathe. But when she laces up her skates and steps on the ice, everything slips away...

Racing around the rink allows her to blow off steam after yet another fight with her dad about going to culinary school. So when Jake Gomes, the bad boy who lives down the street, dares her to join the Rink Rats, the local misfit hockey team, she surprises herself and joins in silent defiance of her father and his expectations.

The more she plays, the easier it is to keep lying, and soon Pen finds it impossible to come clean. She’s sneaking out to practice—and loving every minute of it. It doesn’t take long for her to fall in love with hockey…and Jake’s not half bad either. But she knows it can’t last. As soon as her dad finds out, she’ll be benched. For good.

She’s absolutely not going to tell her parents until she’s sure it will be worth the inevitable fight. Not only is she skipping shifts at Slice Pizza while a foodie reality show is on the horizon, but her lies are starting to take their toll on her game. It’s only a matter of time before everything falls apart.

With the team counting on her and with her relationship with Jake on the line, will she have to sacrifice the thing she wants most for the people she loves? Or can she step up and take her best shot?

Hot boys on cold ice…and pizza to boot? The title is spot on because any way you slice it, this book is sheer adorable. - Author, Jen Malone (MAP TO THE STARS and WANDERLOST)

ANY WAY YOU SLICE IT will make you root for the team, hungry for pizza, and dying for that first kiss. - Kristy Acevedo (CONSIDER and CONTRIBUTE) 

Perfect portrayal of small town life, charming characters, pizza, and hockey . . . ANY WAY YOU SLICE IT is a must-read for anyone looking for a sweet romance! - Lindsay Currie (THE PECULIAR INCIDENT ON SHADY STREET)

Adorable sweet romance about a girl balancing family life, sports, and a boyfriend! Tweens and up will enjoy this cute story. The story was well-written with lots of emotion and tension. I loved the relationship Pen (Penelope) had with Slice, the family restaurant. Lots of depth and great backstory to back up what the characters were experiencing. Highly recommend!  - Goodreads Review
