December Teen Book of the Month – No Stopping Us Now

No Stopping Us Now

No Stopping Us Now

by Lucy Jane Bledsoe

Grades 9+


In 1974, Louisa sets herself a goal to start a girls’ basketball team at her local high school. Up until then, sports were dominated by the boys, sidelining any girl who wanted to play. But now, Louisa and her friends want equal opportunities for girls to be involved in sports. The group’s request to start the girls’ team is met with vicious blowback from the school’s faculty and athletic department. But Lousia is not one to back down and must find the courage to go all-in on achieving her dream to play on the hardwood. With basketball season now warming up, check this book out and get into the game! Based on a true story.
