Check, Please!: #Hockey
wins honors at American Library Association Youth Media Awards


"Ukazu, who began Bitty’s story as an uberpopular webcomic, folds in plenty of hockey terms and highlights team camaraderie while skillfully dismantling themes of toxic masculinity…Volume two can’t come fast enough" Bookliststarred review

"This is a warm story with an irresistible protagonist, a clever supporting cast, and lively and plentiful game and practice scenes... A fun and deeply satisfying read for teens." ―Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Ukazu blends a series of tropes (coming-of-age, coming out, an outsider finding acceptance) into one coherent, amusing tale." ―Publishers Weekly
