Lori Weber’s new book for middle-grade readers, Lightning Lou, has been published by Dancing Cat Books. The book follows the story of Lou Lou, a passionate hockey player who will do anything to get onto a team. When the coach of a newly formed women’s team, The Montreal Bakers, comes calling, Lou jumps at the chance to move to the big city and play on a real team, one that will rival the Cornwall Victorias. The only catch is that Lou is hiding a big secret. The book is set to the backdrop of World War One and the Quebec conscription crisis.

Lightning Lou was recently featured in CBC Books and the Montreal Gazette


Granny has always dreamed of playing hockey. As a child, she could only watch the boys play on the lake until her mom called her home to do more chores. Now, her granddaughter wheels her to the park, where Granny watches the kids play at the rink. One day, the doctor says Granny should take it easy, but she disagrees. So does her granddaughter. She knows that what Granny needs to perk her up is a chance to take a shot on net. With the help of the boys and girls on the ice, Granny finally fulfills her dream.

“In classic Simply Read Books fashion this book is equal parts beautiful and charming with a dash of heart…This may just become a classic Canadian Hockey Picturebook and is certainly a great idea for a gift to a girl who plays hockey, perhaps a gift from a grandparent – or, I think that it could be used to approach the topic of ailing health in a family member and how to handle the situation (which is, of course, to treat the person just like anyone else and to keep on living life to its fullest!).”  Book Wars blog
