written by Lisa Bowes, illustrated by James Hearne

After trying the sliding sport of Luge, Lucy is back for another speedy adventure—this time, she laces up her skates and tries short track speed skating!

It’s not as easy as it looks. When you skate really fast around tight turns, you just might crash!
But with her friends at her side, Lucy skims across the ice in a thrilling speed skating race.
