Review

A Boston Globe Best YA Book of 2018
YALSA William C. Morris 2018 Finalist

"Check, Please! is very much a thing of our time in its approach to gay identity and romance... There's no big coming-out scene, no 'convert the lone homophobe' drama, no storyline cooked up just to educate the reader about the gay experience. Bitty doesn't need any of that, and Ukazu gives the reader credit for not needing it either." --NPR

"Check, Please -- an endlessly delightful web comic about hockey, baking, and bros." --Den of Geek

"Check Please! is the perfect reminder of the growth in queer narratives we've gotten in the past few years...filled with cute romance, zero toxic masculinity, and a really great sense of male comradery that's refreshing to read." -- The Mary Sue

"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...A slow-burn same-sex romance is just the icing on the cake (sorry--pie) in this irresistibly fun and utterly charming sports story. Volume two can't come fast enough" --Booklist, starred 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

"The art relies on thick linework and facial shots to tell the story, playing to Ukazu's knack for pithy, personality-showing dialogue. Ukazu blends a series of tropes (coming-of-age, coming out, an outsider finding acceptance) into one coherent, amusing tale." --Publishers Weekly

Book Description

The hilarious and heartbreaking confessions of a figure skater turned collegiate hockey player who's terrified of checking . . . and is desperately in love with the captain of his hockey team
