Editorial Reviews

CM Magazine
"Compelling…readers of sports and mystery novels will enjoy this high-interest story…Highly recommended."
Resource Links
"What makes this book worth reading, especially if you are a hockey fan, is that Brouwer's main character is a goalie... AND he is in competition for the number one spot on his team with a girl!"
Puget Sound Council
"Brouwer combines the themes of teen issues, relationships, drugs, and disillusionment with parents and sports into a high adventure with ethical decisions looming."

Read an Excerpt

Yes, I was one of the best in the league. Not a big deal. I was born with fast hands and I didn't feel pain. The fact that Lauren was almost as good was a big deal. And she drew a bigger crowd. A lot of people wanted to cheer for her because she was a girl. And a lot wanted to cheer against her. I had a feeling she was going to get more ice time than I would.

Another great book from this author! I really like his "Lightning on Ice" Series. This book is about a hockey goalie named Joseph Larken. Trouble is stirred up when a girl goalie joins the team. There are steroids, fights, and other things going on. Has great suspense and keeps a person reading.
