As winter progresses, the strange man in the worn flight jacket dances frequently on the ice of the rink, expressing more with his movements than most people do with words.

My boss gave me this book to read. He said he felt like he was reading a story of his youth, growing up in a small town in Colorado. Carl uses his ice dancing ability to 'whoa' a girl that hangs out by the rink. The gentle girl appears at the rink and Carl does everything in his power to show his feelings for her. He finally succeeds through a series of almost frenetic ice dances. At first, this book did not appeal to me. I didn't relate to some guy dancing to show his feelings. But my boss told me it was the story of his teenage years around the ice pond in rural Colorado. It was a great read. Even if you don't like to dance, like my boss or Carl, you will enjoy this story.
