    The Great One

    The main conflict in the book is that Wayne Gretzky was getting so good so fast that some of fans and players were starting not to like him because of it. They accused him of hogging the puck. At the start of some of the games the fans and other people at the hockey rink would be booing him and looking down on him. Also after the reporters heard how good he was they would constantly bother him by asking for interviews. The best part of the book is just learning about the greatest hockey player ever. I also liked how Wayne Gretzky got his own ice rink when he was only four years old. The only part that i did not like was how people would booed him befor his games. I would recommend this book to people who like hockey and other sports. I would recommend this book because it talks about the greatest hockey player that ever lived.
