Brothers battle on and off the ice in this action-packed young adult sports novel. It's head-to-head, skate-to-skate, winner takes all!
T.J. has gotten himself out of the fancy prep school his father picked for him and into the public high school his twin brother Brad attends. Now T.J. is a shining new star on the hockey team where Brad once held the spotlight. And he's testing his popularity with Brad's friends, eyeing Brad's girl and competing to be captain of the team.
Meanwhile, the boys also grapple with problems at home, including divorcing parents and a troubled younger brother. The whole school is rooting for a big double-strength win...not knowing that their twin ice hockey stars are heating up the ice for a winner takes all face-off.
