Maxed Out by Daphne Greer

More than anything, Max wants to play hockey like he used to. But since the death of his dad, Max has to take his special-needs brother, Duncan, with him everywhere he goes. The team needs Max to win an upcoming game, but one practice with Duncan makes it clear that it’s not safe to leave him unattended on the sidelines. With only a week to figure out how he can play in the big game, Max is feeling the pressure. Will he find a way to be a good teammate, a good brother and a good son? Or is it too much for one kid?

I can hear them. It's like I'm right there. I probably know who just scored.

Max and his family are reeling from the unexpected death of his father. His mother spends her time withdrawn in her room, leaving Max to care for his special-needs brother. What he wants to do is to just have a normal life but he can't imagine what that would like like without his dad. And more than anything, he thinks that playing hockey will help him move through the grief process. But he can't leave his brother alone while he plays, and his mom continues to be no help. The cover illustration will draw in students interested in baseball and lacrosse because at first glance, it is not clear that the helmet is worn by a hockey player. Another great addition from the Orca Currents series of hi-lo books for teens. Thanks to Puget Sound Council for the review copy.
