Steve had just came out of school when his friend Mark,introduced him to a stranger named Kenneth Agard Jr.Then Kenneth brought Steve to a place where the famous hockey team called the Chariots lived and had their practices. Steve found out that he was not allowed to go home to go home. So Steve tries to go home but he keeps getting caught. If you want to find out how Steve gets home to get home to his parents read this book I know you will like it.
It is a great book that is probably one of the best Matt Christopher books I've read. It is lots of fun and you can't take your eyes of it.
