School Library Journal

“…liberally sprinkled with long descriptive passages about hockey and play-by-play accounts of games. A central conflict for the main characters and a tight resolution in the closing pages finish….Fans of the slap shot and hat tricks will be delighted to see their sport featured in these quick, easy reads.”
