Yes, I was one of the best in the league. Not a big deal. I was born with fast hands and I didn't feel pain. The fact that Lauren was almost as good was a big deal. And she drew a bigger crowd. A lot of people wanted to cheer for her because she was a girl. And a lot wanted to cheer against her. I had a feeling she was going to get more ice time than I would.

Lauren Cross is the first female player on a WHL team—goaltender Joseph Larken's team, the Spokane Chiefs. For Joseph, the prospect of a season in the publicity shadow of a new female goalie promises to be a nightmare. Hiding behind a carefully built wall of anger, Joseph is relieved when a scandal knocks Lauren off the team…until he begins to believe she was framed.



Puget Sound Council - September 1, 2009
"Brouwer combines the themes of teen issues, relationships, drugs, and disillusionment with parents and sports into a high adventure with ethical decisions looming."
Resource Links - October 1, 2008
"What makes this book worth reading, especially if you are a hockey fan, is that Brouwer's main character is a goalie... AND he is in competition for the number one spot on his team with a girl!"
CM Magazine - June 1, 2008
"Compelling…readers of sports and mystery novels will enjoy this high-interest story…Highly recommended."
