CM Magazine - June 18, 2010
"Well-written, and the highly engaging secondary characters, especially Dakota Smith, will quickly draw readers into the story. In Mike Keats, Brouwer has created a well-rounded male protagonist, a young man desperately searching for a good role model during the difficult period between boyhood and manhood. Highly Recommended."

"Brouwer's use of controlled vocabulary and first-person viewpoint will succeed in enticing [reluctant readers] to attempt a novel. The emphasis on action keeps the plot moving swiftly."

"A substantial read with a unique plot and compelling characters...The excitement surrounding hockey and crime-fighting is sure to entertain."
NMRLS Youth Services Book Review - December 1, 2008
"The short chapters, rapid action, and adept hockey writing make this a prime choice for reluctant readers and hockey lovers."
