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.
"Compelling…readers of sports and mystery novels will enjoy this high-interest story…Highly recommended."

"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!"

"Brouwer combines the themes of teen issues, relationships, drugs, and disillusionment with parents and sports into a high adventure with ethical decisions looming."
