Customer Review

on 20 June 2017
My first book by this author and I was blown away. It is a deft examination of teenage years, youth sport amd the wish fulfilment of protective parents. Anyone who has ever had a child play team sport will recognise some of the ugly traits herein and it even has a topicality due to a number of high-profile assault cases in professional sport. It is ultimately a story of conscience. Having loved it and been drawn into the characters' lives I approached the last fee pages with trepidation, but the ending was totally satisfying and unexpected - so rare. It has traces of Friday Night Lights and even Mystic River. Don't worry about the ice hockey. It's not about that.
