Craig plays for a select high school hockey team in Canada, where apparently players come from all over and are put up with local families.

I liked this book a lot as it was about a boy who moved to Canada by himself to play for a select hockey team.

I think that this is a very good book by Sigmund Brouwer. I have read many of his books and this one is by far one of the most mysterious and keeps the reader guessing at all time. You never know what is going to happen because he does a very good job at keeping juicy details until there are absolutely needed.

As usual, this is the great teen fiction that one expects from Sigmund Brouwer. He hits the nail on the head every time.

If you have a reluctant reader on your hands (particularly kids interested in sports), give them this series.
