Bella's book picks up the September following the end of Understatement of the Year. Both Graham and Rikker figure in to the story, as do other hockey team members. You'll find out exactly how they're doing! :)

As for Coach, he's in the background. He retires, and it's not giving too much away to tell you that it's a bigger problem for Bella than for Rikker or Graham!

Thanks for reading. And all will soon be clear!(less)
