I liked this book a lot. It was a good hockey book about hard work. This is one of the first chapter books that I actually liked reading. This boy Bill Spunksa goes to a hockey camp to see if he could make the hockey team. He meets a kid named Benny More where sparks start to fly between him and Spunksa. Bill eventually ends up hitting him which sends him to the hospital but Bill didn't mean to hit him hard it was an accident. I will not say if he made the cut or not thats for you to find out.

Bill Spunska, a shy young immigrant in Scrubs on Skates, turned out to be the most talented hockey player on that championship team. In this book, he gets the chance to play for the Maple Leafs, while maintaining his humility and charm.

Author Scott Young, a well known Canadian sportswriter, is also the father of musicial Neil Young.

This book is great. It shows the struggles a national high school student hockey player gets the chance to try out for a professional hockey team. This book takes you into how much competition their is at a camp for the best hockey players. Benny learns to overcome his challenges and to succeed by only caring about himself.
