Ty | 7 comments Would anyone know the name of this book?
- young adult fiction, almost positive it was an Apple paperback
- plot was about a outcast teenage boy who was an ice hockey player but got hurt and had to stop. He becomes the ice skating/dancing partner of a popular girl at high school.
- has a scene at a school dance where she initially ignores him but then a song they skate to comes on and he dances with her.
- its not ice castles though very similar
- it was in my school library in the 80s so an older book.
Thanks

Ty | 7 comments Thanks. The movie looks interesting. It isn't based on the book I recall (not so tragic) but a pretty good match.

(sequel Ice Princess) or The Ice Mountain?
