"Brouwer's characters are believable, as is his plot, and readers will likely seek out further titles in this series."
"The reader becomes involved in the excitement of playing hockey, making new friends, and ultimately confronting those who are revealed to be responsible for harming the animals."
"More than just a sports story, Brouwer manages the weave of plots, creating a worthwhile book that will appeal to hockey loving readers as well as adventure and mystery readers. Written at a 3.8 RL, older reluctant readers will also find this a good match."
"An excellent combination of the sports-themed genre with mystery and teen novel elements. Highly Recommended."
