Description

Hockey stars Mike "Crazy" Keats and his new friend, Dakota, are caught in a web of violence which makes winning a championship the least of their concerns. Dakota Smith is in trouble. But Mike "Crazy" Keats doesn't care. He is new to the Seattle Thunderbirds, and Dakota seems like a good guy to have for a friend. Unfortunately, not everyone accepts Dakota's Native North American heritage so easily.

Editorial Reviews

"A substantial read with a unique plot and compelling characters...The excitement surrounding hockey and crime-fighting is sure to entertain."

— Resource Links

"The short chapters, rapid action, and adept hockey writing make this a prime choice for reluctant readers and hockey lovers."

— NMRLS Youth Services Book Review

"Brouwer's use of controlled vocabulary and first-person viewpoint will succeed in enticing [reluctant readers] to attempt a novel. The emphasis on action keeps the plot moving swiftly."

— VOYA

"Well-written, and the highly engaging secondary characters, especially Dakota Smith, will quickly draw readers into the story. In Mike Keats, Brouwer has created a well-rounded male protagonist, a young man desperately searching for a good role model during the difficult period between boyhood and manhood. Highly Recommended."

— CM Magazine
