Sam has moved with his family to Ottawa, leaving his friends and hockey teammates behind in Calgary. The talented goalie quickly makes the Kanata Kings Double-A team, but he feels insecure about his place on the team and at school. Then his mother breaks her leg, leaving Sam and his older brothers to keep the household running. Without the support of his old friends, Sam finds himself on his own and spread much too thin.

"Being a goalie is all about having a short memory so you can move on and focus on the next shot. Lorna Schultz Nicholson has done a great job of showing this in her book which makes it a great read!"
